GET THE LEVERAGE BIM DATA FT. SHAREPOINT E-BOOK

Overview

Construction and engineering projects are complex and dynamic, involving multiple workflows that must be coordinated and managed effectively. However, the vast amount of information involved in these projects, combined with the various file formats and disconnected processes, can lead to inconsistencies in the building data. This can result in significant environmental and financial issues, such as scalability, revenue loss, misaligned project prioritization, and increased carbon emissions.

The Leverage BIM Data Ft. SharePoint, Verifi3D Special Edition is a guide to BIM model coordination and checking for improved workflow efficiency in building design. The book aims to help building designs teams get the most out of their Common Data Environment (CDE)/file repository – SharePoint. Gain insights into the future of BIM model checking and collaboration and the role of Verifi3D and SharePoint in shaping it!

Integrated workflows: A must In the digital transformation of the AEC industry

Integrated workflows: A must In the digital transformation of the AEC industry

In the not-so-distant past, the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry relied on pen and paper, with information meticulously stored in bulky file cabinets. Fast forward to today, and the industry has undergone a remarkable digital transformation. Traditional paper drawings have given way to sophisticated CAD files, and organizations across all sectors are embracing digital tools to enhance efficiency, sustainability, and accuracy. This shift is not just a trend; it’s a fundamental evolution driven by global standards, revolutionizing the way construction projects are conceived, implemented, and supervised.

Seamless collaboration

In the dynamic world of construction projects, effective communication and decision-making hinge on having accurate, up-to-date information at your fingertips. Yet, translating visionary concepts into practical realities often encounters resistance, particularly when navigating the complexities of change management. One of the key challenges lies in the divergent tools and systems used across different departments, leading to the potential for errors and inefficiencies stemming from outdated files.

Imagine a scenario where data harmonization is automated, seamlessly aligning information across the board. This integration would establish an ecosystem where departments collaborate effortlessly, sharing data, workflows, and insights in real-time. Such cohesion would not only streamline operations but also proactively refine data, eliminating the risk of disjointed workflows and ensuring that the right information is always available when and where it’s needed most.

openBIM and open innovation possibilities

openBIM is the superhero of construction information exchange, wielding open standards like Industry Foundation Classes (IFC), Information Delivery Specification (IDS) and Construction to Operations Building information exchange (COBie) to simplify the complex dance of data sharing. With these standards, BIM and other crucial information can flow seamlessly between software and stakeholders, ensuring a harmonious symphony of consistent information quality and effortless collaboration.

Integrated workflows

In the dynamic world of construction, openBIM and open innovation are revolutionizing collaboration. Industry leaders are driving a wave of streamlined workflows, accelerating project timelines, and enhancing outcomes. Integrated project delivery now demands a new level of data synchronization. Transparent, accessible information is key to project success, empowering teams to make informed decisions.

One of the key advantages of openBIM is its flexibility. Teams can use their preferred software as long as it complies with openBIM standards. This ensures seamless collaboration and data sharing throughout the project lifecycle.

At the heart of this transformation are people. Technology, data, and solutions converge to enable integrated workflows that reduce time wasted on file version searches, improve model coordination, and enhance project data accumulation. These workflows support both internal and external teams, enabling real-time cooperation, improving communication, and boosting productivity.

Embracing openBIM and open innovation is not just about adopting new tools; it’s about fostering a culture of collaboration and innovation that drives the industry forward.

Opportunities for digital transformation

Integrating workflows presents a fascinating array of challenges. From the intricate web of connecting systems across departments to the ever-present concerns of data and cybersecurity, compatibility issues, and the costs involved in integrating diverse IT systems, the landscape is complex. Furthermore, implementing integrated workflows necessitates a shift in end-users’ work habits, a thorough update of organization-wide processes, and comprehensive training on new tools.

Steady goes with BIM process management

A robust BIM validation tool is like a silent hero, stepping in to tackle challenges with precision and finesse, ensuring smooth operations without causing a stir. Operating in the cloud, it effortlessly utilizes predefined templates to automate model-checking, offering a seamless and customizable experience. It seamlessly integrates standards into workflows, becoming an indispensable part of any project’s success.
