Scope and Internals
The WAND Building and Construction Management Taxonomy covers all the major topics and concepts of the construction industry. It includes over 3,200 terms and more than 700 synonyms related to concepts, equipment, processes, and document types that are important for any building and construction project. The WAND Building and Construction Management Taxonomy also includes a rich set of topics on materials, equipment, and supplies taken from the WAND Product and Service Taxonomy.
Customization and Extension
The WAND Building and Construction Management Taxonomy can be easily customized by personalizing the thesaurus with complementary lexicons. It can also be exploited in combination with the TEMIS Smart Taxonomy Facilitator (STF) Skill Cartridge® Framework to create a Skill Cartridge® focused on Building and Construction Management topics.
STF adds two distinctive features to the thesaurus-based extraction:
- Fuzzy Term Matching that produces and recognizes variants of thesaurus terms, minimizing silence and increasing recall
- Relevance Scoring, that evaluates the contextual relevance of each recognized term, discarding the less relevant ones improving precision. Relevance Scoring exploits a range of heuristics, including statistics and part-of-speech tagging.
Adjusting STF Fuzzy-Term Matching and Relevance Scoring parameters or retraining the Skill Cartridge®'s statistical models to adapt to a corpus that is specifically representative of your content will enable you to adjust semantic enrichment behavior.
The WAND Building and Construction Management Taxonomy is ideal for any construction business that wants to tag and organize project documents more effectively.
