Abstract

Adopters of BIM need to find the most appropriate implementation strategy that is economically efficient for their organization in order to achieve satisfactory organizational and project outcomes. This paper explores why and how the distribution of effort spent on various project activities over a project's life cycle can be used at both project and organizational levels as one of the metrics for evaluating, benchmarking and improving the performance of BIM implementation process. Using a case study, it explores how project time accounting data can be used to visualize and analyze effort distribution pattern. The findings shows the benefit of BIM effort distribution. Based on the visualizat..
