A BIM-supported framework for enhancing joint planning in construction
Paper in proceedings, 2015

Modern construction planning philosophies, such as The Last Planner System (LPS), stipulate that those performing the work on site should participate in the planning. In this paper we describe and analyze a variant of LPS that is currently in use in a Scandinavian construction company and explore the possibilities to enhance the process by integrating the use of Building Information Models (BIM). The study is based on the observations of three planning workshops together with a set of semi-structured interviews. Based on the analysis and findings from the workshops we outline the theoretical design of a Computer-Supported Cooperative Work-System (CSCW) that integrates BIM more closely in the method.
