In the decades to come, building production will concentrate in the metropolitan centres of the world due to the migration of the world's population to the major cities. An improvement of the construction process in densely populated inner cities will be the task of the future. This focuses on performance management, construction engineering and construction management. New developments being discussed in this field are new design strategies, human machine technologies, employee safety, progress monitoring, distributed production information and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs).
