Integration, Interoperability, Construction Value Chain And The Construction Product Model

  1. 1. CE 733 IT IN CONSTRUCTION PRESENTATION “Integration, Interoperability, Construction Value Chain and The Construction Product Model” by BARIŞ VAROL
  2. 2. Integration and Interoperability <ul><li>Integration is a process of combining or accumulating; the bringing together of two or more systems. </li></ul><ul><li>Interoperability is the ability of a system or a product to work with other systems or products without special effort on the part of the customer. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Data integration is the process of combining data residing at different sources and providing the user with a unified view of these data. This process emerges in a variety of situations both commercial (when two similar companies need to merge their databases) and scientific (combining research results from different bioinformatics repositories). Data integration appears with increasing frequency as the volume and the need to share existing data explodes. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>With respect to software, the term interoperability is used to describe the capability of different programs to exchange data via a common set of business procedures, and to read and write the same file formats and use the same protocols. (The ability to execute the same binary code on different processor platforms is 'not' assumed to be part of the interoperability definition!) The lack of interoperability strongly implies that the described product or products were not designed with standardization in mind. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Objective <ul><li>Develop standards and tools that enable design systems to interoperate with all systems related to construction sequencing and scheduling, for example, including procurement,the automated generation of data packages, and the tracking of materials or services from provider to construction site. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Purpose <ul><li>Design systems to establish the base for construction sequence and schedule in automated fashion.Determine a methodology and standard for interoperability to form other systems for the purpose of optimizing the speed and fidelity af relevant information flow. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The design and construction of buildings involves the collaboration of many different companies and individuals. These include architects, civil engineers, procurement contractors, equipment and materials suppliers, project managers and building trade general and sub-contractors. These companies and individuals collaborate in a very complex work process that typically relies on numerous software packages from different software vendors over a lengthy design, approval and construction cycle. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>In most cases today these collaborating parties share this vast quantity of information through the exchange of traditional paper documents. Electronic documents may be shared in some cases, however this generally occurs only when two or more parties use the same version of the same software with which the information was initially created. The electronic exchange of design, construction and related documents is in most cases prevented by the absence of a consistent format and syntax for data descriptions used by the firms involved. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>As a result the same information is often manually interpreted by humans and re-entered into one or more different software systems. This practice, which is often repeated over and over again by each participant in the design and construction work process, is very labor and time-intensive, error prone and costly. The importance of Integration and Interoperability comes into the picture here. </li></ul>
  10. 15. <ul><li>Clients and costumers(the market) today demand a reduction of time and cost when speaking of construction of housing, while at the same time increasing the demands concerning quality and environmental issues.As a consequence of this, information and communication flows have become more important to control,when attempting to reduce development times. Right information at the right place and time throughout the entire process of house building will help to eliminate a lot of non-value adding activities. These new demands necessitate a more transparent house building process, competent personnel (education and training), and the ability to perform changes necessary to survive in a competitive market. </li></ul>
  11. 16. <ul><li>The expression “value chain management” is defined as “the manner of managing, controlling, handling, and directing a sequence of activities a company carries out to create products/services that increase profit for the company and generates profit/value for the customer (Lindfors, 2000).” By using the term value chain management, it is implied that value has to be added at all points in the supply chain. </li></ul><ul><li>The research project ‘Value chain management in construction’ intends to examine and re-evaluate today’s house building process and together with industry produce and establish a single, coherent process model. </li></ul>
  12. 17. Construction Product Model <ul><li>Product modelling is used to create a data store covering the building’s entire life cycle. </li></ul><ul><li>With the help of a product model, all the data needed for the design, construction, use and maintenance of buildings is easier to keep under control – quickly, in real time, graphically and in digital form. With the help of the product model you can exchange and manage a huge quantity of information more reliably and efficiently than before. </li></ul>
  13. 18. <ul><li>Product and process models provide the necessary information framework for implementing computer systems for the architect/engineering/construction (A/E/C) industry. Although the focus of these models is slightly different, both are needed to provide a foundation for managing project information during the design and construction phases. Design information—&quot;product&quot; information based on building components—needs to be integrated with construction management tasks, the &quot;process&quot; information necessary to build the components. It is therefore important to provide an integrated information model to bridge the gap between product and process information for a construction project. An integrated information model not only encourages those involved in construction to use and add to design information, but also provides richer information representation, better efficiency and data consistency, and the flexibility to support life-cycle information management. </li></ul>
