Advances in computer and software abilities are continuously creating an increased number of applications that are beneficial to the construction industry. In the highway sector, computers have become an integral part of design and construction as well as communications among project participants. This report presents two example database applications that may be used to accommodate the constructability program for Wisconsin Department of Transportation: (1) lessons-learned database and (2) constructability rating database. In addition to discussing these database structures, the report presents example computer screens created for developed prototype applications. Data entered to demonstrate the lessons-learned database are also provided as an appendix. More discussion of the database structures as well as the context in which they may be used is provided in Technical Report 115 (WI-SPR-05-94) which discusses steps and tools to implement constructability on highway projects. The applications described in this report demonstrate that the database structures discussed in Technical Report 115 are feasible as well as useful and efficient. Both applications have great potential for improving the execution of highway projects by providing information to those performing planning, design, construction, and operation and maintenance.
