BIM and Lean Construction: The Evolution Obstacle in the Brazilian Civil Construction Industry

T. W. Alvarenga, E. N. da Silva, L. C. B. de Brito Mello

Abstract


This article presents the teaching approach of different universities in the state of Rio de Janeiro regarding the dissemination of two civil construction learning paradigms: BIM and Lean Construction. The article’s main purpose is to investigate the learning systems of the two techniques for the benefit of the construction industry, as well as to evaluate their level of recognition. The principal results show that civil engineers graduates acquire little or no knowledge of both techniques, which may become a barrier to their professional evolution and especially to their involvement with public works projects.
