Mobile IT used in construction: A case for scaffolding safety management
- 建筑土木－会议论文 
Mobile technology, by its nimble characteristic, adapted to the needs of the construction site management and has a broad prospect in the construction industry. In this paper, the framework for the implementation of mobile IT for Scaffolding Safety Management is designed, which comprises a logic model and a physical model. The logic model analyzes the scaffolding safety management process. The physical model shows system designers a clear structure for designing mobile for scaffolding safety management, which includes six ostensive factors and a hidden factor. A case study is carried out in a mobile IT system for scaffolding safety management. On the basis of the logic model and physical model, this paper: (1) identifies scaffold environment, safety managers and information; (2) chooses the sensor, wireless networks and mobile devices; and (3) designs a mobile IT application for the case. ? 2013 American Society of Civil Engineers.
