BIM in 5D
BIM in 5D
I am currently studying for my master's degree in Construction and Real Estate Management at Metropolia University of Applied Science, Helsinki. I have worked as a Senior Engineer for 35months in L&T Construction in New Delhi, India. As an engineer, I realized that most of the activities at my site were unplanned. Hindrances include delay in decisions, rework due to quality issues, waiting for approval of vendors and suppliers, approval of drawings from the consultant and most importantly, clash of resources within the teams. These resulted in work stress, cost overrun and failure to achieve planned targets.
I have not been exposed to BIM during my past work experience. Through BIM, I am interested in developing effective means to minimize delays, non-value adding activities, risks, and cost overruns, ultimately increasing the productivity of a construction project.
I have read a few papers on BIM in 5D, but mostly they are case studies on the problems a company faces during the implementation. Could you please give me some leads on how I can proceed ahead?
