Biannually due to the fact 1994, the ecu convention on Product and method Modelling within the construction and building has supplied a evaluation of analysis, given useful destiny paintings outlooks, and supplied a verbal exchange platform for destiny co-operative examine and improvement at either eu and international levels.This quantity, of distinct curiosity to researchers, builders and end-users in product and method modelling and development informatics, comprises the lawsuits of the fifth ECPPM convention, held in September 2004. It offers a accomplished evaluate of eu learn, in addition to an perception in US, Canadian and Australian study. It additionally highlights views of ambient intelligence and up to date advancements, and also, offers the newest advancements in e-work and e-business, digital enterprising, and collaborative paintings, in addition to similar best-practice examples.

Each of these is discussed in the following sections. 1 Implementing an information management plan for the project The PIO will be responsible for implementing an overall information management plan for the project. The information management plan will address three primary elements: project tasks, information transactions, and overall integration issues. For each of these elements, the plan will analyze information requirements, design information management solutions, and produce specific information management deliverables.

From an information perspective, tasks are eWork and eBusisness in architecture, engineering and construction 32 associated with computer applications and transactions are associated with documents. • Assess the information outputs: Determine the significant information produced by each task. This typically corresponds to information required as inputs to other tasks. 3 Design of information management elements Given the analysis of the project information requirements (as established in the previous section) the PIO will design the information management strategies and solutions for the project and formalize the requirements that the overall plan will place on each of the project elements, as follows: • Formalize information input and output requirements: the requirements analyzed previously will be formalize as the information required as inputs for each task, and the information that each task must commit to producing.

Partly it was the dramatic possibilities which were seen suddenly by so many that help create a critical mass of activity which brought the investment, intellectual capital and imagination to produce the information infrastructure we have today. Of course there were many factors which aided and abetted the change but viewed from a distance these major drivers created an epidemic in human behaviour which still continues today. Vectors, visions and values 19 3 THE TIPPING POINT FORIT IN CONSTRUCTION So what happened to the Construction Industry and the application of Information Technology?
