Abstract
Calls for the digital transformation of the construction sector in part revolve around a need for productivity improvements, with a focus upon project time and cost enhancements. The purpose of this work is to provide a state-of-the-art analysis of design management (DM) usually employed to oversee design quality by coordinating design information, typically on behalf of a construction contractor. DM methods, activities, and processes with respect to the potential and underutilisation of building information modelling (BIM) are discussed. A synthesis of recent research efforts is provided identifying further emerging, disruptive, but underutilised digital tools and technologies, which when integrated with BIM, are capable of supporting DM processes. This chapter will aid practitioners and researchers in the design, implementation, and management of digital tools, and provide greater support to the DM function on modern construction projects. It will also be of use to students for a grounding in BIM and BIM-related technologies.

Trust is a particular level of one’s subjective probability that another’s action would be favorable to oneself from the psychological viewpoint (Gambetta, 1988),. Gambetta states that “trust (or symmetrically distrust) is a particular level of subjective probability with which an agent will perform a particular action, both before the trustor can monitor such action (or independently of his capacity of ever to be able to monitor it) and in a context in which it affects its own action” (p.217).

Trusted Cloud- and Femtocell-Based Biometric Authentication for Mobile Networks
Trust refers to reliability on some person or some system. In computer science, any system is said to be trusted when it behaves the way the user expects it to do. It can be defined as the success rate of any computing system. Mathematically, trust is a probabilistic value which lies between 0 and 1. Trust is a complex concept which has no universally accepted scholarly definition. Evidence from a contemporary, cross-disciplinary collection of scholarly writing suggests that a widely held definition of trust is as follows: “Trust is a psychological state comprising the intention to accept vulnerability based upon positive expectations of the intentions or behaviour of another.” Trust is a broader notion than security as it includes subjective criteria and experience. Correspondingly, there exist both hard (security-oriented) and soft trust (i. e. non-security oriented trust) solutions. “Hard” trust involves aspects like authenticity, encryption, and security in transactions. The “soft” trust involves human psychology, brand loyalty, and userfriendliness. Some soft issues are involved in security, nevertheless. When trust is related to cloud computing, it is classified as persistent and dynamic trust to distinguish between social and technological means. Persistent trust referes to trust involving long-term underlying properties or infrastructure and this arises through relatively static social and technological mechanisms. Dynamic trust refers to trust specific to certain states, contexts, or short-term or variable information; this can arise through context-based social and technological mechanisms. Persistent social-based trust in a hardware or software component or system is an expression of confidence in technological-based trust, because it is assurance about implementation and operation of that component or system. In particular, there are links between social-based trust and technological-based trust through the vouching mechanism, because it is important to know who is vouching for something as well as what they are vouching; hence social-based trust should always be considered.

Cultural Differences in Managing Cloud Computing Service Level Agreements
The term trust in this work is defined as a “social institution that enables the involved parties to reduce the complexities of their relationship”. Thereby trust consists of two components: trusting behaviour and trusting expectation. In general, trusting behaviour stands for actions, which lead to increased vulnerability of oneself to another; whose behaviour is not under one’s control. This trust must be instilled despite the possible detriment one might receive if the other abuses that vulnerability. This risk may outweigh the possible benefits if the partner behaves in a non-opportunistic way (Zand, 1972, p. 230). In our economical context the trusting action represents the voluntary delivery of risky advance performances by the provider, without gaining full information about the business partner and abstaining from explicit contractual security and controlling measures. Trusting expectation means that the party receiving this trust is expected to act in an honest way. In other words, the party providing the advance performances expects its contracting party to not exhibit opportunistic behaviour (Ripperger, 1998, p. 60).

Surveying Trust in Virtual Organizations
Trust can be viewed as a cognitive and social device able to reduce complexity, enabling people to cope with the different levels of uncertainty and sometimes the risks that, at different degrees, permeate our life. Without trust an individual would freeze in uncertainty and indecision when faced with the impossibility of calculate all possible outcomes of a situation. From a social perspective trust permits the necessary knowledge sharing of delegation and cooperative actions (Luhman, 1979).

The lack of physical interaction places a higher regard on the trust that exists between each entity involved in the organization. Since fewer “checks and balances” can be placed on appropriate departments, management and other entities trust that they will complete the appropriate work on time or be straightforward about delays or problems. If two entities working on a project together separated by thousands of miles are unwilling to trust each other, the work slows and suffers to a critical point.
