Reformulated research questions

After the three analysis chapters it is now possible to reformulate the initial research questions into a more elaborate form:

  1. How can state-of-the-art web technology possibly help to realise new, dynamic BC processes that adequately serve the Client's needs (provide value for money) and, at the same time, serve the needs of the construction companies (provide money for value)?
  2. How to use the NG Internet to provide both parties (and their application software) with the precise and Semantically rich on-line BC object definitions?
  3. How can software vendors take advantage of such a development?
  4. What is the possible role of traditional Specifications in newly innovated BC construction processes?

In the end, the desired end result is a marketplace-developed de facto standard for information and a marketplace-developed, generally available and generally affordable instrumentation for dynamic BC.
