Abstract

Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) teams are adopting digital models in their work practice but are slow to move digital models to the meeting workspace. This is largely due to cultural issues and the lack of established methods or tools to support group interactions and multi-disciplinary interaction with digital models and digital artifacts. This report discusses research efforts to investigate the use of digital artifacts by AEC project teams and the factors that influence - positively or negatively -meeting process and outcome as a function of those artifact interactions.
