Project description

Managing the process of permits needs to be streamlined. The EU-funded DigiChecks project will build a solution to provide flexibility, ease-of-use and efficiency to the permit validation and approval system in construction project environments. The project will implement the following steps: the first is the creation of a standardised permit ontology comprising a shared language for permits. Next is a digitising permit process tool based on object management group standards, on which several different actors can model their processes. The third step involves the creation of building permit rules, which allow permit authorities to establish rules used as a base for an automated compliance checker. The last step is the integration of the previous steps into a permit service offered through an open application programming interface.
