The Application of Fuzzy TOPSIS to the selection of Building Information Modeling Software
Keywords:Building Information Modeling (BIM), MCDM, Fuzzy TOPSIS, Software Selection,
AbstractThe evaluation and selection of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software are significantly important before purchasing decision is done by construction companies. This is due to the purchasing BIM software is not only required high investment, yet also affects project outcomes. The decision process is more complex with the emerging of numerous BIM software available in the market with different features, function and cost. This trend leads toward difficulty among companies to select BIM software. The decision might affect the company’s investment and also project needs. Thus, this article demonstrates the application of a BIM software selection decision model using fuzzy TOPSIS. This approach is applied to a real case project for BIM in Malaysia. The case study involves ten criteria and five alternatives. This result indicates a better solution to support decision-making process in BIM software selection. The method has the potential to be applied in another related area by using Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM).
