Lean, BIM and Augmented Reality Applied in the Design and Construction Phase: A Literature Review

Claudia Calderon-Hernandez and Xavier Brioso
Abstract— Along with the development of technology, new tools are born which facilitate the workflow in the engineering and construction field. By taking advantage of these tools, like Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Augmented Reality (AR), multiple benefits are obtained such as: (1) reducing time in decision making during the design stage (2) a better understanding of the documents in the planning stage (3) monitoring of the project in real time to ensure the fulfilment of the schedule, amongst others. On the other hand, and since its origins, Lean Construction philosophy promotes the use of these tools to automatize projects according to its principles. The objective of this paper is to present the state of the art regarding the simultaneous use of BIM, AR and Lean Construction, applied to the design and construction phases. For this purpose, the documents published in the last 5 years regarding BIM and AR in the conference of the International Group for Lean Construction and main journals were reviewed. Finally, the paper concludes with the recommendation of assessing a deeper research on the integration of BIM, AR and Lean Construction.

Index Terms— Lean construction, augmented reality, Building Information Modeling (BIM).
