Abstract

Development of the schedule control of precast concrete supply chain has been studied. Main idea was to use BIM model created by structural engineer as a user-interface for schedule control, for saving different status information of the real-time schedule situation of the propagation of structural design, element manufacture, delivery and site erection directly to the BIM model by using a cloud-based networked service. Some of the missing software applications were programmed by the software companies participated in the project. Experiments were done in a real construction project in Finland, where the information from design, prefabrication, delivery and erection phases was synchronized between the stakeholders by using the cloud service. The most important observations and results are introduced and analyzed. A future model for intelligent BIM based schedule control concept is concluded.
