Discuss the importance of using computer model simulation in the development and management of projects using building information modelling (BIM).
Relevance / originality
This technical report discusses the significance of using building information modelling (BIM) in project management as a tool to enhance cost reduction based on the simulation of computational models.
Methodology / approach
Case study of a software solution that makes its product libraries available in BIM format, intended for the simulation of computational models of a multinational company. Data were collected through document analysis and interviews with specialists from the Siemens company.
The findings show that the simulation of computational models contributes to decision-making in civil construction, whether in the design of new buildings or modernization processes.
Theoretical / methodological contributions
The contribution of this work is strengthened by presenting a benefits proposal for the use of computational modelling in the context of civil construction using good design practises.
Social / management contributions
Better understanding of the application of BIM Methodology applied to the knowledge area of project management, as support for project management and project success.
