Lean Construction (LC) and Building Information Modeling (BIM) are two approaches that help to optimize, structure, monitor and control processes better. As a method of LC, Takt Time Planning (TTP) and Takt Control (TC) can lead to an increase in productivity and value creation, as the associated processes are an essential part of the value chain in the construction industry. But while there are already some solutions to link these methods in real life, simulation games in education are currently mostly done analogously and detached from the BIM model. As a result, the benefits of BIM in terms of regularly updated building data are not fully exploited within the simulation game and thus not made clear to the participants. This paper examines how digital support for TC can be integrated within a LC simulation game. For this purpose, an analogue building model is linked to an associated 3D building model through QR codes and enriched with information about the stage of completion during the process of TC. The possibility of linking both models shown here manages to highlight the advantages of the BIM method and inspires the participants to apply this to their projects.
