Initial Schedule Linking (From MS-Project, Primavera, MS-Excel)

It has long been a popular technique for project planning. But it lacks something to be desired when it comes to visualizing a project timeline. 4D model is the solution to it. 4D model is a 3D CAD model attached to the fourth dimension of time via a schedule. Though the concept of 4D scheduling has been around over 20 years, it has not been popular due to some technical challenges associated with it. The continuous advancement in technology and the emergence of Building Information Modeling (BIM) have removed all challenges associated with 4D scheduling. With the increasing success of BIM in the realm of designs, the adoption of 4D modeling is becoming the norm today.

Initial Schedule Linking

In 4D Scheduling, we link every object in a Building Information Model (BIM) with its corresponding schedule activity to create an accurate animation of the construction process. Due to the length and extensive nature of the construction process this vastly enhances the planning and scheduling process. With 4D Scheduling, a project manager, owner and contractor are able to see side-by-side comparisons between the planned versus the actual work that has been completed on the project. This provides a graphical representation of the baseline and the actual work, helping to quickly identify any issues that may hinder the completion of the project.
