LOD is a key aspect in the delivery of information to stakeholders.
The Level of Development (LOD) makes the value of the model evident to all parties and creates trust between different people working on the same project. When model information is more reliable, it becomes easier to understand for all the project stakeholders and decisions are made quicker.
By basing actions on quality information, people involved in the construction process can make decisions that are less risky and more productive. Conversely, incomplete information can create multiple questions and requests for further information (RFIs), which leads to reworks and rescheduling, increasing costs and delaying a project.
