Severe issues about data acquisition and management arise during the design
creation and development due to complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity. BIM (Building
Information Modelling) is a tool for a team based lean design approach towards improved
architectural practice across the supply chain. However, moving from a CAD (Computer
Aided Design) approach to BIM (Building Information Modelling) represents a fundamental
change for individual disciplines and the construction industry as a whole. Although BIM
has been implemented by large practices, it is not widely used by SMEs (Small and Medium
Sized Enterprises).
