Introduction:The traditional working of the construction industry is getting transformed with the use ofnew tools and technologies. The construction industry focuses on completing the projectwithin allocated time and budget and delivered the high quality outcome to the stakeholders.“The construction industry works as a separate entity to know the requirement of thecustomers and other stakeholders” (Liu, 2010). The use of building information managementtools helps in maintaining connection between the different participating units. Theinformation can easily retrieve at the faster rate. The diagram below shows the difference inactivities performed in the traditional environment and in the BIM environment.The BIM technology is capable of managing numerous resources with high efficiency in thedesigning, fabrication, construction, and operational activities. The purpose of this paper is tofocus on the multi-disciplinary use of building information management in constructionactivities and what are the benefits and challenges which are faced in deploying BIM tools.“The BIM is the virtual representation of the structure which is going to be developed bydeploying the flow of construction activities according to the mentioned plan” (Yang, 2013).The building information management specifies the essential requirement, process,procedure, structure, and standards. The management practices give emphasis on the datadefinition which gives the clear idea about the information interchange. These tools help inoptimizing the workflows and dependability of information. The visual concept of buildinginformation modelling is shown in the figure below:
“The 35% of the nation economy depends on the construction activities. The GDP of thenation can be improved with the free flow of construction activities” (Ku, 2013). Thetraditional working of the construction activities is equipped with many problems such asincreasing spiralling cost, increasing demand, fragmentation issues, and others. The lack ofcoordination and collaboration is the major problem with the team members of constructionforum. The use of knowledge management helps in improving the performance of theconstruction activities. “The strategies should be built to improve the coordination betweensupply chain management program to get the effectiveness in the working forum of theconstruction activities” (Onyango, 2016). The framework of knowledge management can bedeveloped with the use of BIM to enhance the repositories of knowledge to maintain goodand healthy relationship between team members and customers. The knowledge intensiveactivities are laid down to enhance the work flow of construction to complete the projectwithin the prescribed time and budget. “The activities help in improving the level ofsatisfaction in the end user. The innovation, rules, procedures, standards, and policies can bedeveloped by maintaining the knowledge management program” (Merschbrock, 2012). Theperformance of the construction activities can be improved by using the BIM tools in theprocess of construction. The 3 Dimensional models can be developed by making use of BIMtools which helps in providing the clear portrait of the final outcome of the constructionactivities. The virtual model helps in analysing that the expected outcome is capable ofsatisfying the requirement or not. The collaboration of construction activities, engineeringtools and architecture changes the scenario of development process.
