Data Management

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a widely adopted method to manage data in the construction domain.  BIM data management is continuously and intensively developed by the chair and forms the foundation for current research in this field. The current research includes, among others: the application of graph-based technologies for the analysis of building designs; the analysis of relationships between information and documents in the information delivery phase based on semantic web technologies; the development of approaches to optimize logistics, supply chain, and prefabrication, e.g., with Digital Twins; the improvement of project information management using smart contracts and blockchain technology.
