This paper presents current research and develop on process modeling that can support cooperative planning among designer, engineer, project planner and project manager in industrialized building construction projects. The intended process modeling is coined as OOPM: an object-oriented process modeling for industrialized building construction planning and control which: 1) can facilitate the identification and formulation of corporate-level technological solutions and resource opportunities and constraints, 2) can interface existing corporate database to access, retrieve and structure project planning information, 3) can integrate procurement, engineering and construction through an integrated project configuration (IPC) model, and 4) can provide standard building systems and construction systems library as object models, interface object models and object-oriented planning models. For industrialized building construction projects, the development of standard building systems and construction systems (SBCS) library can improve the performance of cooperative project planning. The SBCS library is in fact a corporate knowledge-base that consolidates technical and performance information of building systems and construction systems.
