Frequently Exchanged File Formats Factors Impacting Data Sharing: Total Respondents Reinventing Collaboration Across Internal & External Project Teams Interoperability in the Construction Industry Patrick Aragon, 2006 Adobe Systems SmartMarket Report, 2007 McGraw Hill Construction BIM Demand by Firms SmartMarket Report, 2007 McGraw Hill Construction As a digital collaboration tool BIM does not address industry issues
