BIM'S INFLUENCE ON PREVIOUS WORKING METHODS (English)
Abstract [en]

Purpose: Digitalization has progressed with big steps in the recent decades. This has been reflected in the construction industry where “Building Information Modeling” has been implemented. The implementation has entailed some complications for designers, existing established working methods are opposed to new software and digital instruments. There are also differences in skills between the designers who have worked long in the industry and those who are newly graduates. Those who have a long working experience do not have as high digital competence as the newly graduated but they have a much broader practical knowledge. The purpose of the study is to analyze how the implementation of BIM has affected constructors about their professional/technical competence and to develop measures to increase the digital competence so that constructors can fully utilize their professional competence.

Method: The method used in this study is interviews. The study will be carried out through qualitative methods where the interviews are semi-structured. Several interviews have been conducted at two consulting offices in Uddevalla and Trollhättan. The interviewees are constructors with experience of construction before BIM and constructors with experience of BIM from their education.

Findings: The study shows what factors that have contributed to difficulties in the working method BIM. Digitalization in general has affected the workflow that constructors carry out because they replace old habits. The construction industry is constantly changing, and older constructors can adapt to the system by training. This creates difficulties, which means that they require help from employees with a better digital competence. A higher digital competence is necessary to keep up with the incubation. Therefore, through good leadership, you should help older constructors, this is done by motivating them to learn how to use software to design, communicate and organize.

Implications: There is a lack of digital competence in several constructors without education of BIM. There are also complications between constructors due to differences in skills and different perspectives on their problem solving. The study proposes that a BIM-coordinator is needed to steer the implementation of BIM in the right direction in a company and that a broader investigation must be carried out.

Limitations: The report’s survey method was only limited to one company in addition to two offices, which meant that the perspective in the study was limited. The study focuses more on identifying the problem and finding a solution to the problem, it does not focus on how the measures should be carried out and what consequences this would have on a company.
