  • Abstract:

    The resolution of contractual disputes is an area within the construction industry where complex rules and regulations are apparent and where much human expertise is currently employed monitoring and settling disputes. This paper describes research aimed at developing an expert system for the resolution of extension of time disputes arising under a UK standard form of building contract, JCT 80. The paper outlines the potential benefits of such a system, identifies how the system was developed and describes the working system and its limitations.
