This study aims at critical assessment of the BIM research in building’s project life cycle, with the aim of bringing together the present-day body of knowledge from global research outputs & delivering a comprehensive & collective perspective of BIM till date.
Objective of this Study
Introduction & methodology
USA & UK has 100+ featured BIM publications
Australia & China close to 100 &
Other countries less than or close to 50
Isikdag, U. & Underwood, J. (2010). A Synopsis of the Handbook of Research on Building Information Modeling. Proceedings of CIB 2010 World Building Congress. May: Salford, MA, 2010.
BIM Fields
2 DMUs & 60 CMUs were identified as new and added in our study
Out of 52 GMUs, majority of publications fall into 16 GMUs category
& these 16 GMUs is represented here.
BIM research started booming from 2010. USA, the UK, China & Australia have researched & published large volumes of
BIM publications.

Process simulation & monitoring, building information services & standardization are most researched
BIM fields/directions
Real life cases and lean & green BIM fields are the emerging ones.

Researchers in North American & European countries focus more on the “standardization” & “building information services”
BIM fields/directions
, while researchers in emerging Asian countries focus more on the “process simulation & monitoring” direction.

Parametric modeling is the most explored

Planning & designing and simulation & quantifying are most researched
DMU series
While, Constructing & fabricating and Operation & maintaining DMU series are the potential areas to be explored.

Design authoring, construction planning, cost estimation & laser scanning are widely researched

BIM implementation and BIM for CCC are most explored

Ongoing work
Includes, social networking analysis, project life cycle associated analysis, keywords analysis, publication sources analysis, etc. for delivering the road map for future BIM research & identifying BIM related research gaps.

Suggestions on current & ongoing works are appreciated.
Thank you

BIM publication data
1500+ BIM publications
65 Countries
25 Years BIM publication data
Literature search process
Querying scholarly databases
Journal search
Searching by topic using the keywords
Backward & forwards searches, i.e. referenced & cited papers
BIM publication screening
with typical evaluation criteria applied, 1500+ BIM publications were screened to 1000 featured BIM publications
BIM Publications were tagged with
publication type, author(s),
year of publication, country & region,
BIM fields,
Project life cycle stages
BIM Uses
Analysis & Visualization
BIM publications were analyzed & visualized, quantitatively & qualitatively under the three BIM research frameworks, i.e.
BIM research compass (Iskidag & Underwood, 2010), Model uses (BIM ThinkSpace, 2015) &
Project life cycle stages.

52 GMUs
73 DMUs
No fixed number of CMUs
