Engineering projects are highly complex, involving many project actors as they produce thousands of files, emails and prototypes. The premise of this work is that in these complex project ecosystems there is a high amount of implied information, particularly in the digital files produced by each actor, which has potential to be automatically extracted and used to improve process or output. This work presents a framework by which files can be categorised and analysed, thereby generating useful project information directly from the actions of project actors; and gives two real-data examples.
