Building better solutions to age-old challenges

Dr Sittimont Kanjanabootra is helping to streamline construction processes and practices to save time and money for hard-working manufacturing and building firms in Australia.

Dr Sittimont Kanjanabootra

Construction has been a booming industry in Australia for multiple decades. But when demand and volume increase, communication and data management can buckle under the pressure.

It’s a problem that Dr Sittimont Kanjanabootra has encountered time and time again, first during his mechanical engineering career and now as an internationally esteemed educator and researcher.

“The pace of change and the volume of work in construction are not enabling practitioners to reuse their knowledge and expertise in an effective way, nor adopt newer, more effective solutions,” explains Sittimont.

Sittimont now collaborates with building companies to solve cost-based overrun problems. His solutions facilitate the transfer and use of knowledge with help from innovative technologies, such as big data applications, ontological analysis and knowledge management best practice.

“My research projects address those ‘same old problems’ in the construction industry.

“Problems like design errors, time delays, unsafe material being used, infrastructure project cost overruns and projects being overdue.

“My work is helping to solve these problems by developing industry-useable platforms based in tested and newly emerging technologies. This will change the nature of the industry and impact on the cost-effectiveness of its processes.”

Tackling ongoing stubborn industry problems

Sittimont entered the construction industry many moons ago as a practicing mechanical engineer. In his daily work, he would see common problems that he had no time to solve, but which eventually prompted his first step towards a highly successful research career.

“I began my academic research to address the problems I was seeing. My first project was with a group of engineers in an engineering manufacturing/building firm in Australia that had excessively long periods of time from prototype to market of their products.

“The problem lay in their complex processes and the way that the engineers were working, which did not allow them to capture their own knowledge and then use it in a more meaningful way.”

Sittimont explains that, in this particular case, the solution involved building an engineering knowledge management system.

“The system analysed the data captured, applied Heuristic Process Mining (big data) to their work processes and created a platform that enabled faster product development.”

Sittimont’s work continues to apply this same methodology to a variety of construction problems, working closely with building teams and firms to identify areas for improvement and create technologically driven solutions.

“Applications of innovative new technologies will enable improvement in construction expertise, how it is being developed, used and reused to solve day-to-day construction process problems.”

Removing traditional research blinkers

Sittimont strongly believes that interconnected education and industry problems require interdisciplinary responses. He has worked across a number of interdisciplinary research areas and projects, including as project team leader with international colleagues to develop a platform for Disaster Resilience Education Capacity Building in Latin America.

This project was funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and brought together researchers from the University of Newcastle, Universidad Diego Portales (Chile), Universidad Javeriana (Colombia) and Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Brazil).

“We tend to teach or do research in our area, and often, this creates a narrow view and blocks us from seeing beyond our discipline. We need to learn from each other and keep building our networks.”

Sittimont has also helped develop a platform of capabilities needed to implement Building Information Modelling (BIM) in construction projects, with funding from the Tasmanian Building and Construction Industry Training Board. Another of his projects with University of Newcastle and RMIT colleagues involved developing a simulation-based learning platform for tertiary education.

Across all his work, Sittimont is focused on creating tangible change for both the construction industry and his students.

“The work I’ve completed on shortening production times in the engineering company, and our work on applications of big data, have had, and are having, significant impact. Not only for industry but also for my students who get to see real practice, and real solutions to problems.”

New solutions and real-world impact

Sittimont draws inspiration from international research innovation, particularly in the USA and UK, where he says collaborative construction research currently receives greater interest and funding than in Australia.

“In the UK, there is a specifically funded research initiative for construction as a collaboration of universities, the government and the construction industry, to deliberately find, develop and implement solutions to transform the construction industry.

“This initiative was developed to address the problems already identified there—ones that also exist here in Australia.”

Sittimont is at the forefront of championing this research agenda in Australia, partnering with colleagues here and worldwide to achieve solutions and real-world impact. It’s a charge that continues to excite him, propel him into innovative new research areas and create enormous career satisfaction.

“Research that develops real solutions to known problems in construction is what excites me.

“Construction is an applied practice-based discipline, one where we almost universally adopt new knowledge created by materials scientists and engineers. Being the facilitators of that transfer involves creativity, a lot of thinking and is rewarding.”

© 2018 Elsevier Ltd Vietnam has been extensively impacted by flooding over the years, sustaining heavy losses in human life and damages to housing, agriculture, and transportation. Flood risk in Vietnam is not widely understood beyond a very hazard-focused conceptualization, which often neglects to consider human vulnerability. The objective of this paper is to understand flood risk management (FRM) activities at local levels in Quang Nam province in Vietnam, along with legal and institutional frameworks that are intended to focus, but often restrict, policy and practice. Vietnam's legal and institutional frameworks are analyzed to provide an overview of the scope of existing FRM activities in Vietnam. We then examine the extent to which FRM in Vietnam follows recognized theoretical frameworks, and pinpoint where practice might be strengthened. Based on this positioning, we conduct 27 individual interviews with decision-makers in FRM at provincial, district, and commune levels in Quang Nam province. We argue that FRM activities at local levels in Vietnam are implemented according to the hierarchical structure of the political system and the responsibilities of various paramount government agencies, and that there is a lack of participation of experts, researchers, and scientists in steering committees. There is an urgent need for greater public participation in FRM at local levels. Since communes have a better understanding of their local conditions, empowering them with planning and decision-making power is necessary to improve the effectiveness of FRM activities. Our detailed analysis of FRM activities at local levels has implications for future efforts to mitigate flooding in Vietnam.

© 2016, © Emerald Group Publishing Limited. Purpose ¿ One of the key elements contributing to successful post-disaster project teams is individual competence. Each project participant brings his or her own knowledge, experience and ideas to the collective. The kind of chaotic and fragmented environment that is common in post-disaster scenarios presents specific barriers to the success of projects, which can be mitigated by ensuring that staff members possess competencies appropriate for their deployment to particular contexts. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach ¿ The study utilizes a mixed-methods approach, incorporating unstructured interviews to extract key factors of competence, project barriers and strategy, and a subsequent questionnaire survey, designed to quantify the various elements. Interviews were undertaken and analysed using a cognitive mapping procedure, while survey data were processed using SPSS. The data were then utilized in the development of a software prototype using Design Science Research methodology, capable of modelling the deployment of staff under various disaster scenarios. Findings ¿ Analysis of the survey and cognitive mapping data, in conjunction with relevant established frameworks, has allowed the classification of relevant competency elements. These elements have subsequently been measured and modelled into the competency-based tool and developed into a working prototype. Originality/value ¿ The developed system offers novel disaster competency assessment criteria. The system contains a variety of real-life scenarios derived from extensive data collection. These multi-hazard scenarios are embedded with knowledge and competency valuation criteria that can facilitate actors to assess their team¿s knowledge based on selective scenarios. In disaster response, time is a critical element, and this tool assists decision makers. It can enable disaster response actors to evaluate and assemble the appropriate personnel to deploy into disaster areas and into specific types of disaster environment.

Purpose: This paper aims to propose a framework for the evaluation of artefacts in Design Science and test it using an exemplar case of a knowledge management system (KMS) developed for an Australian refrigeration manufacturing company. Design/methodology/approach: The research uses Design Science research methodology in a specific case study context. The artefact studied was developed using an ontology based on an engineering design conceptualisation and created using an ontology generator, Protégé. Research data for the evaluation of the framework were collected using a combination of document analysis, interviews, shadowing and observations. Findings: The evaluation framework developed for the research and applied to the KMS specifically built for the company was shown to be useful in determining the efficacy and effectiveness of the research outcomes in terms of usefulness to the company engineers in the technical analysis of their work, and for the CEO and COO as part of their strategic planning for the company. The evaluation framework helped the researcher and the engineers as collaborators to demonstrate the extent of improvement in the design and build processes in the company. Originality/value: Prior research in both Information System and Design Science has not provided a specific, generalizable, evaluation framework for system developers to use as a guide during the systems development process. This research proposes an evaluation framework which covers all broad aspects of evaluation and efficacy, accepting that evaluation frameworks must be flexible in enabling changes to accommodate variations in the types and purposes of artefacts developed. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

© 2016 American Society of Civil Engineers. This study experimentally investigated water penetration through semi-interlocking masonry (SIM) walls using a standard test methodology. The main objective of this study was to investigate the water-penetration performance of dry-stacked SIM walls and the effects of using gap-fillers on the testing walls. The performance of a traditional unreinforced masonry wall was used as the benchmark against which the results for SIM walls were compared. This paper reports the water-penetration performance results of several types of SIM walls investigated in this study.

Vietnam is vulnerable to multiple hazards, particularly in the central region. Flood damage statistics show that this part of the country is impacted by both unfavourable terrain, and human interference leading to environmental damage. Such damage is often a result of poorly planned and managed forestry and hydropower plants. This paper examines the key vulnerabilities present in Vietnam while investigating the key problems in the development of hydropower in Vietnam; environmental impacts, design and construction of dams and the operation of dams.
