For the last couple of months I have been developing a program, that let's you run 4D or 5D animations of building process using Google Sketchup and OnTime project scheduling tool (found on: http://www.tdteam.com/ontime/
This tool connect the 3D elements in Google Sketchup to tasks in a project schedule. When all elements are connected the animation can be started, which will animate building process according to the data inputted in the schedule.
You can download the rbs script that you have to place in your plugins folder on the web address below:http://www.tdteam.com/ontime5d/skp/ontime5d.rbs
(ruby plugin file)http://www.tdteam.com/ontime5d/skp/bridge.skp
(model of a bridge that is ready for animation)http://www.tdteam.com/ontime5d/skp/skp.zip

Just to be transparent: Zip file contains ontime5d.rbs and bridge.skp
