Scope Tracking Using Quantities Identified in the Design Phase

Title: "Scope Tracking Using Quantities Identified in the Design Phase" by Paul K Taylor

Abstract:

Building a 4D Strategy on Top of VDC Principles

I like to think of Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) as a process that ideally flows through a project, digitally (i.e., virtually) creating, collecting, transporting, and delivering project data from design through construction. The VDC process includes software, hardware, and people – ideally all in the proper configurations and locations to allow for cooperative participation, and enabled to deliver a high performing (i.e., optimized) constructed facility. In this context you could say that if BIM is the car then VDC is the driver.

Using BIM to Reduce Time-Related Risks

Utilising Building Information Modelling (BIM) such as 4D modelling and automated activity monitoring systems can eventually fortify the role of the project schedule as a pivotal tool by enhancing the ability of validating schedule duration, sequencing and examining the critical path, which is achieved by providing better vision of parameters not accessible via conventional Gantt charts.
