Abstract

Recently, businesses and government bodies in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector have faced a key challenge to the delivery of effective project outcomes. Asset Information Modelling (AIM) is a process aimed to serve the asset process once the project is handed over. Considering that Blockchain is a new data management technology that is intended to provide security within a decentralized culture, this could be the foundation for improving asset processes. The research is achieved through a systematic review of the relevant literature. Several studies have been identified in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Blockchain in the construction domain. However, there is little research conducted in the context of Asset Management Processes (AMP). Skilled people are the main challenge for AIM and Blockchain: findings show that a lack of technological awareness and its link to the adoption of using AIM and Blockchain in the asset management life cycle is the main problem.
