Availability of the diverse tools and data used during the design process necessitates the selection and use of a design environment with integrated design management capabilities.Once establishing design as a process, it is discussed in relation with the attributes of integrated planning and control.The authors then discuss design management with respect to BIM and compare it with other conventional design management strategies. They review current thinking and practices in BIM, and then propose a generalized model for design management in the AEC industry.Special emphasis is laid on the efficiency of BIM and how it can be adapted effectively.The new conceptual framework of design management in BIM is presented while simultaneously studying this framework with reference to existing design management theories.
