A typical AEC industry project involves many individuals and companies forming a consortium for the duration of a project. These projects are usually unique, very complex and involve many participants from a number of organizations acting collaboratively, and forming Virtual Organisations to enable this collaboration. This document is intended to describe the complete design and implementation of a Grid-enabled Product Supplier Catalogue Database (PSCD) application. As part of the Grid-enabling process, a Security Management Service and a Multiple Database Search Service are developed, as well as specialised metadata, to enable PSCD to more effectively utilise Grid middleware such as Globus and Java CoG toolkits.
