Abstract : Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a technology that is rapidly gaining acceptance throughout the planning, architecture, engineering, construction, operations, and maintenance industries. The challenge to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is to proactively prepare for BIM, use it to drive down costs and delivery time, and maintain or even improve quality at the same time. This document outlines the strategic and implementation plans for using BIM technology to improve USACE planning, design, and construction processes. It describes how USACE will meet or exceed the vision of its customers, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the Army, and the Air Force. The scope of this plan is to focus on the implementation of BIM in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's civil works and military construction business processes, including the process for working with the USACE Architectural Engineering Construction (AEC) industry partners and software vendors.
