SSUD71-010: Process Evaluation and Change Management in BIM May 2021 [Intensive - Weeks 1 and 7]

General information

This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/Lean/IPD to optimise both the processes used to deliver complex projects and the management of the project changes that inevitably occur during major complex projects with multiple stakeholders. The principle of using 3D BIM models and Lean/IPD principles to identify coordination and other design problem areas collaboratively and to rectify them at a time when change has minimum impact on project budgets will be explored in-depth and at a practical as well as conceptual level. The project phases of the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework will be used to inform the frequency of design and pricing evaluation to ensure change is initiated swiftly when analysis of the BIM model indicates it to be necessary. The subject provides another opportunity for observing and using BIM software platforms in extended practical applications.  The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment dedicated to utilising the BIM technology platforms to identify change opportunities and imperatives. The subject introduces students to using BIM/Lean/IPD principles to ensure project processes ensure minimisation of waste and optimum timeliness of making necessary change.

Enrolment requirements

Requisites: ?


Restrictions: ?

Students are required to have cognate discipline knowledge prior to enrolment. Bond PG sudents enrolled in either Architecture, Project Management , Property or City Planning can take this subject as an elective. Study abroad students or Bond students enrolled in non-cognate degrees require approval from the programs Discipline Lead to enrol.

This subject is not available as a general elective. To be eligible for enrolment, the subject must be specified in the students’ program structure.

Assurance of learning

Assurance of Learning means that universities take responsibility for creating, monitoring and updating curriculum, teaching and assessment so that students graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for employability and/or further study.

At Bond University, we carefully develop subject and program outcomes to ensure that student learning in each subject contributes to the whole student experience. Students are encouraged to carefully read and consider subject and program outcomes as combined elements.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

Program Learning Outcomes provide a broad and measurable set of standards that incorporate a range of knowledge and skills that will be achieved on completion of the program. If you are undertaking this subject as part of a degree program, you should refer to the relevant degree program outcomes and graduate attributes as they relate to this subject.

Subject Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

On successful completion of this subject the learner will be able to:
  1. Apply BIM/Lean/IPD technology platforms and/or principles to enhance decision making regarding the need for and execution of project change/variation/s.
  2. Prepare proposed process changes using learnings from use of BIM/Lean/IPD technology platforms and/or principles in specific change/variations management situations to inform and enhance improvement in variations management protocols and processes on current and future projects.
  3. Discover the importance of collaborative and integrated input to workflow and design model change in collaborative a BIM/Lean/IPD project environment.
  4. Point out potential risks of failure to ensure collaborative identification and management of design and delivery process improvement, and optimum variation control during all phases of the development process as defined in the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework.
  5. Analyse BIM models to determine where design and construction outcomes might be improved by timely initiation of design variations.
  6. Prepare estimates of cost for design variations being considered using the BIM model in a collaborative stakeholder working environment.


Assessment details

TypeTask%Timing*Outcomes assessed
*In-Class Quiz - Individual Online examination, multiple choice based, multiple attempts allowable. 50% To Be Negotiated 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

  • § Indicates group/teamwork-based assessment
  • * Assessment timing is indicative of the week that the assessment is due or begins (where conducted over multiple weeks), and is based on the standard University academic calendar
  • C = Students must reach a level of competency to successfully complete this assessment.

Assessment criteria

High Distinction 85-100 Outstanding or exemplary performance in the following areas: interpretative ability; intellectual initiative in response to questions; mastery of the skills required by the subject, general levels of knowledge and analytic ability or clear thinking.
Distinction 75-84 Usually awarded to students whose performance goes well beyond the minimum requirements set for tasks required in assessment, and who perform well in most of the above areas.
Credit 65-74 Usually awarded to students whose performance is considered to go beyond the minimum requirements for work set for assessment. Assessable work is typically characterised by a strong performance in some of the capacities listed above.
Pass 50-64 Usually awarded to students whose performance meets the requirements set for work provided for assessment.
Fail 0-49 Usually awarded to students whose performance is not considered to meet the minimum requirements set for particular tasks. The fail grade may be a result of insufficient preparation, of inattention to assignment guidelines or lack of academic ability. A frequent cause of failure is lack of attention to subject or assignment guidelines.

Quality assurance

For the purposes of quality assurance, Bond University conducts an evaluation process to measure and document student assessment as evidence of the extent to which program and subject learning outcomes are achieved. Some examples of student work will be retained for potential research and quality auditing purposes only. Any student work used will be treated confidentially and no student grades will be affected.

Study information

Submission procedures

Students must check the [email protected] subject site for detailed assessment information and submission procedures.

Policy on late submission and extensions

A student who has not established a basis for an extension in compliance with University and Faculty policy either by 1) not applying before the assessment due date or 2) by having an application rejected due to failure to show a justifiable cause for an extension, will receive a penalty on assessment submitted after its due date. The penalty will be 10% of marks awarded to that assessment for every day late, with the first day counted after the required submission time has passed. No assessment will be accepted for consideration seven calendar days after the due date. Where a student has been granted an extension, the late penalty starts from the new due date and time set out in the extension.

Policy on plagiarism

The University’s Academic Integrity Policy defines plagiarism as the act of misrepresenting as one’s own original work: another’s ideas, interpretations, words, or creative works; and/or one’s own previous ideas, interpretations, words, or creative work without acknowledging that it was used previously (i.e., self-plagiarism). The University considers the act of plagiarising to be a breach of the Student Conduct Code and, therefore, subject to the Discipline Regulations which provide for a range of penalties including the reduction of marks or grades, fines and suspension from the University.

Bond University utilises Originality Reporting software to inform academic integrity.

Feedback on assessment

Feedback on assessment will be provided to students within two weeks of the assessment submission due date, as per the Assessment Policy.

Disability support

If you have a disability, illness, injury or health condition that impacts your capacity to complete studies, exams or assessment tasks, it is important you let us know your special requirements, early in the semester. Students will need to make an application for support and submit it with recent, comprehensive documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer. Students with a disability are encouraged to contact the Disability Office at the earliest possible time, to meet staff and learn about the services available to meet your specific needs. Please note that late notification or failure to disclose your disability can be to your disadvantage as the University cannot guarantee support under such circumstances.
