Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2007
e-Builder, a leading provider of web-based Construction Project Management and Collaboration Software today announced a series of educational webinars focused on the use of emerging technologies to improve the delivery of capital projects. The series kicks off May 1, 2007 with the Use of Project Specific Websites to Manage Construction Project Delivery webcast, at 12:00 noon EST. Registration is free and is available online at https://www.gotomeeting.com/register/932744367. This educational series will be presented by Robert Cox, Ph.D., Department Head and Professor of Building Construction Management at Purdue University.
Dr. Cox has taught construction management courses in estimating, cost analysis, planning and scheduling, productivity improvement, and construction project simulation in his previous positions as Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Programs for the M. E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Construction at the University of Florida, and as an instructor at Virginia Tech.
Because of the highly complex, fast paced and dynamic nature of the construction process, increased demands on all parties key to the building process place construction at a critical point in addressing the communication problems plaguing the industry. One way to address this situation is via a Project Specific Web Site. Attendees will learn about the latest technologies used to establish PSWS, and how these help users leverage the power of the Internet to efficiently obtain critical project information to make effective decisions.
Dr. Cox will be joined by a distinguished panel representing different industry disciplines, including:
Mark Bridgers, Consultant, FMI Management Consulting and Investment Banking (http://www.fminet.com)
