Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper discusses fundamental requirements necessary for implementing a model-based document production and management system for Construction. This system intends to capture, in concert with the contemporaneous documents, other information about context, rationale and process. This is a requisite for formulating a project's history, and reconstructs the true accounts of what happened during a period of construction. Accurate accounts of project events are essential for a successful and equitable claim resolution.
