AbstractAEC (Architectural, Engineering, Construction) companies lack a consistent way to assess to what degree their processes are inefficient and thus do not know where investments in automation and integration tools could benefit them most. This report presents a detailed study of project management processes in the areas of cost control, contract management and financial management based on examples from the Stanford SEQ construction project. It discusses a framework for developing and analyzing business process models. This report focuses on time card processing. The report studies the effects internet-based systems could have on the organization, duration, and effort required for construction management processes. It presents the potential qualitative and quantitative benefits of an internet-based project control system over the current paper-based systems.
