06 May 2010-Vol. 3, pp 1674-1677
TL;DR: In this article, an analysis of participants' decision-making process about information sharing in rail transit projects by mathematical model and the measures should be taken into information-sharing strategy from the perspective of the entire life cycle.
Abstract: This paper gives an analysis of participants' decision-making process about information-sharing in rail transit projects by mathematical model and the measures should be taken into information-sharing strategy from the perspective of the entire life cycle. On this basis, the path for information sharing in project is put forward.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present an information model for storing design information, recording design rationale, and managing design changes in a collaborative design system, which is built around a central library of generalized building components.
Abstract: Detailed design of building projects is a complex multidisciplinary process highly dependent upon effective aggregation of individual designs to produce a coherent set of final design documents. Throughout the detailed design process, changes are frequently introduced and need to be properly managed among the various members of the design team. This paper presents an information model for storing design information, recording design rationale, and managing design changes. The proposed model is built around a central library of generalized building components that can be used to describe a complete building project hierarchy. Each component allows the designer to store desired performance criteria and related design rationale. Each component is also sensitive to its own changes and automatically communicates such changes to affected parties through preset communication paths. The model, as such, provides improved design coordination and control over changes, thus helping to increase the consistency and productivity of the overall design process. Conceptual details of the model are described in this paper, and model implementation into a collaborative design system is presented in a companion paper.

Abstract: Purpose – The advent of web services and the semantic web have opened up opportunities for a new generation of interoperable systems on the web. The purpose of this paper is to show the importance of semantics in design and construction, and how this has long been recognised and addressed to varying extents by researchers.Design/methodology/approach – There is now the potential for designs to be developed through a system of collaborating design services and for input by the construction team members. The potential also extends to the construction phase where the designers can provide more timely responses to problems encountered in the field. Within this environment, there is the need for effective mechanisms for design and construction information management, in addition to an ontology that facilitates the sharing of design and construction information and the underlying semantics. This paper explores these trends in collaborative design and construction, and presents an ontology‐based approach to proje...
