This paper describes the similarities and differences between Product Lifecycle Management and Building Information Modelling concepts, solutions and challenges, focusing on integration issues relative to aligning business processes (corporate and project level) and information systems. The paper presents a literature based discussion of the main methods, platforms, effects and criticisms, showing that the two concepts share fundamental similarities but are distinct in their scope/level of integration and approach to data, information and knowledge management. The paper highlights several common problems that also account for structural differences of each sector. The paper aims to provide guidance on issues critical to integration and PLM / BIM deployment and closes with a discussion of future research directions.
