Collaborative Construction Process Management: The project COCkPiT
MetadataShow full item record
Compared to other industries the construction industry (CI) is highly fragmented and suffers from a low productivity rate, a weak usage of resources and delays. Due to a poor collaboration, construction processes are inefficient, affecting negatively budget and schedule. Most projects in construction are “one-of-a-kind”, which are characterized by non-repetitive processes. There are just a few prototypical approaches and applications for scheduling and monitoring of non-repetitive construction projects. Digitalisation, discussed in manufacturing as »Industry 4.0«, has the potential to facilitate and improve collaboration and processes in the CI. The main goal of this research paper is to describe the concept and the objectives that will be followed within the »COCkPiT« research project.
