Enhancing Planning and Scheduling Program by Using Benefits of BIM-Based Applications

Reza Barati, Aref Charehzehi, Christopher Nigel Preece


2D drawings are commonly being used to present the work process of 3D objects in the construction industry. The engineers require having sufficient knowledge to interpret these drawings for use in various areas of the work especially for providing planning and scheduling programs. In the construction projects, construction managers face many problems such as over budget projects, schedule errors, omission of some activities like safety tasks that originate from poor planning methods. Therefore, the study is going to examine alternative tools for better understanding of real project tasks sequences and procedures. One of the most reliable applications is introduced by the Building Information Modeling approach (BIM) that develops four-dimension model based on a combination of three dimension models with time. The benefits of BIM-based on 4D modeling not only improving the perception of planners and construction teams but also facilitate the procedure of planning and scheduling like automatically clash detection, introduce parallel activity and etc. .This study discusses the development and implementation of this innovative approach in construction planning. The research was carried out based on questionnaire survey within construction companies in Singapore. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistical analysis and been ranked with Average Index method.
