The Construction industry in Australia and most part of the developed world is undergoing an evolution due to globalisation, increased competition, and pressure to improve productivity, demand for better project performance and pressure to deliver profit to stakeholders. This research proposes to develop a Knowledge Based Decision Support System (KBDSS) using lessons learned from project non-conformances as a basis for improving the efficiency of construction companies whilst also improving their competitiveness in the construction market.
