||CONCUR (Concurrent Design and Engineering in Building and Civil Engineering) isa four year initiative in the European Union Brite-EuRam workprogramme involvingindustry partners Skanska (Se), IVO Power Engineering (Fi) and Taylor Woodrow(UK), the specification body STABU (Nl), R and D institutions VTT (Fi) and TNO (Nl),and universities DUT (Nl) and KTH (Se). The project will develop, implement andindustrially deploy an integrated CAx environment for concurrent constructiontendering.CONCUR is addressing the integration of information in the stages which lead tosubmission of tenders. The goal is to reduce tendering cost by 30 - 50% usingintegrated information systems and applications. The tendering process is a complexprocess involving many disciplines each of which uses different types of information. .In essence it is an information refinement process, in each refinement cycleaddressing the high risk aspects of the moment.In CONCUR we are addressing the integrated use of information and applications,using Project (Product and Process) Data Technology Using the major informationalitems the refinement process will come to information specifications. Thespecifications being derived are not re-invented but use is made of existing andemerging standards such as STEP and IAI. Results of the CONCUR efforts can be fedback to STEP and IAI.
