A Study on the Issue Analysis for the Application of BIM Technology to Civil Engineering in Korea


 As conducted in the field of construction, the utilization of BIM (Building Information Modeling) is becoming a hot issue for many public work projects. Also, its market seems to be expanded as BIM is applied in procurement constructions. In this study, it examined the current state of BIM application that is being utilized in Civil Engineering nowadays for the BIM technology application while analyzing the issues raised regarding its application. The analyzed issues - Break off of BIM data in each construction stage, lack of cooperative system, insufficient standard library and guideline, etc. - were classified in terms of process infrastructure and system, and each measure for improvement was derived. It is advised to establish the method of strategic approach and detailed action plan for the execution of the improvement measures.
