Abstract

This paper presents a tool assessing the benefits and hindrances of specific information integration opportunities identified by firms for potential implementation. Firms face numerous choices about which of many information integration opportunities to pursue. However, they lack guidance in selecting opportunities and preparing for successful implementation. The tool, developed by an industry research team consisting of 15 members from leading contractors, construction clients, and academia in the U.S., uses 37 benefit driver and 34 implementation hindrance questions that are scored to provide an assessment of a specific an integration opportunity. The tool has been applied to 16 test cases (of which 2 are detailed in this paper) and is shown to adequately assess issues key benefits and challenges, helping guide implementation choices.
