Generating, sharing and maintaining project data among multiple disciplines and throughout a project life cycle is difficult task in the highly fragmented A/E/C industry. Presently, the A/E/C/ industry dose not have a common standards for exchanging project data to allow applications to share graphical and non-graphical information produced and consumed at the various stages of a project cycle. The scope of this research is to establish an object-oriented project model (PMAPM) supporting multiple views that are required by the various participants of an A/E/C project. The objective is the eventual development of an integrated system which includes activities from project planning to the facility management. The object-oriented project model is intended to link CAD systems, relational database, knowledge-based systems and other conventional application software; these applications can easily be treated as a view-function embedded in a view-object of PMAPM.
