M. Huymajer, D. Operta, A. Mazak-Huemer, C. Huemer: The Tunneling Information Management System – A tool for documenting the tunneling process in NATM projects, Journal Geomechanics and Tunnelling, Volume 15, Issue 3, pages 259-264. Doi: 10.1002/geot.202100064
The documentation of the tunneling process is a crucial task of every tunnel construction project. It provides evidence of the work performed and thus, serves as a basis for invoicing and for several further analyses. Therefore, continuous digitalisation of this documentation is essential. For this purpose, we provide a digital Tunneling Information Management System (TIMS), which is a prototypically implemented software tool for replacing the still common paper-based documentation process of tunneling projects using the New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM). The data model presented here defines the data structures managed by this tool. Based on this, the software architecture and the implementation of TIMS is shown.
