Lack of a common data standard among all construction field offices has added cost to overall U.S. Army Corps of Engineers automation efforts. The creation of a common resident office data standard with intelligent decision support system would facilitate the integrated development of all field office automation and enhance data exchange within the Corps and between the Corps and clients. The Corps is developing a highly integrated resident management system for construction field offices. The plan is that any data item should be entered only once, and used for many users and many reports. The system will intelligently evaluate data, provide institutional knowledge from lessons learned from previous projects, and also be flexible to allow for different policies to be established within the system. This integrated decision support system for Resident Offices will provide great savings to the Corps of Engineers and construction companies.
