Interactive Workspaces in Construction (22 Feb 2002)
Our current work tests whether construction information workspaces (CIW) could address these shortcomings and improve a project team's ability to understand and evaluate project information and potentially make decisions faster and more reliably. We developed a CIW based on the iRoom infrastructure developed by the Computer Science Department at Stanford. We added domain-specific construction services, controllers, and viewers that support 'highlighting' to focus the team's attention on relationships between project information in disparate views. The goal is to assess whether the CIW and the 'highlighting' visualization technique improve a team's ability to make faster and more reliable decisions.

This lecture will discuss this ongoing research, present our observation of project meetings and explain the framework to evaluate the observations, and video showing the current CIW system. This research is being performed under Professor Martin Fischer at the Center For Integrated Facility Engineering at Stanford University.
