Abstract [en]

The Construction industry has had a relatively low increase in the efficiency rates over the recent years. Two developments of Lean construction and Building Information Modelling(BIM) have been introduced that have each shown improvements in the efficiency rates in construction. These two individual concepts of Lean and BIM have been applied each independent of the other and because of their similarities and overlapping benefits, it is thought that them being applied together improves the efficiency in a greater way than them being applied individually. This study looks at the synergy that is possible due to the overlapping benefits in applying Lean Construction and BIM. The study is a Literature review aimed at understanding Lean and BIM and their overlaps. The Literature looks at past research studies that have investigated this area. The clear look at these studies shows that when the two concepts are combined, then that collaboration leads to a more integrated process in construction that in turn yields higher efficiency rates.

Abstract [sv]

Byggindustrin har haft en relativt låg ökning i effektivitetstalen de senaste åren. Utvecklingen inom två nya områden, Lean Construction och Building Information Modelling (BIM), där man kunnat visa ökad effektivitet genom båda åtgärder. De två begreppen Lean Construction och BIM har introducerats oberoende av varandra på grund av deras likheter och överlappande fördelar men det är vid användningen av båda åtgärder samtidigt som den bästa effekten har kunnat visas i motsats mot om varje åtgärd hade använts separat. Denna studie undersöker synergieffekterna som är möjliga genom överlappande fördelar vid användandet av Lean Construction och BIM. Det är en litteraturstudie som syftar till att förstå Lean och BIM och deras överlappning. Litteraturen tittar på tidigare forskning som har undersökt detta område. En noggrann betraktelse av dessa studier visar att när de två åtgärderna kombineras leder det till en mer integrerad byggprocess som i sin tur ger högre effektivitetstal.
