||Conceptual models for communicating knowledge in the building industry - implementation of the cube system
||Christiansson P, Modin J
||This paper presents the conceptual models that emerged during thedevelopment of the Cube demonstrator in the Cube project at LundUniversity in Sweden. The Cube project was led by the Department ofConstruction Management with the systems development being done by theauthors, at the KBS-Media Lab of the Department of Structural Engineering.The paper presents the underlying conceptual models for knowledge transferused in the Cube system. In the Cube system the formalized rules do notapply to the knowledge itself but rather to the way it is conveyed. The goal forthese models is to assist a growth of building knowledge that is driven fromthe building site and the daily situations there. It is showed how knowledgechunks are labeled and stored in answer boxes specific for each project orbuilding site. Existing classification systems, BSAB, are implemented togetherwith a dynamic limited vocabulary and task-oriented headings to form anefficient knowledge communication and retrieval system.
