Emerging Information and Communication Technologies and the Discipline of Project Information Management

  • Thomas Froese
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4200)

Abstract

Project Management for architecture, engineering, and construction projects could include a well-defined sub-discipline of project information management.  Not only might this improve project performance, particularly when new information and communication technologies are used, but it could also improve the technology transfer process—increasing the potential of new information and communication technologies being adopted into industry practice.  An overall framework for project information management is presented that includes Information Management Plans consisting, in part, of a collection of Information Management Methods Statements.  To enhance technology transfer potential, it is suggested that information and communi-cation technology developers create templates for Information Management Methods Statements relating to their proposed systems.
