The fifth most important feature has been determined as the PDA must have at least a 64 MB memory. When deciding between a 32MB memory and a 64MB memory I looked at what features both size memory are suited to. A '32MB: Allows smooth use of email applications and office software' and a '64MB: Recommended for surfing the Internet and multimedia functions' (eBay Inc, 2006) A large memory capacity is required because you will have to download software onto your PDA, as you will be using 'software provided by the consortium responsible for the overall management of the construction work' (case study).

My own research with a McNicholas plc, a 'multi-disciplinary company' (mainly site work the same as Greenwich construction PLC), employee I found that often to show what work has been completed photos of the job are taken and sent via PDA's to the site mangers and managers in the offices so everyone can effectively and accurately be kept up to date with progress. I believe this could be important to Greenwich construction when organizing large building projects such as the Olympic Stadium. I have determined Bluetooth capabilities as the next most important feature on a PDA. ...read more.
