The integration problem has many roots and origins. They key to its current importance is that construction as a form of investment has to compete for funds with other economic activities on the basis of its ability to make a value-adding contribution. At present the ability to add value is being curtailed by poor performance within construction with regard to productivity and quality. The explanation for the poor productivity and quality attainments is widely based but a key issue is the high level of fragmentation.

The new production philosophy in contrast advocates that both lower costs and higher quality are attainable and indeed should both be aimed for in process improvement. That is not to say that the strategic IT planning techniques are irrelevant to CIC but only that they do not show the complete picture. Applying CIC strategically using some of the above models for conversion activity improvements would be beneficial. They may not, however, bring the order of magnitude improvements that the new production philosophy has shown to be possible in other industries, which presumably is at the heart of our goals for integrated construction information.

1989). Yet there is an equally important aspect critical to the success of such IT solutions. Many non-technological or managerial issues need to be considered by companies as they adopt advanced information technologies. We performed a survey of the literature to summarize these non-technological issues, borrowing many of the ideas from the general field of information management, since not much has been written on the subject specifically for the AEC industry. We group the issues into three main categories: planning, organization and development and management.
