||This paper presents the SYDOX/MATCOMP/Xi French project, whose goalis to provide the construction actors with an IT-based, on-line aid forcomponent specification and selection at different levels of the constructionlife cycle. We will describe the main features of the information systems(IS), then specific aspects addressed by the project. SYDOX is aimed atdefining and demonstrating a prototype to access information aboutMATerials and COMPonents used in construction, implemented on aWWW server and focused on a restricted sub-part of construction products.We will present the work done: methodology for data structuring, structureof the IS, database structuring, user interface, use of scenarios (enabling aselection and an adaptation of the information retrieved, on the basis of a setof criteria commonly used by professionals), hypertext links towards ataxonomic structuring of the information, application to window and floor,and some perspectives for the IS.
