Issues in implementing a Virtual Environment based Design Review System

Shiratuddin, M.F. and Thabet, W. (2003) Issues in implementing a Virtual Environment based Design Review System. In: Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality (CONVR 2003), 24 - 26 September, Virginia



Project design review involves many tasks and is used by the project team as a means to detect and identify discrepancies, errors and inconsistencies in designs. Through interviews and common literatures, we established that the current approaches used are based heavily dependant on 2D paper based drawings and utilizes some form of a checklist to guide the review process. The ability to perform such tasks using a VE-based approach can greatly improve the review process by allowing visualization and modification of 3D representation of the design while providing flexibility for the review team to meet virtually from any remote location. Various implementation issues need to be considered before a VE based design review system can be fully implemented awl usable. This research-in-progress investigates several implementation issues: design review process issues, end-user related issues, hardware and software issues, information management issues and collaboration and participation issues.
