A multi-view cooperative platform for building construction.
Building construction is a complex activity, involving numerous and heterogeneous actors during relatively short periods. The methods of project management used are specific because of the complexity of the architectural "object" and the prototype character of each operation. Methods usually used in industrial sectors (such as workflow definition or inverse engineering) are not transposable in the AEC domain. In fact, coordination modes existing in this domain are adapted to his particularities (decentralised decisions, uncertainties on the building construction methods etc.). We suggest to model this particular cooperative activity using a driven model engineering based on the MOF archi-tecture. This form of engineering allows us to define entities in relation in the cooperation at a high abstraction level. Then this abstraction leads us to design tools adapted to the cooperation in the AEC sector by defining an infrastructure based on a cooperation model. We will suggest a new assistance tool for coor-dination (multi-view cooperative platform) taking into account the analyses of coordination modes and the experiment of IT potentialities. It proposes an in-formation representation adapted to the user context and viewed in an adequate visualization mode.
