Construction industry is an information-intensive industry and heavily relies on documents, including physical and virtual documentation and models, to exchange context-sensitive information among different project participants. Many research efforts have been made to help manage construction information; however, few of them considered the context-sensitive nature of the information. In this paper, the authors propose a new approach to facilitate the management of context-sensitive…

Ontology Modeling for Construction Safety Knowledge Management

The developed safety ontology will be the cornerstone for future ontology projects in the construction safety domain and recommends that future researchers should be oriented towards enhancing the information interoperability and creating ontology database in theConstruction safety domain to improve safety knowledge sharing.

Ontology-based feature modeling for construction information extraction from a building information model

A novel approach that utilizes ontology-based feature modeling, automatic feature extraction based on ifcXML, and query processing to extract information relevant to construction practitioners from a given BIM.

Ontology-Based Representation and Reasoning in Building Construction Cost Estimation in China

The proposed method can help a building construction cost estimator extract information more easily and quickly and can be translated into a set of concept models, work items, and construction conditions associated with the specific construction conditions.

A VISION FOR A FRAMEWORK TO SUPPORT MANAGEMENT OF AND LEARNING FROM CONSTRUCTION PROBLEMS

The authors expect that the envisioned framework will enable standardized storage and retrieval of construction problems/actions knowledge and apply an automated, semantic reasoning process to manage reported knowledge to allow construction engineers to better share and use corporate knowledge when searching for appropriate actions to remedy on-site construction problems.

A Context Ontology Development Process for Construction Safety

The authors propose a systematic process to help develop and represent a context ontology by applying two common tools and the advantages and disadvantages of current and proposed ontology development approaches are discussed.

Ontology-based optimisation of knowledge management in e-Construction

The development and implementation of the e-COGNOS platform has shown that the managerial aspect of knowledge management is harder to attain and semantic systems have proven the benefit of semantic systems.
