MetadataShow full item record
Construction projects often encounter problems related to scheduling reliability and to a mismatch between the expected and actual building performance. In order to reduce these problems, the ACCEPT project is developing an ICT system to manage construction works more efficiently by applying Lean construction principles, to increase the quality of executed works by implementing interactive checklists and sensors, and to share information in real time among different stakeholders. In the ACCEPT system, existing technologies such as Augmented Reality, BIM, mobile/wearable devices and sensors have been combined together to create an innovative ICT solution for construction management. The ACCEPT system consists of three interconnected applications: SiMaApp on mobile devices CoOpApp on smart glasses and Dashboard on PC. The main goal of this research paper is to describe the framework of the ACCEPT system and its applications.
