A Decision Support System for the Building Permit Review Process

Judith Fauth and Sebastian Seiß

Abstract—Obtaining a building permit is an indispensable factor for a successful construction project. However, from a project management perspective, it is a non-transparent and subjective variable. There is a gap of assistance for the building application review in the building authorities. The approach aims to develop a decision support system for building permit review process from a project management's point of view. For this purpose, the requirements for a decision support system related to the building permit are identified. To convert the theoretical system into a practical solution, a web application is developed. The presented approach thus offers an alternative to automated rule checking. The decision support system makes the building permit process more objective and transparent.

Index Terms—Decision support system, building permit, code compliance checking, process modeling, building application review.
