The construction industry exhibits a unique set of characteristics such as fragmentation, multidisciplinary development, substantial financial commitment, varying complexities, long time spans, and a large number of geographically separated stakeholders involved at all the stages of the projects. Project managers are required to integrate the efforts of all the stakeholders for required collaboration and coordination for successful project management. This requires a quantum leap in the use of shared IT systems, integrated information processing and communication systems and can be achieved through Web based communication. Benefits of web-based systems would be realized if at the planning stage, equal attention is given to technical, managerial, people and cultural issues. This paper discusses the planning issues and provides a road map for the organisations to adopt the technology.

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.
