The main aim of this paper is to form a conceptual analysis of the interaction of lean construction and BIM for improving construction. While the two are conceptually independent and separate, there appear to be synergies between them that extend beyond the essentially circumstantial nature. This was investigated by compiling a detailed listing of lean construction principles and BIM functionalities which are relevant from this perspective through detailed literature survey and interview with experts. Detailed questionnaire was developed based on the data collected from literature reviews and expert interviews, there by linking the lean principles with BIM functions by framing questions to rate the applicability of BIM in lean construction principles. The questionnaire was then distributed among various professionals in the construction industries in Chennai using software's under BIM. Finally based on the data collected through questionnaire survey a research analysis was carried out using statistical software to determine the weight age of each factor showing the possibility of the interaction between lean and BIM was then compiled. The goal of this paper is to both guide and stimulate research; as such, the approach adopted up to this point is constructive
