We define e-construction as the building-construction sector where information and communication technologies are used in order to increase the efficiency, product quality and safety. The aim of the research programme is to develop these technologies, to study the consequences of their use and to incorporate them into practical engineering work in the following fields: -Computer supported modelling, which enables better precision of construction analyses and implicate safer and more economic products. -The use of e-technologies enables re-thinking of the industry organization; it enables better organisational, risk and knowledge management and will move construction industry closer to other knowledge based industries. -The use of e-technologies is fundamentally changing the way of engineering communication as well as documentation which is increasingly more digital-based and semantically rich. Introduction and implementation of e-technologies also demands sufficiently qualified user.
Significance for science
Numerical modelling: planned results that are important for the development of numerical analyses of structures are the following: (1) new approach to numerical search for optimal form of shell structures reinforced with space trusses. The major parameter for the analyses is so colled project element, which was proved as effective and robust approach; (2) models for shell structures will be tested and evaluated and are especially approapriate for shell structure with space stress and deformation state, and are suitable for the implementation of complex material models. Conceptual modelling: we will contribute to shift, from structural to semantic interoperability, especially in the field of product and process modelling methodologies and formal representations. The semantic modelling of complex entities that are present in our environment will generate new knowledge about modelling of large systems, construction processes in building lifecycle, through provenience and trust. Knowledge transfer. The innovative model of knowledge transfer on a micro and macro level with a special emphasise to the ICT based professional development models for virtual organisation and learning will be developed. The virtual environments efficiently link organisational and private sphere of individual for formal and informal learning.
Significance for the country
The program is inline with the Strategic agenda of European Technological Platform and covers the following major fields of the platform: (1) value added services; (2) industrializaiton; (3) Digtial models; (4) intelligent construction and building; (5) interoperability; (5) support for collaborative work; (6) knowledge sharing and increase in productivity; and (7) support with the information and communication technologies and transfer into practice. The program is inline with the Slovenian Development Strategy that encourages global competitiveness, innovation, use of ICT, learning, training and investments into R&D. Similar role has ICT in national R&D programme and reforms under Lisbon strategy. Research program eConstruction applies this horizontal priorities related to the use and advancement of ICT to construction sector.
