1995). Current research efforts are being made to integrate all aspects of the project process (preplanning, design, construction and start-up) using three-dimensional computer models and integrated databases. This paper will discuss 4D CAD and its role in the integration process and the functions of the integrated system in the construction process. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODELS ON THE CONSTRUCTION SITE? The authors were involved with the Construction Industry Institute’s (CII) research in the use of three-dimensional computer models for construction management applications spanning from 1993 to 1995.

A CMM is a variation on a phased model that is used to analyze the construction process through visualization. It asserts the inclusion of a fourth dimension because its CMM analysis focuses on a process that relates planning and management decisions directly to the sequence of the building’s construction. 44 D. , 1996). Its goal is to establish a “common ground” on which all designers can interact and enable them to better understand the design intent. This has been explored in a number of other variations in other disciplines (LaCourse, 1990; Potter, 1998; Johnson, 1999).

Proceedings of computing in civil engineering congress: 404–409. ASCE. E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Construction, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA Abstract This study examines the fourth dimension as the product of a fundamental shift in a paradigmatic world view. This shift changes the normal way of “seeing” or visualizing the obviousness of the context of our everyday practices and leads in a different direction with a completely new vision of the processes antiquated by its transformation.
