CONFERENCE 403 - LA GESTION DES PROJETS BIM. EST-CE LA FIN DE LA GESTION DE PROJETS TRADITIONNELLE EN CONSTRUCTION?
Designing and executing management processes in construction are usually based on project management practices and theory. However, the importance of traditional project management within the building industry as well as the relevance of project management theory have both been questioned by Lean Construction researchers. Building Information Modeling (BIM) and related integrated practices make traditional project management models even more questionable, because the planning and execution of construction projects in BIM management is more so related to managing flow of information, work and materials rather than separating things into batches, activities and tasks. This paper, through a recent case study, explores the challenges of using traditional project management approaches with BIM management.
Daniel Forgues is an architect, PMP and a full professor of Project Management and Applied Information Technology in Construction and Sustainable Construction at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) for 11 years.
Before embracing a career in academia, Forgues put in 25 years of industry work in project and program management in the fields of construction and computer science, and worked as a project management consultant and trainer. He was part of the team of PMP certification mentors as well as a member of the Montreal chapter’s council for nearly 10 years.
He is the cofounder of a research group on sustainable integration and development, is an interest owner of the Chaire industrielle Pomerleau and a laboratory on integrated design and Building Information Modeling (BIM). He is one of the rare BIM researchers in Canada and conducts his research with many industrial partners, from both public and private sectors.
