Communication in the building industry: a strategy for implementing electronic information
Eindhoven University of Technology
Information Technology in general and electronic communication in particular influence organizational structures. New communication media will change communication processes and business processes. To be able to analyze the influences of the new communication media, a clear view is required of the information flow and the information contents during a building project. Given this view, the question can be answered whether the business process and business organization fit the actual information needs. From the information flow frequency and the information contents, the most appropriate storage structure and transfer medium can be determined. The goal of this thesis is to create a formal description of the information exchange process during a building project, to provide the clear view as stated above.
