Lei Zhang, Honglei Liu, Guangbin Wang


It is valuable to study social relation cognition of participants about virtual prototyping technology in construction projects to promote its acceptance and application. Building information modeling (BIM) is a transformative virtual prototyping technology for construction industry. The analysis of social relation is closely related to BIM application to stakeholders, which involves many cognitive indicators, i.e. organizations, spaces and behaviors. Based on social network analysis, a cognitive model for actorsâ?? social relation to BIM knowledge is proposed?Using survey data, this paper explores the cognitive ability between participants.
