Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been considered as a solution in construction industry to numerous problems such as delays, increased lead in times and increased costs. This is due to the concept and characteristic of BIM that will reshaped the way construction project teams work together to increase productivity and improve the final project outcomes (cost, time, quality, safety, functionality, maintainability, etc.).As a result, the construction industry has witnesses numerous of BIM software available in market.Each of this software has offers different function, features. Furthermore, the adoption of BIM required high investment on software, hardware and also training expenses.Thus, there is indentified that there is a need of decision aid for appropriated BIM software selection that fulfill the project needs.However, research indicates that there is limited study attempt to guide decision in BIM software selection problem.Thus, this paper highlight the importance of decision making and support for BIM software selection as it is vital to increase productivity, construction project throughout building lifecycle.
