title STEP approach applied to a design support system in construction, within the context of concurrent engineering
source Timmermans, Harry (Ed.), Third Design and Decision Support Systems in Architecture and Urban Planning - Part one: Architecture Proceedings (Spa, Belgium), August 18-21, 1996
summary The purpose of this article is to show that a building project design requires a concurrent engineering approach. Therefore, a concurrent preparation phase which requires the choice of a product approach applied to the building trade will be defined. During the building project design, handled data are multiple; current models, used to define, to represent, and to communicate these data, are insufficient. To solve these problems, the achievement of this approach has to be supported by reliable models and computer systems. These systems have to integrate data set and treatments one. The models and tools used in this concurrent preparation must to take into account the standards set in the domain, in particular the STEP (STandard Exchange for Product model data) project. STEP technology uses a methodology of product data definition which can be applied to a particular domain: the application protocol approach. This methodology will be applied to data and support system modelling, so that a concurrent approach to the building trade can be achieved. Finally the specification and the software architecture of this system will be presented.
