A Feasibility Study of a Computer-Based Manpower Information System for the Construction Industry.
Markowitz, Edward A.; And Others
The result of a Presidential directive, this study was conducted to determine the feasibility and means for implementing a computer-assisted labor market information system designed to improve information flow in and about the construction industry. Data were collected by means of: (1) extensive research reviews, (2) contact with selected construction personnel, and (3) direct observation of the information flow in several construction centers. Findings revealed that a computer-based system is feasible, but the successful implementation of such a system depends heavily on meeting a number of design and human criteria. (Author/SN)
