Issue No. 04 - October-December (2002 vol. 9)
<p>Computer programs for building design, analysis, and maintenance typically can?t exchange data directly, even when the same team uses them. Buildings therefore take longer to design and build and cost more to construct and operate. Information sharing should be the starting point in applying information technology to building design, construction, and use.</p>
