Construction management and business management share similarity elements of planning such as, goals, policies, rules and procedures. Nevertheless, they differ in the chart when the standard is the time. Planning for the construction management regard only to the period required to complete a construction project. However, business management planning can be divided into long-term planning and short-term which aims to give a clear picture of business for the future.
There are top 25 works can be done by BIM in Construction Industry and every BIM use has different frequency and benefit. The works done by using BIM in construction industry are as follows:
(“Building Information Modeling”) BIM is digital, meaning it is able to be shared with all people working on the project so that it can be modified where it is needed. Along with being able to share, BIM is capable of showing how much pressure is applied to objects in the buildings. The materials these objects are made of can also be changed very easily with a few taps on a screen or clicks of a mouse. With all this in mind, where is building information technology going? Well, right now, it is going nowhere for a few reasons. People may take courses and tutorials in different programs, but in the end, it is still difficult to see errors. Most errors are able to blend in with the pieces that are in the correct place. The issue is that the computer isn’t aware. Computers are being given commands, they aren’t able to point out what is wrong because they don’t know. Another issue is that everyone working on a project using BIM must know what they are looking at and how to use the tools. Until these issues are resolved, BIM won’t be going into the future improved. (Azhar Salman, “Building Information Modeling (BIM): Benefits, Risks and
B.I.M stands for Building Information Modeling, intelligent model-based process that provides insight to help you plan, design, construct, and mange buildings and infrastructure. B.I.M changes how buildings, infrastructure, and utilities are planned, designed, built, and managed. Autodesk B.I.M solutions help turn information into insight and deliver business value at every step in the process. B.I.M incorporates major elements of estimating, cost and project management. As a result, the B.I.M computer model is a living representation of the actual structure at any given time. B.I.M is more than drawings- it is a date repository for building design, construction, and maintenance information combined in one convenient model to share. The benefits of B.I.M are that there are reduced changes during construction. Reduced conflicts during construction and improved construction. Improved collective understanding of design intent reduces claims, disputes, and conflicts. B.I.M provides the capability to design efficient “Green Buildings.” The future of B.I.M will only make B.I.M better, the Information of B.I.M will be utilized more, designers, constructors and building owners will leverage the information that is right in from of them to add value to the building they are producing. Room and furniture, fixture, and equipment validation between
The government regulations of meeting level: 2 BIM is driven by the need for a system that can oversee everything that happens in a project, and also be seen by everyone involved in it. BIM major success in countries who have already adopted it has created a spark for the UK to take a step forward. But, what is BIM?
Numbers of BIM research documents have been focusing on the advantages of the use of BIM but only a few underlined the importance of embedding BIM at an early stage of teaching the principles of the architectural and construction industry. Thus the direction I took, tend to focus on the importance of embedding BIM principles from the very beginning of teaching construction concepts.
Using BIM Tools The goal of integrating BIM tools into your business process is to improve efficiency, constructability and predictability on your projects. This can be done with a combination of BIM tools that enable collaborating, coordinating and communicating during all phases of development, from design, through preconstruction, construction and operation. The entire project team, including designers, contractors, subcontractors, project management and building management can communicate openly.
The aim of this Literature Review is to gain an understanding of what Building Information Modelling (BIM) is, what SMEs are, establish the importance of BIM, why BIM should be implemented and to explore the key issues associated with the adoption and implementation of BIM by SMEs in a live construction environment.
In recent years there has been an improved development for the need of design management in construction. Effective design management is necessary for a successful project but the clear picture of design management is not understood properly (S Austin, 2002). Design is a very key aspect of construction and with the help of a good team; good sustainable projects can be produced. The need for improvement of design in construction is very necessary. Delivering the project on time, budget and providing a value to construction is needed (S Austin, 2002). However the role of a design manager is poorly noted and does not have a robust path (Newton, n.d.).
BIM data can be used to illustrate the entire building life-cycle, from start to finish. Spaces, systems, products and sequences can be shown in comparative scale to each other. And by signaling conflict detection BIM prevents errors from occurring at the various stages of development/construction. When BIM is utilized during a project, its results in better communication which
The benefits of using BIM in modern construction project management have been well recognized. Eastman et al (2008), for instance, have described the use of BIM for developing models that enable computational based analysis and simulation to be undertaken. Soubra (2008) has discussed the ability of BIM to model “comforts” including thermal, visual, acoustic and air quality. Vaizidou (2007) has highlighted the benefit of BIM’s modelling technique in using the x-y-z axes for representations of time line: project tasks: design outputs in projects. The concept of the x-y-z axes, which will be discussed to a fuller detail later in this paper, is of particular relevance as it illustrates the simple idea of representation of the outcomes from Ecotect applications.
With the rapid change of the world, thought of management, theory and practise keeps on changing. It has been transformed through innovation. Taking into consideration the uncertainty surrounding the construction industry, it is essential paying attention to how people work within an organisation that has set goals that needs to be achieved. To be able to achieve these objectives, it is necessary to understand management relating issues such as culture, motivation, leadership and issues relating like coordinating, planning and controlling. Understanding the way people and organisations work is very vital when it comes to the built environment. As a Quantity Surveyor some of my duties are to deals with people, technical
The future of our industry lies in how best we can integrate and communicate all our work with various stakeholders to manage a project efficiently. This has given rise to an area called construction informatics where a significant amount of research is being done. The area deals with a range of subjects from integration to interoperability and from knowledge mining to strategic management. This area came into existence from two fields. The first was the use of computers to design and carry out time and cost calculations. The other was for computers to categorize and store essential information. Currently, integration, interoperability, innovation along with strategic management of Information and Communication Technologies are the key areas of research of construction informatics (Isikdag 2009).
Because safety planning is done separately from project execution there is a great deal of miscommunication between all parties involved. These issues can be ameliorated through the use of a universal technology system that would allow project executioners and safety planners to communicate using the same terms – the less amount of miscommunication, the greater amount of construction safety. BIM is used because of the ease in which it can provide safety instruction for construction, design, and
