Desktop Audit and Analysis of Model Server Capability

Singh, Vishal, Gu, Ning, London, Kerry, Brankovic, Ljiljana, & Taylor, Claudelle (2007) Desktop Audit and Analysis of Model Server Capability. CRC for Construction Innovation, Brisbane.


This report presents the current state and approach in Building Information Modelling (BIM). The report is focussed at providing a desktop audit of the current state and capabilities of the products and applications supporting BIM. This includes discussion on BIM model servers as well as discipline specific applications, for which the distinction is explained below. The report presented here is aimed at giving a broad overview of the tools and applications with respect to their BIM capabilities and in no way claims to be an exhaustive report for individual tools. Chapter 4 of the report includes the research and development agendas pertaining to the BIM approach based on the observations and analysis from the desktop audit.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
