Abstract: Within the framework of Digital Twin Construction (DTC), lean construction (LC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) support an integrated vision for short term plan-do-check-act cycles of planning and control in construction. However, operations control tasks, such as information delivery in the field, and data gathering from the field, are still largely manual. In this context, we review the current state-of-the-art in BIM and Construction-Tech integration for control of operations. The results show many successful but isolated Construction-Tech innovations and numerous successful localised BIM-based contributions in data gathering, monitoring and information transfer, but no industry attempts at data integration.
