CASE STUDY ON DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION ENTERPRISES

Hui Xu

Abstract

Due to the specificities in industry status, company characteristics and trends in development, the transportation industry needs information management systems more than any other industries and benefits most from such systems as well. However, in certain parts of China, management level and technological expertise fall behind the state of art. Therefore multiple problems rise in this field, including obstinately high cost, delayed information transfer, backward construction methods and wasting construction management. In order to propose effective solutions to the above problems, a case study is committed on the information management system construction of a highway construction enterprise in north-western China. This paper presents the case study from five aspects, including cost control, project management, human resources, financial management as well as office automation. Through longitudinal study of the Enterprise’s requirements derived from business management, rapid development and specificities of the field, key technologies as well as solutions has been proposed in the enterprise informatization process to utilize the core competitive power of the company, providing valuable references for similar enterprises.
