The use of interorganisational ICT in United States construction projects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In recent research, the use of ICT applications in real time construction projects have been documented and analysed extensively. However, there is a need for identifying and analysing in-depth the mechanisms influencing the use of interorganisational ICT applications and for solutions to eliminate potential barriers to the successful use of ICT. A model is developed providing insights in these mechanisms. Based on this model and expert interviews in the United States construction industry directions for solutions to barriers to the successful use of interorganisational ICT — document management applications, workflow management applications, and product modelling applications — in construction projects are formulated. These solutions focus on stimulating the personal motivation to use ICT, the external motivation to use this technology, and facilitating conditions in terms of knowledge and skills and acting opportunities to use ICT.
