Evaluation of IT costs in construction
Automation in Construction 10 (6) (2001) pp. 649-658
Information Technology (IT) evaluation is a research area that has received limited attention in the construction and engineering literature. Yet, the justification of investments in IT is one of the many challenges facing managers in the construction industry today, as there is an ever-increasing demand for organisations to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their IT deployments. In developing a deeper understanding of the evaluation process, the authors of this paper present a review of IT evaluation in construction from a benefit and cost perspective. In doing so, identifying future challenges for IT cost evaluation research in construction.
