Kwon Young-Sang ; Kim Kyung-Rai ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 2, issue 4, 2001, Pages 39~47
Nowadays, the enormous information from each industry has been brought out. According to the advanced information technology, those data have been useful to the point of Cost & Time in the domestic construction industry. Due to the temporary characteristics of construction industry, the various information have only been used just one time and not recycled. There are few studies for the use and management of construction information. Compared with other stages in project life-cycle, the construction stage includes the most important and various information from field. It will be desirable that one should study for developing the use of construction information. With this thesis, this study suggests the conceptual classification model for construction information management.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 2, issue 4, 2001, Pages 48~61
This study aims at improving work reliability. It proposes a way to overcome the limitations of current scheduling methods by providing a new framework, CPAM(Construction Process Analysis Model) based on the lean principles. It suggests methods which improve work reliability and production effectiveness with variability control methods. Also it suggests methods which reduce inventories of materials and equipment and WIP(Work In Process) using two techniques; Lookahead Schedule and Weekly Work Plan. The contribution of this research also includes that it assumes planning as a process of reducing uncertainty and maximizing throughput, counter-posing plan reliability to resource redundancy as alternative strategies for managing in conditions of uncertain work flow.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 2, issue 4, 2001, Pages 69~79
Characteristics of Contactor's Defect Liability was too many discussed. But it's not clearly defined yet. Because recent Government Construction Projects are very complex and executed through long time, too many conflicts were appeared related to Contactor's Defect Liability. Therefore to analyse and to resolve the conflicts legal aspects of Contactor's Defect Liability stated in Civil Law and Government Contract Act was systematically compared. The result of this research is as follows : (1) Characteristic of Contactor's Defect must be regarded as a breach of Contract and be an incomplete contract implementation. (2) To decide the range of Damage, Characteristic of Defect must be regarded. (3) Contactor's Defect Liability must be effectual from the day of delivery. (4) Retainage must be added to secure the completion during the Contract Period and Defect Repairing Liability must be omitted in the Contract performance Security.

Kang Leen-Seok ; Kwak Joong-Min ;
Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 2, issue 4, 2001, Pages 80~91
Considering that the classified items in the work section level can have an applicability when those items are being used to cost and specification information with consistency, the work section classification code should be applied as an Integrated code system. Our construction industry is using three work section classification systems for civil engineering projects, such as integrated construction information classification system, standard method of measurement and guide of project specification. And each standard construction specification is also using different work section classification systems. This study suggests a methodology to integrate the code systems in construction specifications with civil engineering standard method of measurement. And the methodology suggested in this study was applied to a web-based prototype system with practical specification codes.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 2, issue 4, 2001, Pages 92~97
The level of awareness and actual implementation of integration and computerization in the construction industry is growing. However, it is not clear at this point how to assess the extent of their impact and to identify in which ways they better support the construction projects related to their success. The objectives of this research are the development of a model to evaluate the impact of integration and computerization on construction projects and the recommendation of guidelines for companies in identifying suitable ways for them to incorporate integration and computerization Into their operation. The developed conceptual model has been found robust enough to be used as a benchmarking tool in evaluating the performance of the construction process and to strategize its future operation.

Korean Journal of Construction Engineering and Management, volume 2, issue 4, 2001, Pages 99~106
Construction workers occupies only
of the entire industry, but the
of the critical accidents in whole industry occurs in construction industry. Since there are many dangerous process and lack of safety information measures in the construction industry, both short and long term operation in education, training, and information are necessary. Examples for existing accidents in construction sites will be very useful for preventing accidents. And if the research for individual accidents perfectly achieved, it will give valuable information to construction sites which will be very useful for preventing accidents. The object of this study is to develop construction safety information system to give safety information to construction process by work field. The data base are made from 860 major accidents mostly in buildings and apartments in year 1999 through 2000(KOSHA).

As the international trade has been increased, unified worldwide standards are getting more important and necessary. At the TBT(Agreement on Technical Barrier to Trade) of WTO(World Trade Organization) and the CTI meeting of APEC(Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation), they made an agreement with applying International Standards to National Standards gradually. In addition, ISO (International Organization for Standardization) established the ISO/IEC Guide 21, a guideline for applying International Standards to National Standards. In these environment, Korean Industrial Standards has to be prepared for it. This paper introduce the comparison between Korean Industrial Standards and ISO Standards about the standards of sampling and testing the fresh concrete, based on ISO/IEC Guide 21 by ISO and the Applying guideline by Korean Agency for Technology and Standards, and then discuss the problem about applying them. The overall objective is to establish the applying guideline on construction fields, which is civil and building engineering part(KS F) of Korean Industrial Standards.
