Abstract: The growing power of the BIM toolkit coupled with a burgeoning model knowledge base is creating exciting new opportunities to enhance project execution capabilities.

Aligning the synergies harnessed from the project partners with contractor short interval planning (SIP) and the pull planning processes, coupled with the project master critical path schedule offers a significant venue to enhance coordination and efficiency as well as sharpen time-related forecasting.

Integrating the power of BIM progress tracking with the payment and reporting cycle offers a powerful tool to provide real-time feedback for the team to propel the project forward.

The merger of this project information into an animated progress model facilitates a step change in comprehension for all project stakeholders by leveraging one’s inherent ability to digest rich and multidimensional data via a robust visual simulation. This accelerating paradigm shift will continue to push project boundaries and build an organization’s future skill base.
