This BIM Project Execution Planning Guide is a product of the BIM Project Execution Planning buildingSMART alliance™ (bSa) Project. The bSa is charged with developing the National Building Information Modeling Standard™ (NBIMS). This guide was developed to provide a practical manual that can be used by project teams for designing their BIM strategy and developing a BIM Project Execution Plan. The core modeling and information exchange concepts are developed to complement the long term goals of the bSA in the development of a standard that can be implemented throughout the AECOO Industry to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of BIM implementation on projects. This guide was researched and developed by The Computer Integrated Construction (CIC) Research Group of The Pennsylvania State University.
