||Constructability analysis is critical for the success of an AEC project, but its effective implementation is difficult due to the inherent complexity and multi-trades interaction over a frequently long development period. A consistently integrated project model can provide a collaboration platform among project designers, constructors, suppliers and owners/stakeholders to jointly improve the project construction. This paper looks at the integration of the key aspects, namely product, process, resource, and function, to facilitate the collaboration in constructability analysis. Specifically, it presents a COmponent State nEtwork cEntric (COSEE) Model to integrate these 4 important project aspects. Moreover, the relationships among product, construction work package, intermediate function system, and space resource model are examined. Based on the centric component state network and the relationship among the 4 aspect models, the spatial and temporal consistency in the project schedule can be verified.
