Accurate and timely identification and tracking of
construction components are critical to operating a
well-managed and cost efficient construction project.
Establishing standards to support identification and
tracking technologies has the potential to enable the
construction industry to seamlessly integrate work
processes at the job-site. This paper discusses on-going
research at NIST in the application of field sensors,
portable computers, real-time high-precision global
positioning, wireless communications, and construction
project databases, to develop means for real-time
component identification and tracking.
