The Integration of Industialized Building System (IBS) with BIM: A concept and Theory to Improve Construction Industry Productivity

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Construction industry is becoming increasingly technology-oriented. Currently, modern IT based, mechanized based and software-based processes and tools play an active role in developing construction industry. Although many researchers have studied Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Industrialized Building System (IBS), but these topics have been rarely studied together. Hence, there is a gap between integration and coordination of IBS into BIM. In order to implement IBS into BIM successfully, specific frameworks and standards ought to be determined, developed and embedded in BIM software. At the present time, the construction industry is lacking information concerning predefined IBS geometrics and components, which can be used in BIM. This book is to integrate IBS with BIM by the virtue of solving and covering the existing functionality gap between BIM and IBS in order to increase the productivity and efficiency in the construction industry
