Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a systemic innovation in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) sector that impacts all aspects of the industry, beyond just the development and adoption of a specific technology. BIM as a systemic innovation entails interdependencies between technological, process, and organizational/cultural aspects, requiring innovation across all three dimensions. These mutual dependencies across the different aspects has created a BIM ecosystem in which BIM-related products, processes, and people form a complex network of interactions, influencing one another, determined by factors that are internal as well as external to the AEC sector. This chapter describes the BIM ecosystem and explains how the products, processes, and people (PPP) in this ecosystem coevolve.
