SSUD71-013: Managing Complexity in Construction (Maximising Value)

Description

This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/Lean/IPD principles and digital transformation to maximise value in all aspects of design and project delivery of complex projects. The strategic management of digital information using 3D BIM models, digital tools and Lean/IPD principles to collaboratively collect, analyse and communicate data is the driving force for future delivery of major complex projects with multiple stakeholders. The subject extends the discussion and practical applications of BIM best practice with decision-making processes based on robust, accessible data-driven information from digital design concept to operation of a building over its lifespan. This subject involves a critical review of using BIM principles and processes integrated with Lean/IPD based practices. The underlying focus of the subject ties all concepts back to information management delivering value not only to the contractor but to the ultimate client.

The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment. The lectures cover a range of topics relating to the opportunities and methods employed by contractors to leverage BIM during construction.

Learning outcomes

1. Evaluate BIM/Lean/IPD technology outputs to make decisions regarding manufacturing aspects of the delivery process that could contribute to maximisation of project value.
2. Assess potential construction delivery intentions using BIM platforms with a Lean construction focus within an IPD approach to determine the best combination and integration of digital information to optimize value on projects.
3. Synthesise various aspects of the 7 and 8 component models (depending on model source) for maximizing value on projects with particular emphasis on - collaboratively collecting, analysing and communicating data for delivery of major complex projects using BIM best-practice decision making processes integrated with Lean/IPD based practices to leverage BIM during construction.
