dc.description.abstractAs an effective tool in meeting the increasing demands for value enhancement,value management (VM) has been widely used in many developed countries for several decades. However, a recent survey suggested that VM users encounter the problems of lack of active participation and insufficient time and information in decision analysis. As there is a strong demand for improvements to the practice of Value Management (VM) and a wide use of the Internet, research has been conducted to design a web-based GDSS (Group Decision Support System) system and explore its application in VM studies and get the effect of the application. A GDSS is an interactive computer-based information system which combines the capabilities of communication technologies, database technologies, computer technologies, and decision technologies to support the identification, analysis, formulation, evaluation, and solution of semi-structured or unstructured problems by a group in a user-friendly computing environment. This paper introduces a research project which is sponsored by Research Grant Council (RGC) of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The project aims to investigate the extent to which the use of GDSS can improve effectiveness and efficiency in the processes and outcomes of VM studies in construction projects. Research background and methods are introduced in this paper, and preliminary findings are presented. Finally, directions of future studies are discussed.en_US
