Expert Systems Applications in Construction Management and Engineering
Expert System (ES) technology can improve construction quality and productivity. Although commercial interest began in 1980 and there has been a clearly felt need, the development of ES for construction has been rather slow. One of the reasons could be the non-realization of the promise of these systems by the industry which resulted in relatively poor funding of such developments. This paper summarizes the concepts of ES for construction management, hardware/software requirements, and lists potential areas for development of ES in the industry. The ES availability in the industry is summarized.
