The Top Ten Truths About BIM


The BIM Top Ten
TRUTHS

One:  BIM, in conjunction with Cloud Technology enables efficient building life-cycle management

Two:   BIM embeds robust life-cycle management PROCESSES within technology to enable rapid implementation, scalability, transparency, collabration and assure consistency.

Three:  The ‘I’ within BIM, INFORMATION, in terms of standardized definitions, data architectures, taxonomies, metrics, etc. is a core component of BIM.

Four:  BIM and CLOUD processes/technologies are disruptive and will alter the AEC sector significantly. Everyone’s role changes, as well as how we work and communicate with each other.

Five:  Owners must take the lead, they pay the bills… period.  Government can play a role relative to mandates.

Six:  Efficient, collaborative, and integrated construction delivery methods are central to BIM – Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Job Order Contracting (JOC).. the latter is IPD for renovation, repair and sustainability projects.

Seven:  BIM is NOT 3-D visualization, however 3-D visualization is a valuable component of BIM. BIM is a combination processes from mulitple domains, technology, and product solutions

Eight:  BIM is the integration of CPMS, CMMS, CAFM, ACD (Adaptive Construction Delivery), GIS, BAS, and BPM (bulding product manufactures) methods and data.

Nine:  Software interoperability is a requirement.

Ten:  BIM will make the world of planning, architecture, design, engineering, contruction, operations, and maintenance of the built environment FLAT

This is BIM

One thought on “The Top Ten Truths About BIM

  1. A bit of a modification, recommended by a peer:

    1. All professionals/stakeholders must work collaboratively, and organizations and individuals have to embrace the new technologies and processes or be left behind.

    2. Governments must take the lead; they make the rules, mandates, and regulations. Owners also must take the lead, as they pay the bills, and they have to insist on how the information is presented to them.

    3. BIM takes design and facility life-cycle management to the next level.

    4. Software interoperability is a requirement. All BIM and BIM-relatedsoftware should have the ability to talk to one another. No one piece of software will win the race to be the one and only or be able to do it all.

    5. BIM is NOT 3-D visualization; however 3-D visualization is a valuable component of BIM. BIM is a combination processes from multiple domains, technology, and product solutions

    6. BIM, in conjunction with Cloud Technology enables efficient building life-cycle management

    7. BIM will make the world of planning, architecture, design, engineering, construction, operations, and maintenance of the built environment FLAT.

    8. BIM embeds robust life-cycle management PROCESSES within technology to enable rapid implementation, scalability, transparency, collaboration and assure consistency.

    9. The ‘I’ , INFORMATION is BIM is critical. It’s all about the quality of the Information extracted from the Building Model.

    10. New Contracts and Construction Delivery Methods will emerge. And existing methods such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), and Job Order Contracting (JOC) will be used more generally. Also, the clear ownership of the building model has to be established early on.
