e-Builder, the leading provider of web-based Construction Project Management and Collaboration Software, today announced an educational webcast to discuss The Impact of Collaborative Technology on Capital Project Management, August 28th 2007, at 12:00 p.m. EDT. This is the third in a series of educational webcasts led by Dr. Robert Cox, Ph.D., Department Head and Professor of Building Construction Management at Purdue University.

Construction project management and collaboration sites have been around since 1995, when e-Builder developed the first project-specific website. Since then, adoption by companies managing complex project portfolios has slowly increased, partly as a result of measurable improvements in efficiency and profitability linked to the use of these platforms. This webinar will use specific examples to illustrate the impact that collaborative technology is having on the delivery of capital projects.
The discussion will be led by Dr. Robert Cox, who 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. Dr. Cox will provide a comprehensive overview of collaborative project management platforms, discuss how they are used by the different teams involved in the planning and execution of capital projects, and the benefits these platforms have provided.
