We present a conceptual framework enabling to manage broad set of activities supported by multi-module software application for construction project management. The proposed structure is based on a common building information model (the industry standard IFC Model — ISO PAS 16739), the ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System, for high-level process specification, and an integrated software infrastructure encompassing the product and process information exchange among the CAD-ERP and Scheduling Systems that support IFC. In this context, we developed Construction Management Phases for Software Interoperability, Organizational and IT Management Processes with using of ARIS methodology in order to implement IFC views. Based on this, we outline a web-based environment enabling to plug in all component tools via a common client, providing a coherent GUI.
