Description

Is the use of Revit on a construction project beneficial or not? The many effects Revit has during the construction phase can influence the project in a number of ways; including the use of time, the amount of money spent and the overall efficiency of the project work. The reason this research is important is because a project manager should know what the outcomes of a project are with and without the use of Revit. This will help determine if using the software is beneficial or not on a given project. The reader will first need to know and understand what Revit is and its basic functionalities in the construction industry. The approach to this research will be finding a case study of a commercial construction project that incorporated Revit, and studying the construction of that project in regards to money spent, time spent, errors incurred, etc. Then, find a second case study of a project of similar attributes that did not incorporate Revit and analyze that project and its outcomes as well. In doing this research the vital components of a construction project will be known in two different projects; one with the use of Revit, and one without the use. This will determine the general answer to if you should use Revit on a project or not, given the benefits and tradeoffs. The research will show how beneficial the use of Revit was or was not on the given project.
