Abstract : Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology has rapidly gained acceptance throughout the planning, architecture, engineering, construction, operations, and maintenance industries. The challenge for the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is to extend BIM use beyond its basic labor- and time-saving benefits to become a fully realized information network that permanently transforms conventional business processes to unprecedented levels of efficiency and organization. This document describes the current USACE strategic plan, reflecting progress made toward the goals of the original 2006 USACE BIM roadmap as published in Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Technical Report TR-06-10 (October 2006). This update of the strategic roadmap focuses on fuller integration of BIM technologies into USACE planning, design, construction, and operations and maintenance (O&M) 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 BIM implementation within the business processes of the Military Construction (MILCON) and Civil Works programs, including processes for working with USACE industry partners and software vendors.
