The paper represents a framework that can be followed while adopting Exchange Information Requirements for metro projects in Turkey. In contrast to the universal trend of implementing Building Information Model initially to superstructure projects, Turkey brought an obligation of BIM use for the first time in a metro project. Since 2014, metro projects tendered in Turkey, primarily in İstanbul, are BIM-mandated public projects. However, Employers have not yet developed organization-wide holistic standards to ensure delivered project will qualify their expectations. EIR define the requirements of the Employer regarding the content, delivery, and management of project related information including the roles and responsibilities of involved parties, applicable standards and milestones along the project lifecycle. It should clarify technical, commercial, and managerial aspects at different phases of a project. As each stakeholder is expected to be in full compliance with the document, EIR is fundamental for an Employer to ensure an efficient utilization of BIM methodology in accordance with a defined international BIM Standard, such as ISO19650. This paper aims to describe the aspects that should be included in EIR of metro projects in Turkey by analyzing similar EIR implementations around the world within the scope of international BIM Standard ISO 19650.

The Evaluation of construction projects realized with public private partnership model in Turkey
Ürel, Osman Can; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Public–private partnerships (PPPs) are increasingly used in the public facilities and services provision with the growing economic development experienced in Turkey. However, there is an urge for more and better workable and efficient improved practices in future PPP projects. This research considers six types of common public projects in Turkey that are often delivered by the PPP method, including highway, airport, harbor & marina, custom facility & custom gate, industrial facility & urban infrastructure a...
A framework for sentiment analysis in Turkish application to polarity detection of movie reviews in Turkish
Vural, Gural; Cambazoglu, Barla; Tokgoz, Özge Zehra; Karagöz, Pınar (null; 2012-10-28)
In this work, we present a framework for unsupervised sentiment analysis in Turkish text documents. As part of our framework, we customize the SentiStrength sentiment analysis library by translating its lexicon to Turkish. We apply our framework to the problem of classifying the polarity of movie reviews. For performance evaluation, we use a large corpus of Turkish movie reviews obtained from a popular Turkish social media site. Although our framework is unsupervised, it is demonstrated to achieve a fairly ...
Creating smart construction contracts structure with the help of building information modelling
Erkenek, Avo Baran; Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2022-8-29)
The number of countries where BIM is mandatory to be used in projects is increasing day by day because of its data intensive structure. In addition to improving coordination and collaboration in the projects, BIM helps the stakeholders to visualize the project and make more accurate estimations at the preconstruction stage. In the process, some of the problems previously encountered are solved by adapting BIM system into the project but there are still many problems to be solved by using other technologies ...
An inquiry for local open government data policy: Is a proactive model of open government data portals possible in Turkey?
Karkın, Naci; Yavuz, Nilay (Nova Science Publishers, 2017-01-01)
This chapter describes and evaluates the current status of open government data policy and its applications in Turkey. The chapter has the purpose of defining and discussing the circumstances under which the concepts of open government data and open government data portal are operationalized in Turkish context. These circumstances are analyzed by a detailed inspection of a unique local open government data portal in Sahinbey Municipality of Gaziantep province in Turkey, which constitutes the first and only ...
A method for decentralized business process modeling
Türetken, Oktay; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2007)
This thesis study proposes a method for organizations to perform business process modeling in a decentralized and concurrent manner. The Plural method is based on the idea that organizations’ processes can be modeled by individuals actually performing the processes. Instead of having a central and devoted group of people to understand, analyze, model and improve processes, individuals are held responsible to model and improve their own processes concurrently. These individual models are then integrated to f...
