title The Role of Computers in the Building Life Cycle - What Computers Can and Cannot Do
source CAADRIA 2003 [Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 974-9584-13-9] Bangkok Thailand 18-20 October 2003, pp. 905-918
summary The objective of this paper is to provide a conceptual framework that facilitates the development of integrated software environments that address the data and process needs of all building-related disciplines through the whole buil ding life cycle. The conceptual framework is based on a comprehensive analysis of the data and processes involved in d ecision-making, which is the common abstraction of all disciplines throughout the building life cycle. The role of computers is examined in every step of the decision-making process and through the building life cycle, focusing on what computers can and cannot do. The capabilities of computers are the used to present a vision for what the future of building design, construction and operation may be. While the vision is based on technologies that are already available, its realization requires significant research and development efforts. Conceptual, technical and strategic challenges to realizing the vision are presented and discussed.
