Abstract:Despite the fact that traditional forms of procurement still dominate the Netherlands, the choice for integrated contracts is becoming increasingly popular. This trend is also visible at the professional contractor Dura Vermeer Bouw Hengelo (DVBH). Therefore, DVBH wants to focus more on these contracts. However, when opting for integrated contracts, DVBH must develop both the design and an accurate tender price in the tender phase of a project. They also have to meet the contractual terms of the integrated contract, such as quality assurance. However, DVBH experiences that the available time in the tender phase is limited and the tender budgets are tight, so it is difficult to make both a design and an accurate tender price within time and budget. This paper describes how a combination of Systems Engineering (SE), Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) can be used to develop a design and calculate an accurate tender price within the limited time range. In addition, it is investigated to which extent this combination is applied at DVBH and can be implemented. It can be concluded that, according to literature, (1) an integral model must be developed that (2) represents an appropriate solution that complies with both the (3) requirements and (4) limiting information. However, this combination is only partly applied at DVBH, mostly due to a lack of time, knowledge and suitable ICT resources. Interventions, such as a more efficient division of time and investments in knowledge and ICT resources are needed to implement the combination at DVBH.
