Abstract

The briefing process is critical to the successful delivery of construction projects. Function performance specification (FPS) is one of value management (VM) techniques developed for the explicit statement of optimum product definition. This technique is widely used in software engineering and manufacturing industry and proved to be successful to perform product defining tasks. This paper describes FPS-oriented approach for construction briefing. Three techniques, i.e. function analysis system technique, shared space, and computer-aided toolkit, are integrated into the proposed approach. A computer-aided toolkit is developed to facilitate the implementation of FPS in the briefing processes. This paper starts with briefing problem analysis and paper goal formulation, followed by the approach design and implementation. This approach can facilitate systematic, efficient identification, clarification and representation of client requirements in trail running. The limitations of the approach and fixture research work are also discussed at the end of the paper.
