Whitepaper: Project Information Management 2021

Current State and Future Direction for the A&E Industry

Many architectural and engineering firms continue to struggle with the management of project information. The amount of time spent managing project information is impacting productivity — this is not a new problem. The cultural shift spurred on by the COVID-19 pandemic, away from "what's mine is mine" to "what's mine is ours" is new.

Newforma, in partnership with Dodge Data & Analytics, conducted research to identify current issues, trends, and future direction for managing project information across architecture and engineering firms in the construction industry. The purpose of the 2021 Project Information Management study of architecture and engineering firms is to gain a better understanding of how project information is being managed today, and specifically to explore current challenges and the future expectations of managing project information.
