This paper aims to identify the key performance indicators (KPIs) governing the usage of building information modelling (BIM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) for monitoring and digitally managing a construction project in Ahmedabad, a mega city in India. The workflow of BIM-ERP module has been integrated with Internet of Things (IoT) platform to carry out real-time monitoring of the construction project. The methodology adopted for this research is a questionnaire-based primary data research where the data pertaining to the development of the BIM-ERP-IoT module has been collected from a construction site located at Ahmedabad, India. The questionnaire was developed to evaluate the importance of the identified KPIs through the responses obtained from the respondents of the questionnaire survey. Factor analysis was then applied to the identified KPIs for extraction of significant KPIs. The extracted KPIs were then inducted in the workflow of the BIM-ERP-IoT module to develop an integrated module for effective and efficient management of construction project under study. The proposed integrated BIM-ERP-IoT module is a unique attempt for real-time monitoring, asset management, inventory management and enhanced enterprise revenue management for the construction project.
