Abstract:

The Theater Construction Management System TCMS is a collection of construction management and engineering software packages integrated by data links that allow data sharing between functional areas of the construction management process. The philosophy of TCMS development is to use commercially available software wherever possible, thereby allowing the Army to use the best software available without directly absorbing the costs associated with software development. This study investigated the possibility of using a commercial computer-assisted design and drafting CADD program in conjunction with geographical information systems GISs to automate the process of site design. Current and most commonly used site design practices were reviewed the requirements and conceptual basis for such a software integration were developed and two potential advanced technology site design applications were outlined.
