||This paper introduces the Penn State University CIC Research Program and its philosophy. The primary focus of the program is to model the processes and information required to provide a facility. Given these models one can then define and develop better computer tools to integrate the building process. The Integrated Building Process Model (IBPM) was developed as a basic model of the essential functions to manage, plan, design, construct, and operate a facility. Using this model as a basis, an information architecture comprising several categories of information required to support the process was defined. These elements describe the process, the product, the process control elements, the feedback, and the constraints under which the subject facility is provided. Several projects currently being developed to illustrate theintegration of these models from a single user's perspective are presented.
