There is an advance modelling tool that currently been pushed by the industry is BIM. BIM as known as Building Modelling Information is a computerized process that is used to design, understand and establish the key physical and functional characteristic of a building on a virtual computerized model basis at its most basic level [4]. Basically the resulting model is a digital representation of the building which the data can be extracted and analyzed to generate information that can be used for decision making and enhance the process of delivering the building and the entire life cycle use of the building [4]. BIM implementation can help to improve the quality of project especially the schedule management. By implementing BIM into construction project, it can provides schedule visualization which can make the construction planning more efficient. Besides that, through the BIM model clash detection can be detected in the preconstruction phase which save a lot of time on rework during construction phase. The objectives of this study are to investigate the issues on schedule management in construction industry and to analyze the schedule management on BIM project in construction industry. This study was focused on G6 and G7 contractors. Furthermore, the project location was set in big city of Malaysia such as Johor, Kuala Lumpur and Penang. This is due to most of the construction projects in these locations have applied BIM compare to other states.
