Abstract: An inside look at how building information modeling (BIM) technology can help visualize project success on the world’s largest projects. Through revolutionary technology, owners and contractors can envision project success from design to construction, while project managers can aggregate model data and quickly react to changes in real time. As an exploration of the benefits of BIM technology, this paper dives into maximized project performance through alleviating impacts caused by sudden schedule and design changes. It also looks at better-tracked progress and managed assets through linking project data to BIM. Lastly, all of this is tied together through a single visual model where any project dimension can be accessed. Large capital project requirements are changing — leverage BIM to stay ahead of the curve.
