|Abstract: ||Properly managing client requirements information can contribute to high construction
productivity and improve the quality of built facilities. This paper presents an innovative
framework which defines a life-cycle approach to managing client requirements information.
The Enterprise Requirements Information Management Framework (eRIM) introduces an
approach to managing client requirements throughout a project lifecycle. It defines an
information-centric and process-oriented approach to requirements management and
describes how Information Technology (IT) / Information Systems (IS) can serve as support
tool. It supports life-cycle requirements information availability, facilitates coordination,
enables visibility, traceability and dependency checking which is crucial for analysing the
impact of proposed changes in requirements. The paper includes findings from three case
studies of construction projects through observations of meetings and interviews with
selected construction practitioners. The results indicate that implementation and
incorporation of the framework in construction projects could contribute towards improved
performance and more efficient and effective client requirements management.|
