Abstract

Diverse approaches were presented during the workshop for addressing the interoperability challenge in the domain of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC). Additionally, multiple contexts were presented in which linked data and semantic web technologies could generate an important added value to experts in the AEC domain. However, also in these contexts, the eventually targeted functionality significantly relies on the extent to which the interoperability challenge is really addressed and information becomes shareable among information systems in the design and construction process. In this concluding article, we outline our conclusions regarding the extent to which semantic web technologies can address the interoperability challenge, and how information management in such a context might be realised in practice. Finally, we give an initial outline of some anticipated use cases in the building lifecycle in which the usage of semantic web technologies may generate considerable advantages over existing technologies and methods.
