||Information structure for integration of facility projects at operational airports
||Needham J P, Murphree E L
||Airport Organizations are faced with the increasingly complex task ofintegrating facility development projects with operational airport systems.Computer network systems present promising opportunities for meeting thischallenge. The goal of improving the integration of airport systems issimilar to the goal of computer-integrated construction in the Architectural,Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) industry.In the AEC/FM industry, researchers are applying object-oriented, graphicalmodels as a basis for data exchange. In this research, an informationstructure for the relationship of facility projects with airport managementand operations is formulated using graphical modeling. The purpose of thismodel is for application as an airport facilities and constructionmanagement, information reference and retrieval tool. A prototypeimplementation based on this work is located on the Internet at:http://www.host.trueserver.com/needham.
