Internet-based Information and Communication Systems on Remote Construction Projects: A Case Study Analysis

Weippert, Achim, Kajewski, Stephen L., & Tilley, Paul A. (2002) Internet-based Information and Communication Systems on Remote Construction Projects: A Case Study Analysis. Construction Innovation: Information, Process, Management, 2(2), pp. 103-116.


In an attempt to bring the unique talents of various construction industry project participants together in a more productive and integrated manner, the Online Remote Construction Management (ORCM) project commenced in July 1999 proposing to test, field trial and/or evaluate the implementation of various Internet-based Construction Project Management (ICPM) systems and information and communication technologies (ICT) on five case study projects over a two-year period. This paper provides final results, findings and recommendations obtained after two years of research, surveying and benchmarking activities on one of the five ORCM case study projects. ‘Critical Success Factors’ are identified offering a positive contribution to the successful implementation of ICT tools and ICPM systems on remote construction projects. Similar research activities were undertaken on the other four ORCM case study projects and will be considered in future papers.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
