Abstract:

The development and testing of knowledge based computer tools for the integration of design and construction CIDCIS are described. A system architecture is presented which is intended to provide coordination among multiple designers working in separate engineering disciplines, using knowledge to estimate interface conditions between disciplines, recording who used any piece of design data created by others, and how such data was used, and checking for conflicts among disciplines, constructability, and construction cost and schedule impacts of design decisions. The system is based on the object oriented programming and blackboard control techniques. Current status of CIDCIS along with a simulation example is presented. Knowledge-based systems Object oriented programming Integrated design construction Blackboard control techniques.
