CHAPTER 5

 

ANSWERS

 

  1. An action item can be identified by the person responsible for the action item, any interested parties, as well as the person who assigned the action item. The action item description along with its start and stop date are also characteristics of an action item.
  2. BIM is a building design and documentation methodology characterized by the creation and use of coordinated, internally consistent computable information about a building project in design and construction.
  3. A workflow is a defined sequence of parallel or serial tasks that define an administrative task stating what is to be accomplished at each step of the workflow route, who is to accomplish it and how much time is allocated for processing on that step. Workflow is a means of defining a standard process where many steps or many individuals are involved in a coordinated activity.  For example, the preparation of a contract, the review and execution by the contractor and then by the owner is a workflow.
  4. The steps taken in reviewing and modifying or creating a new workflow process, force a project team to define the business rules that will govern the way they process certain activities. The workflow creates a standard process that all participants can use both to pace their work through the required steps and document the actions taken.  The historical results of workflow can provide a basis for process improvement for the rest of the current project or for follow-on projects.
  5. Tracking outstanding issues with a project Extranet provides a consistent means of monitoring progress and status across the entire project or enterprise while providing a safety net to ensure that items do not become forgotten.
  6. An automatic audit trail allows each author and reader the means to conveniently check if pertinent documents have been read by all the interested parties. The audit trail takes away the excuse “I didn’t get your message” because the audit trail will document if someone has been notified about the document and whether they read it or not after having received that notification.  Also, in the event of litigation, the audit trail will provide a record of when the document was created and locked, who was notified about it and who read it, when and how many times.
  7. Having communications in a centralized database allows all interested parties authorized access to those documents in accordance with their security provisions and provides a central location that does not depend upon each individual’s local e-mail account being maintained throughout the project history and beyond. The message content that would be contained in the e-mails would be searchable in the project database if it were contained there.
  8. Having drawings associated with the Extranet, provides all users with access to both current and historical drawings for such purposes as coordination during design, mark-up of drawings for value engineering, availability for examination by potential bidders, maintaining a subscription list that will advise of changes to drawings and allowing for drawing print ordering through e-procurement.

 

 

 

  1. When planning a meeting agenda, evaluations can be made of who should attend the meeting, what they should bring to the meeting, and how long each topic will be discussed as well as the order in which it is discussed. Knowing the agenda content and sequence in advance of a meeting, allows the participants to more effectively plan their participation whether it is in person or virtual.
  2. Assuming that a punch list is required due to scopes of work either being incomplete or substandard in quality, publishing on an Extranet provides an efficient means of distribution of that information to all interested parties. The use of an Extranet also allows separate punch lists created by many different parties to be aggregated together into a single coordinated list of items needing attention.
  3. A gateway should be a role filled by one or more persons charged with the responsibility of being the initial processing point of various project transactions. While there may be various persons involved in gateway positions throughout a project, each gateway will serve the function of being a single point through which all transactions are submitted to avoid having transactions delayed or inconsistently processed due to multiple points of entry.
  4. BIM contains building component information such as fire rating, manufacturer, and material. 3-D modeling does not contain such data.
  5. Better coordinated construction documents; reduced total project costs; improved team collaboration; improved tools for owner operations/maintenance; and safer projects.
  6. Keep work flowing so that the crews are always productive installing product; reduce inventory of material and tools; and reduce costs.
