ICT is a growing possibility in construction, but for utilization it’s necessary to develop processes on wide area, which are e.g. design management, project management, site planning and supply chains. New process planning tools provide better possibility to recognise process and site risks at early phase but especially to benefit BIM information directly and quickly in process planning and management..
