Abstract: The increase in litigation is driven primarily by economic factors. The increased use of microcomputers has followed as a direct result of the need for better information control and dissemination. Construction claims invariably involve a large number of documents. The management of these documents and the data they contain is paramount to showing entitlement to a particular claim item. This paper discusses the methods of using microcomputers to capture data from a wide variety of sources and to categorize and sort it for evaluation.
