Abstract: Building information modeling implementation has brought forward the development of planning guides, or BIM Execution Plans (BEP), which support teams in identifying implementation steps and the stakeholders responsible for generating and managing information. However, numerous BEP templates that exist present a challenge when choosing the guide that can fit every need. With this study, the authors aimed at evaluating a small sample size of BEPs and suggest essential guidelines that must be followed when developing a BEP. With this early study, the authors hope to open a new avenue of research in identifying the next steps in BIM planning.
