Managing actors and building information for supply chain integration

Abstract

Supply Chain (SC) integration has been a long-standing issue. With the advent of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and its influence on inter-organisational relations, SC integration is again highly relevant. This study explores the conditions for SC integration from deploying BIM and SC management (SCM) philosophy. A set of topics from literature, pertinent to BIM and SCM are confronted with the experiences of experts from the industry during a workshop. The bottom-up BIM initiatives and relational management were deemed more decisive than adhering to top-down BIM policies and operational SCM for managing actors and information and inciting SC integration.
