More and more, microcomputers are being used both on and off-site to track schedules, costs, and project sequences in the construction industry. Now, for the first time, the construction manager, inspector, and engineer have a practical guide to help them select the correct hardware and software for specific applications. From deciding whether to computerize a job site, to evaluating the current state of the art in hardware technology, to demonstrating job-related software applications, the book takes the guesswork out of using a microcomputer in construction projects. It also gives practical guidelines for setting up a computer on site, explores security concerns and information protection techniques, and advises on how to protect computers from harsh field conditions. Whether new to computers or more experienced, all construction professionals will find useful tips and techniques for maximizing their microcomputer operation.
