||Improving the brief through information and process modelling
||Yusuf F, Alshawi M
||Due to the vast amount of information and knowledge involved inconstruction projects, clients often have difficulties in identifying andcommunicating their actual requirements. In order to address thisinformation effectively during the briefing process, such information ismodelled into structured data models using EXPRESS-G technique. Theprocesses involved during the development of the brief, however, aremodelled using IDEF0 technique.The developed models establish thefoundation for the development of a computerised system, which utilise anobject oriented environment. The implemented object oriented data modelsthen form the framework for the presentation of the client's brief. Thesemodels, when implemented into the computerised environment, willsignificantly enhance the communication channel between the variousparties involved from a very early stage of a construction project. Theoutcome is an improved brief, which fulfils the client's budgetaryconstraints.
