Part of: Preparing for Construction in the 21st Century


This paper provides a brief overview of the functional specifications for a Permit Tracking and Evaluation System (PTES) which is interfaced to the master schedule of design and construction activities of a megaproject. System objectives and requirements, process and data flow diagrams, and a procedural design flowchart, are used to define system functions and modules. The PTES would play a key role at the planning and execution stages in permit activity and resource coordination and in resolving internal and external conflicts.
