Abstract

The software utilization in civil construction Brazilian industry has been suffering since the 90’s a continuous implementation considering small, medium and large companies. In this scenery, emerged CAD – Computer Aided Design –and BIM – Building Information Modeling – tools, that have different concepts and operation. The objective is analyze BIM tools potential in Brazilian scenery, stablishing a comparison between the performance of CAD and BIM tools. In order to understand the variables of the subject, was done a technical review focused on most cited authors of the area, as well as a survey, applied to experts of project development in Brazil. The results have shown that BIM tools are more effective than CAD tools considering both basic projects until final projects, and for future challenges, BIM solutions can optimize project process in Brazil´s civil construction enterprises.
