Abstract: Literature discussion on BIM benefits and barriers for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises is lacking. Testing the independence of statistic for nominal variables as such requires application of statistical techniques including Fisher’s Exact Test, and Factor Analysis. The nominal variables were tested across 14 variables as operational definitions for benefits, and six variables were selected as operational definitions for concept of barriers. After factor analysis, four components related to benefits and two for barriers showed the highest significant association. The four benefits factors influencing digitalization are operation, marketability, productivity, and information-exchange. The two barriers are lack of professionalism and know-how.
