Paper Abstract

Smart materials and intelligent devices are promising to revolutionize data collection in civil infrastructure. However, their application has so far been very limited in scope. So far, there is no comprehensive mechanisms to integrate data generated by smart materials and intelligent devices into the overall IT systems of user organizations. This article outlines a framework for reengineering organizations for optimal utilization of smart materials and intelligent devices in the infrastructure development domain. The aim is to integrate data collection and management into the organizational culture. The framework includes three basic modules: assessing current practice, identifying level of deployment, and defining the needed actions.
