Part of: Excellence in the Constructed Project


Although the effectiveness of computers in construction control during execution has been shown in several case studies, their use is largely made for planning functions. Also, their use is mostly limited to large construction firms. This paper once more identifies the need of computers for job-site control, lists some of the applications and concludes with a suggestion for establishing nation-wide databanks managed by construction experts who could solve day-to-day problems of the members of the construction community.
