Digital assistant for the cooperative construction process in AEC

Résumé :

ABSTRACT: The article focuses on specificities of the building construction stage as cooperative activity.
We identify methods and tools of coordination at present used and detail their limits. Modelling the concepts
of cooperation in design / construction and the relations between these concepts allows us to describe the domain
and suggest new tools. We present an experiment in progress with the prototype Image.Chantier. This
tool provides a new form of distribution of coordination information, based on the meeting report document
structure. The assessment of this experiment has led us to suggest new specifications for a building construction
management system: a digital assistant for cooperation during building construction stage.
