BIM FUNDAMENTALS / Defining BIM - Can we agree?
« on: March 16, 2017, 03:35:03 pm »
  • Model (the product of the modelling process – noun)
    An object-based digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility. The Building Information Model serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility, forming a reliable basis for decisions during its lifecycle from inception, design, construction and onward.
  • Modelling (the process of modelling – verb)
    A collection of authorized model uses, workflows, and modeling methods used to achieve specific, repeatable, and reliable information results from the final product, or the building information model. Modeling methods affect the quality of the information generated from the model. When and why a model is used, and shared, impacts the effective and efficient use of BIM for desired project outcomes and decision support.
  • Management (the definition of data and process management – noun)
    Building Information Management supports the data standards and data requirements for BIM use. Data continuity allows for the reliable exchange of information in a context where both sender and receiver understand the information. In addition, this data further supports ongoing maintenance of, and changes to, the data inherent in the operations and management of the physical contexts that it represents.

STANDARDS & GUIDELINES / Re: Standard Template & General Use

I'd be interested to see what would be suggested if we had more varied but common place model uses to test Execution Planning on... I agree that templates are important, as well as frameworks, but I've seen many good European BIM execution plans that are reverse engineered based on the desired outcome by the project team rather than just an individual firm/discipline. Some of these went so far as to define the Protocol for multiple software suites, as well as multiple exchange mappings. Just have to do your research to find the gems abroad!

WORKFLOW & COLLABORATION / Current M.O. for exchanging information

What is your current method of operation for exchanging information?

Could you foresee a workflow that would not require a "centralized" database or model?

What do you know about the Linked-Data approach?

I think it also depends on scope...

IF we are talking Levels 2 & 3 pan-Canadian, or pan-industry, I agree that it Level 2 would have to be mostly present for Level 3 to succeed.

If we are talking at the level of let's say an international architecture or engineering firm, or a singular multi-million dollar project, I think that Level 3 could be set up within a specific parameter as a full leap forward, regardless of existing status.
