AbstractThis document describes the Scope, Time, and Cost Management System (also called SPACE CAKE, System for Project mAnagement in Civil Engineering using Computer Aided Knowledge Engineering). The document serves as a manual for developers that use the system and as a archive for future generations that have to live with the results of those developers. The document first describes the architecture of the system. The main system of a generic model (cmim) and the five modules (ib, am, sa, sc, and ec) that are implemented in the system. For each of these models or modules the paper describes: the goal, the knowledge (or information structure) implemented, and a manual. It then shows how these five modules are combined in one model (comb). This combined model is specialized to specific types of building projects, i.e., concrete structures (cs) and apartment complexes (ae). The concrete structures model is used to demonstrate the whole system. The apartment complex model is an example of flow-based planning. The last part of the document shows how you can start your own model or module and plug it in the system and how you can update the generic cmim model. It ends with a discussion of future work that can be done to complete this system. In appendix A you can find some experiences I had while working with Kappa that can be useful for others too.
