The current state of computing in building design and construction: A detailed survey

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    An exhaustive IT-survey is made in the Danish construction industry in 1995. The outcome of this survey is outlined for a selected number of issues, such as number and types of CAD-systems, data base systems, networking etc. The survey shows, that the use of IT is massive. A detailed investigation in relation to AI-based systems is presented. This indicates that AI-based systems/approaches have not yet penetrated in the Danish construction industry. Determinants relevant to technology penetration are described, and the immediate potential for AI-penetration are discussed and compared with the actual status. Finally, we conclude that there is a severe lack of awareness about AI-systems in the building sector.
