As general aim of the New Working Methods area is to promote and facilitate the application of the latest Information and Communication Technologies in the Construction sector. This means providing integral solutions based on interoperability criteria in order to improve productivity rates in the sector and will involve each and every partner related to the life cycle of construction processes: constructors, property developers, material manufacturers, software developers, laboratories, etc, even the Administration.
DEVELOPING STANDARDS (DATA EXCHANGE, INTERNET,….)
In the construction sector there are a series of standards and data models in a constant state of evolution and development. Solutions based on standards favour reuse and integration of project results, both internally (AIDICO) and with third parties (such as development work based on the IFC standards that might be of interest to other European or International bodies.
MOBILE AND WIRELESS COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES (GPRS, UMTS, WIRELESS, …)
Over the last few years, there has been a great shift in communication systems towards mobile technology applications affecting both society in general and industry. The state of art for mobile Technologies currently lies in GPRS systems and the soon-to-arrive UMTS and in wireless technologies in Wi-Fi networks. The construction sector is a potential user of communication technologies. Certain characteristics that are peculiar to the construction sector are the geographical relocation of building work, mobility and varying working teams, etc. Communication Technologies are becoming a powerful tool that is present in many of the applications which are the aim of R&D projects in this Area of Knowledge.
INTERNET TECHNOLOGIES (WEB SERVICES, P2P, ASP, .NET, …)
Over recent years Internet has undergone a new revolution with the emergence of new technologies, and mainly new services and web tools: third generation Internet. Web Services, Peer to Peer, Intelligent Agents, etc...In Aidico we select the most appropriate solution for each problem.
This area will not carry out any activity that could lead to a conflict of interests with the Institute’s work as a Control Body, with regard to the products assessed, in accordance with ENAC requirements laid out in PE-ENAC-OC/01.
