Computer Technology in the Planning and Management of Educational Buildings: An Overview.
Bousquet, Martine; Lefevre, Bruno
In recent years the use of computers to carry out a range of tasks in the planning and management of educational buildings has proliferated. In June 1988, the Programme on Educational Building arranged a meeting of experts from 13 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries whose objectives were to identify: (1) the extent of computer use in educational property management; (2) the range and nature of different applications; (3) software development trends; and (4) the scope for international cooperation. Since the time of the meeting developments in this field have continued. This report sets out to summarize the state of activity as revealed at the meeting and subsequently. Contents of the report address the scale of the problem; educational, technical, and administrative contexts; computer technology applications for educational buildings; problems and issues; and suggestions for further work.
