Abstract: This study was executed in order to develop a construction technology information system. This system is capable of efficient information storage, search, and share. The "Knowledge Document Management System (KDMS)" developed in this study stores the knowledge on a server and enables management of the information by various access systems. The KDM explorer function and file browser can manage personal files, and users are able to achieve flexible knowledge management through a file viewer and preview function. In addition, the content-based search function provides a word-highlighted simple search. The KDMS can be helpful in managing mass technical information by each project, and search information considering the characteristics of construction technological information.
