To realize a richer communication among multiple disciplines participants of A/E/C project, an object-oriented product or project model is useful and powerful. especially sharing and maintaining the project data from planning to design and construction. However, there are many kind of conflicts among these participants throughout a project life cycle. Hence, the constraint management mechanism should be needed in order to solve these conflicts and to realize the concurrent design and construction. The scope of this research is to analyze a constraint management cycle and to establish a constraint management system supporting a concurrent design and construction with the object-oriented project model.
