Preserving and searching documents is a difficult job in A/E/C industry because there are numerous documents in miscellaneous formats in each construction project. Yet there is always a need in managing these documents for different purposes.
Therefore it is critical to use some techniques, especially information technology (IT), to solve problems in document searching, browsing and archiving. Sinotech developed a unique practice in document handling for knowledge management (KM) and some KM-related applications for internal use.
A KM system is built up through in-house R & D with functions including full-text searching, document archiving, and knowledge classifications. Engineers in Sinotech can access this rich knowledge base from every corner around the world.
