||Towards an information and decision-support system for the buildingindustry
||Leslie H G, Mckay D G
||Although the building industry has passively accepted the computerindustry's offerings for some time, it is now beginning to assess its ownoperational needs and how computers might best support them. BuildingInformation Systems is working closely with industry groups in Australia andNew Zealand towards a system for effective management and exchange ofbuilding-related information. Part of this impetus has resulted in AnInformation and Decision-Support System for the Australian Building Industrypublished by the National Committee on Rationalised Building as a documentto promote discussion. It is widely supported and is now being redrafted as astrategy for establishing a framework within which a person or an organisationcan solve specific local problems and, in doing so, contribute to a cohesiveindustry effort. The first parts of this strategy - the problems and the pointsto consider in their solution - are discussed.
