Thanks a recent survey (AN ONTOLOGY OF THE USES OF BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING, A Dissertation in Architectural Engineering By
Ralph G. Kreider
© 2013 Ralph G. Kreider) that defined BIM uses and looked a actual project, we now have a much better picture of the “BIM State of the Union”.
BIM is the life-cycle management of the built environment. Note how many respondents were using BIM for asset management… less than 10%.
Until there is a robust focus upon the business process competencies required for life-cycle management of the built environment, and an associated ontology… little substantial progress can be made.
So…. how does one begin to develop an ontology for BIM / Life-cycle management of the built environment?
Well.. help me draw on a napkin?
