Investigation the Opportunity of BIM with Agile Management Approach in Iraqi Construction Projects
Civil Engineering Department, College of Engineering, University of Baghdad, Baghdad, Iraq
The construction industry in Iraq suffers from many problems, perhaps the most important of which is the delay in time and the increase in costs. Therefore, it was necessary to try to adopt a new methodology that would help in overcoming these problems. It was suggested to combine building information modeling with the agile management approach because this technique and methodology is modern and helps in reducing time and cost and improving quality. This paper aims to know the status of using Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Agile Project management (APM) in Iraq and to shed light on the merging of this integration, explaining the benefits, difficulties, and workflow practices, finding the most influencing factors on the time, cost and quality of the project. For a comprehensive understanding, the literature was reviewed for each of BIM and Agile separately, and an initial field survey was conducted to diagnose the factors of greatest importance, and a second field survey was conducted to know the effect of the factors identified from the initial questionnaire on time, cost and quality. The results indicated the weak use of BIM in Iraq, where the non-use rate reached more than 60% and the rate may reach 75%. The agile methodology from the field survey sample is not used in this paper. The benefits that have been presented deserve to be overcome.
Key words: Building Information Modeling (BIM) / Agile Project management (APM) / Traditional Project Management (TPM) / Project Management Institute (PMI)
