Abstract

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has demonstrated a wide range of merits over traditional and modern constructions. The integration of generative design (GD) with BIM in the construction industry has become an interesting topic, even though the concept is not very new. Prefabricated construction (PC) offers several advantages over traditional construction and has recently advanced to a new level of study because of the usage of BIM. The synchronization of BIM with PC is becoming simpler to create automatic design solutions in its early phases, thanks to the current breakthroughs in the internet of things (IoT) and its applications. There has been an increase in research interests that are mostly focused on examining tools and applications. However, there are not many studies that have looked at methodological relationships and other factors, which has led researchers to focus more on GD-BIM-based investigations. This study provides a preliminary critical analysis of the software, skill, and methodological requirements for current GD-BIM integration methodologies. The publications are pulled from web of science platform and thoroughly examined in statistical and systematic methods to give a fresh viewpoint on objective-oriented and skill-driven GD-BIM development for PC. New guidance to improve skill learning for GD-BIM development is recommended in this study. The analysis and recommendations might aid the researchers and designers in comprehending the situation and paying attention to future requirements.
