At the present time, construction industry is lacking information concerning predefined IBS geometrics and components which can be used in BIM. The aim of this study is to prioritize industrialized building system’s components with reference to BIM principals in order to be integrated with BIM software packages. The Warszawski classification which is based on geometrical configurations, was selected as the target classification to be prioritized by using analytical hierarchy process. The results show that the most important categories to be integrated with BIM are “Planar or Panel System”, “Linear or Skeleton System”, “Box System” and “Industrialization on Site” respectively. The results of this paper can be used to develop some specific algorithms and frameworks for BIM to facilitate the process of design calibration and production of IBS components
