The projects held in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry, require collaboration between different parties. Therefore, the stakeholders from different fields come together to fulfil the projects’ requirements with high interaction. The AEC industry had digital transformation practices such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) in recent years. However, the adoption of BIM is not straightforward since the usage of BIM requires technical and managerial knowledge. One of this technical knowledge is interoperability, which is challenging and costly for the AEC industry.
Furthermore, lack of human resources was found as one of the BIM implementation hindrance factor in the literature, since skill building and developing training program for white-collars are very costly for companies. Therefore, this chapter aims to inform graduates and readers about interoperability concept, file formats, and developed solutions to overcome interoperability issues. Finally, the knowledge which is obtained from this chapter will facilitate and contributes problem solving capability of graduates and harmonisation of new graduates to integrated project delivery approach.
