AbstractToday few project teams avail themselves of the continued and widespread use of 3D/4D modeling to the extent effective and efficient. Due to this limited practice, the implementation of 3D/4D modeling is mostly based on anecdotes from a few past projects. However, ad-hoc experiences from individual projects are not sufficient for AEC professionals to guide implementations of 3D/4D modeling. In addition, we found a number of general beliefs (p.2) about what has been learned from implementations and impacts of 3D/4D modeling. These beliefs are tacit knowledge and hence might be valid or could be wrong when AEC professionals apply them from one situation to another. Therefore, the goals of our research were to: • develop a framework to capture, describe, and organize the characteristics of 3D/4D modeling implementations so that AEC professionals can document 3D/4D modeling experiences and compare them across projects; and • provide researchers with a framework for cross-case pattern analysis that supports the generation of insights and guidelines.
