Rischmoller, Leonardo, Alarcón, Luis F. and Koskela, Lauri (2006) Improving Value Generation in the Design Process of Industrial Projects Using CAVT. Journal of Management in Engineering, 22 (2). pp. 52-60. ISSN 0742-597XMetadata only available from this repository.
This paper presents research results that describe how value generation can be improved in the design process of industrial projects when using computer advanced visualization tools (CAVT). The CAVT concept definition, prior studies about impacts of CAVT, and why they are not sufficient are presented in the paper, supporting the assertion that the extensive attention to technology instead of to the context of technology application and the lack of a conceptual framework has prevented some prior research about CAVT impacts to truly focus in ideas about how to improve engineering and construction processes. Combining production theory and lean construction principles with information technology (IT), a framework for understanding the impacts of CAVT developed as part of the research is proposed. Illustration of the use of the framework in a case study and research validation activities leads to analytic generalization of the research results.
