Abstract [sv]

Use of computer based construction plan programs were introduced as early as in the 1970’s and have since then been under constant develop. Their functions and durability have during the last twenty years gone from only being used in the projection and office stage to being a useful tool at the actual construction site too.

This report is a status analysis regarding what thoughts and perspectives younger and newly added generation of construction foremen have on the use, implementation and development of digital tools in the Swedish construction business, and the potential information exchange at the construction sites.

The report is a compilation of interviews with respondents representing four different established Swedish construction companies. The results of the interviews are compared with available literature, which are results of previous research and pilot projects that have been done the subject.

It also contains a view of how the communication transpire when problems occur on construction plans and how this is managed by the construction foreman. The approach is currently depending on the nature and significance of the problem, and also how far the companies have come in the development and the commitment from their employees.

The results show that digital tools and the possibility of efficient information technology is available, but the use of these are less frequent than the respondents expected in their role as a construction foremen.The implement, use of modern working methods and the obtaining of digital tools are for example depending on economic and function barriers. The construction business is also currently in a generation change which bring a younger generation in to the business which have more experience of using information technology and digital tools, that have created a difference to the earlier generations, both in use an knowledge.
