How does an A3 report relate to BIM?

I posted a couple of discussions on two sites that I have a prototype A3 report.  I received a large number of inquiries asking for a copy of the A3 report.  How does this relate to BIM and 3D modeling?

That’s a good question.  An A3 is a simple way to describe a problem to solve.  An A3 report is in the suite of “LEAN tools” that developed from the work of Deming and others.  BIM is a tool to solve a complex construction program.  The A3 is an excellent starting point for asking the question “what problem is BIM solving?”  By asking a question about what the Owner values, it is possible to identify the opportunity for successful use of BIM.
