||A Case Study of a National Building Industry Strategy for ComputerIntegrated Construction
||Computer integrated construction (CIC) is a future state of the use of ITin construction characterised by the extensive use of computers for all kindsof application as well as by the transfer of information between suchapplications in digital form. CIC necessitates an infrastructure of datastructuring and transfer standards, computer networks, digital informationservices for construction, etc. This paper presents the efforts made during thelast ten years by the Finnish construction industry to develop strategic partsof such an infrastructure, the RATAS project. In addition to a survey of anumber of technical projects, the paper also presents the organisationalaspects of the project and attempts to evaluate the results that have beenachieved so far.
