Abstract     [Full Text]
    In this paper design and fabrication information system for steel bridge construction is studied and proposed according to the progress of Construction CALS/EC in the construction industry in Japan. The data exchange in this system bases on the text file as well as CAD data with simplified drawings. The concept of this system is discussed following the analysis on the issues of the conventional system. The application of the product model is also discussed including effects and issues on the inspection system. This paper is based on the study carried out by Special Committee on Construction CALS of JASBC to which author belong.
