Academics Building Information Model (BIM) Construction industry Independent contractors Stakeholders Industrial relations Supply chain Indonesia

The 4.0 industrial revolution in all fields encouraged the construction industry to make technological-based innovations. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the tools in advancing construction technology today. On the other hand, supply chain construction continues to grow and becomes important in project management. This study aims to identify the potential use of BIM in construction supply chain management. Preliminary studies on several projects in Indonesia were carried out as identification methods. The Delphi process was used to obtain the data described in the Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat (SWOT) analysis. As a result, BIM has the potential to be applied to the construction SCM with several considerations. There are 5 trends in strength, 4 trends in weakness, 5 trends in opportunity, and 3 trends in threat. Trends in strength and opportunity are used as indicators in the analysis of impacts. BIM as advanced technology is the highest indicator and the lowest trust between stakeholders in the application of BIM in the construction supply chain. In addition, harmonization between BIM actors is needed: the Ministry of Public Works, contractors, suppliers and academics in the supply chain.
