This research is an empirical evaluation of the role that execution planning has in maximizing the value gained from various uses of Building Information Modeling (BIM). Upon completion, this research will provide the industry with our first focused look at the effectiveness of BIM execution planning. The results will inform decisions regarding BIM implementation and support the “BIM Done Right” initiative, which sees an integrated BIM process as a catalyst for delivering greater value to the owner.
This research project is being done in conjunction with RGA #08-17 at Penn State.
