Objectives: The construction industry is trying to adopt the rapidly improved information and telecommunication technology. The construction manager should coordinate each construction operation toward the maximization of the productivity. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The systematic management in site is critical for the prevention of the potential interference between various processes, which results in more efficient schedule management of construction projects. This study examines the utilization of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) as one of mobile devices for the enhancing the level of construction management. It applies the PDA-based system to the building construction projects and presents the benefit in the productivity of PDA-based system. Findings: The study intends to offer the system that could be helped construction engineers to set a reasonable PDA-based system in building construction project through the minimization of waiting time for more efficient schedule management. Furthermore, based on an assessment in productivity, it was found that the PDA-based system is more reasonable than the existed system owing to the advantages of the PDA-based system, such as reduced reworking, faster response to changes. Improvements/Applications: The proposed PDA-based system should be estimated in the productivity of PDA-based system using the computer simulation methodology which can provide quantitative number in productivity.
