Scheduling and 4D Simulation

BIM for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Curriculum

Learning Objectives

After completing this lesson, students will be able to:

  • Define selection and search sets to easily map model elements to the scheduled construction tasks.
  • Assess the best method for mapping model elements to schedule tasks—either manually or by defining mapping rules.
  • Identify problems in construction sequencing through 4D simulation.
  • Understand the various methods available for saving and sharing a timeline simulation.
  • Identify time-based clashes that temporary construction materials.
