Life-cycle management of construction projects based on virtual prototyping technology
Guo, H. L., Li, Heng, & Skitmore, Martin (2010) Life-cycle management of construction projects based on virtual prototyping technology. Journal of Management in Engineering, 26(1), pp. 41-47.
Life-cycle management (LCM) has been employed in the management of construction projects for many years in order to reduce whole life cost, time, risk and improve the service to owners. However, owing to lack of an effective information sharing platform, the current LCM of construction projects is not effectively used in the construction industry. Based upon the analysis of the information flow of LCM, a virutal prototyping (VP)-based communication and collaboration information platform is proposed. Following this, the platform is customized using DASSAULT sofware. The whole process of implementing the VP-based LCM are also discussed and, from a simple case study, it is demonstrated that the VP-based communication and collaboration information platform is an effective tool to support the LCM of construction projects.
