The architecture, engineering, and construction industry (AEC) is ever evolving smarter ways to efficiently accomplish more with less. Within this evolution, is a drive to better integrate all the disciplines that impact the phases of concept – design – start up – production – close out – and sustainment. Historically, the AEC industry has been stove-piped among stake holders (owners, primes, and subcontractors) AND throughout all the phases. Building Information Modeling (BIM) dissolves those stratifications by creating a transparent communication path to design and manage programs from the baseline design through the sustainment of the completed product.
BIM is not a new technology. It is a degree study in such major universities as Yale’s School of Architecture and Purdue’s School of Construction Technology. BIM has been around since the 1980’s and has been heavily focused on design and design clash detection. This webinar presents BIM as an industry best practice and sequentially includes information required for design, 3D modeling, 4D Scheduling, 5D Cost Management, 6D Asset Management, XD future dimensions from the perspective of the integrated program manager of the very near future.
