||This paper focuses on the role of the IT tools that have enabled the development of a decisionsupport system, the Integrated Design System (IDS). The IDS facilitates the derivation ofproduction related designs for structural steelwork, by integrating the information flow fromeach of the existing processes. It will enable the designer to investigate the effects ofconceptual decisions on fabrication, transportation, and erection costs, and assess theconstructability of designs, providing advice on feasible and economic alternatives. This hasbeneficial implications for the overall economy and constructability of the finished design.
