Abstract

The construction industry traditionally uses two dimensional visualisation techniques to analyse project progress. This usually takes the form of an ës-curveí, commonly generated by one of three performance measurement systems: earned value analysis, completion analysis or performance trend indices. Analysing project progress in this manner only provides ësingle viewí analysis of data trends. Deeper interpretation of a project might require studying many individual s-curves. Indicative patterns can go unrecognised in a mass of unfiltered data. This research delivers a conceptual, three-dimensional framework for the interpretation of non-physical construction industry processes. Procession is an information visualisation software tool based on this conceptual framework. It delivers a more comprehensive representation of project progress, as a three-dimensional data surface. Data is either exported from Microsoft Project or from a single project database environment, utilising STEP (Standard for The Exchange of Product model data). Procession is targeted at social housing project clients, providing an ëat-a-glanceí indication of project ëhealthí.
