||Integrating three-dimensional product models into engineering and construction project information platforms
||Timo Hartmann, Frank Neuberg, Martin Fischer
||In the last couple of years, construction companies have invested in the development of engineering and construction project information platforms (ECPIP). ECPIPs store information items in databases on centralized serv-ers and enable project managers to track different versions of and relations between information items. However, most commercial ECPIPs do not support the duality of product and process management that is needed by the construction industry. With the emergence of three dimensional (3D) building information product models to support project man-agement this shortcoming of commercially available systems is becoming increasingly critical. This paper motivates this product-process management problem, addresses a number of emerging solutions, and proposes a conceptual ar-chitecture and development process towards ECPIPs.
