• Currently available construction management software has serious limitations that hinder further integration and automation of construction management tasks. The main limitation is the low level at which project information and knowledge is represented. This means that integration of design and construction planning information and automated reasoning about, for example, planning, are difficult to implement. In two research projects at the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering at Stanford University, we are addressing these limitations. In the SPACECAKE project we propose a higher level representation of project information that explicitly represents the relations between products, activities, construction methods and resources. A prototype system shows that it is possible to implement our conceptual model and support project management decisions. In the MOCA project we elaborate further on the representation of construction method knowledge. In this paper we propose a template to make the knowledge explicit and computer-interpretable. ()
