Abstract:

The National Construction Thesaurus is a relational database software package under development by the Navy to standardize construction terminology. The thesaurus will list names for most construction products and processes, define them, and list their preferred names. It is part of a keynoting system called DRAWSPEC LINK, which will be used to link construction processes and materials on drawings to their respective specifications. The development of the National Construction Thesaurus is approximately 12.5-percent complete. Once completed, the National Construction Thesaurus will increase the efficiency of the construction process by making it easier for designers and builders to speak the same language.
