||A formal approach for the analysis of AEC/FM related processes has been undertakenin the frames of the EU ICCI cluster project (IST-2001-33022). The approachis based on a modified application of the Generic Process Protocol (GPP) proposedin a research project funded by the UK Engineering and Physical SciencesResearch Council, coupled with a dedicated usage of the UML technique. GPP isapplied on high-level, for the definition of a multi-dimensional matrix capturing theclassification of roles, activities and communication, together with their interrelationships,whereas UML diagramming is used for detailed representation ofsub-processes. The original GPP matrix is modified in accordance with two objectives:(1) to prepare the matrix in a suitable form for database management as wellas Web-based presentation and processing, and (2) to improve the capabilities forinformation capture so that various analyses can be easily performed and reported.In this paper, first the suggested modelling approach is outlined, and then alreadyavailable results of an ongoing study of current developments are presented anddiscussed. The reported study synthesises the performed examination of the ICCImember projects OSMOS, ISTforCE, eConstruct, DIVERCITY, eLEGAL andGLOBEMAN and of several other large efforts and literature sources. At the end,future directions for work are extrapolated and some general conclusions regardingfurther development efforts are drawn.
