BIM (Building Information Modeling) has become increasingly important in recent years. At the center of BIM is the digital information model of a building. While such information models are already used intensively in building construction for small-scale robotic applications, digital models are only used for large-scale measures and machines in civil engineering. Light construction equipment has not yet been integrated into digital construction management in civil engineering despite its manifold potentials. This publication therefore takes a closer look at the integration of light construction equipment into BIM-supported digital civil engineering. For this purpose, the fundamentals and the state of the art are presented based on literature, and the linking of BIM and light construction equipment is conceptualized and validated by means of a compaction case study.
