Using Mobile Computers to Automate the Change Order Decision Making Process and Improve Total Time and Cost Predictions on Highway Construction Projects

Currently the university is working on a mobile computing application for automating the collection process of field inspection data using iPads or Android Tablets. The application contains standard forms of the specifications that appear in the Standard Specification of Road and Bridge Construction book. With these forms the application intends to provide a method of uniform inspection that assures the quality of highway projects. At the same time, the application will be able to automatically send deficiency reports to the parts affected when a certain item doesn't comply with the specification.
