BIM is currently applied in some domestic construction firms, but it is not being actively utilized due to changes in working environments and qualms about new studies. In order to utilize a BIM model in the design phase, process information is needed during construction, but the input system and utilization method of the process information's state are not complete. Therefore, we propose a BIM template for construction progress management that can show basic BIM information as the construction progresses in an easy and convenient way. This method will facilitate the adoption of BIM and enhance the productivity of construction companies. To this end, we designed a progress explorer for step-by-step progress and work schedules, and we generated three-dimensional views and a progress list by applying unit information (primary units, part units, and detail units) of the work breakdown structure (WBS) to the parameters. To use the BIM template, work progress information is input to the BIM modeling objects through Dynamo. We also used Dynamo for quick and easy calculation of the quantity of materials needed for construction work. To test the BIM template, we applied it to an actual project and evaluated its visibility and a progress list. The results showed that the proposed BIM template facilitates progress management of a project and can thus facilitate the adoption of BIM and improve the productivity of construction companies.
