ABSTRACT While it is expected that
the introduction of BIM, which recently emerged as a new paradigm in the con-struction industry,
will bring about various effects, 2D-based products cannot be easily
substituted with BIM. As such, the 2D and 3D works that designers and
contractors have to perform at the same time will lead to increased
construction costs and tasks. To minimize the overlapping of BMI and 2D
drawings so as to reduce the construction costs, this study surveyed the
products list based on electronic design drawings and on the existing supply guidelines in South
Korea, and examined the 2D-based products among them that can be substituted
with BIM models if the existing electronic supply system is changed to a BIM
ordering system. Based on the results of the survey, this article proposes a
BIM-based product supply
and future development plan at the current time, when 2D and 3D drawings
coexist. It is expected that the results of this article will be used as reference
data for considering the interrelation of a BIM-based product supply system to
2D drawings as well as the existence of alternative drawings
