Choosing by Advantages –
Sharing of Case Studies

The goal of this presentation is to share case studies of Choosing by Advantages in the AEC Industry. The presentation will take about 60 minutes and we can allocate 15 minutes for Q&A. The agenda of the presentation is as follows:

• A Brief Introduction to Choosing By Advantages
• What problems that we face every day and how can CBA solve some of them?
• Present case studies of CBA in the AEC industry. I will present 2 to 3 examples of how teams have used CBA, the problems / scenarios of the situation, and the outcome of the decisions. These cases include: HVAC system selection, hiring a contractor for an IPD project, and selecting a parking solution for a project.

The learning objectives of the session are:
• Give the participants a light introduction to Choosing By Advantages
• Allow the participants to connect the CBA process with some of the problems that they have on their projects.
• Give the participants some examples of how CBA has been used so that they know when is an appropriate situation to use CBA.
• Inspire the participants to learn more about CBA and raise awareness of this topic.
