Various BIM capability and maturity models have been developed to assist architecture, engineering, construction and facilities management (AEC/FM) organizations in measuring the performance of their BIM utilizations. Due to differences in applicability and focus of these models, they are able to meet the demands of different BIM users. In this study, eight BIM capability and maturity models identified in the literature are compared based on several different criteria. The results show that there is no holistic model that includes process definitions that cover the facility life-cycle and contains measures for assessing all of these AEC/FM processes. A reference model for assessing BIM capability of AEC/FM processes was developed. It was grounded on the meta-model of ISO/IEC 330xx family of standards and developed iteratively via expert reviews and an exploratory case study. It includes AEC/FM processes which were evaluated using the BIM capability levels, their associated BIM attributes, and a four-point rating scale. BIM-CAREM was evaluated by conducting four explanatory case studies. The results showed that BIM-CAREM was capable of identifying BIM capabilities of different AEC/FM processes.


Adapting SPICE for Development of a Reference Model for Building Information Modeling-BIM-CAREM
Yılmaz, Gökçen ; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Demirös, Onur (2018-10-09)
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is highly adopted by Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) companies around the world due to its benefits such as improving collaboration of stakeholders in projects. Effective implementation of BIM in organizations requires assessment of existing BIM performances of AEC/FM processes. We developed a reference model for BIM capability assessments based on the meta-model of the ISO/IEC 330xx (the most recent version of SPICE) family of ...
An Assessment of BIM-CAREM Against the Selected BIM Capability Assessment Models
YILMAZ, GÖKÇEN; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; DEMİRÖRS, ONUR (2018-10-04)
Although various BIM capability and maturity models have been developed to meet different BIM capability/maturity assessment purposes, there has not been a model which is broadly used and commonly accepeted in the literature. A Reference Model for BIM Capability Assessment (BIM-CAREM) was developed based on the meta-model of ISO/IEC 33000 to be used for assessing BIM capability levels of AEC/FM processes. This paper aims to compare the components of BIM-CAREM with the assessment questions of the identified ...
A review on capability and maturity models of building ınformation modelling
Yılmaz, Gökçen; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Demirörs, Onur (null; 2017-07-07)
Process assessment and maturity models in software engineering are widely used for process improvement. Likewise, assessing BIM capability and maturity have important effects on increasing BIM performance and enhancing benefits of BIM usage. Thus, there are various BIM capability and maturity models in the literature which are important for users to be able to select appropriate model for their BIM assessment purposes. This study aims to identify and analyse BIM capability and maturity models in the constru...
BIM-CAREM: a reference model for building information modelling capability assessment
Yılmaz, Gökçen; Akçamete Güngör, Aslı; Department of Information Systems (2017)
Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been implemented by various Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) firms in various countries due to inefficiencies in traditional construction project management practices. AEC/FM organization require to gauge the effectiveness of their BIM implementations for measuring their performance and enabling continuous improvement in BIM usage. Therefore, various BIM capability and maturity models are developed to help organizations achie...
An Investigation of building information modeling maturity in turkish small-medium size enterprises architectural and engineering firms
Sarı, Ramazan; Pekeriçli, Mehmet Koray; Tanyer, Ali Murat; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2017)
Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry experiences Building Information Modeling (BIM) transition process in all over the world. As the firms have advanced on BIM implementation, a necessity to benchmark the BIM performance has emerged. A couple of assessment tools were released for the sector to be used by organizations, individuals and governments to benchmark the BIM implementation maturity. The architecture and engineering firms in Turkey are also in the midst of BIM transition. Howev...
