The application of 3D and 4D CAD software is considered to be able to offer possibilities for more consistent project documentation and visualisation, which should eventually enable fail cost reduction. 4D software is seen as a tool for project organisers and project team members to better communicate and analyse schedule information.. In this paper experiences with 4D CAD software in construction projects are discussed. Analyses of these experiences and additional user experiments have lead to a short-term and a long-term implementation strategy in practice.
