||A model based approach for construction process modelling
||Process modelling methods have been developed for describing different aspects of industrial andother processes. Each method has a specific scope for which it has been designed. Used outside thisscope the method may prove quite inadequate. The generic construction process modelling methodGEPM has been developed as a synthesis of features of other methods. GEPM is flexible in a sensethat the conceptual model can be changed in order to achieve specialised additional features whenneeded. The database implementation supports this approach as well as it enables the users tointeract with the developed process models through views. The chosen views correspond toscheduling, IDEF0, and flow methods. GEPM can be used for describing partly company specificquality systems with reference models, which can be converted into project specific models usingcertain rules and finally these specific models become schedules.
