BIM already plays a vital role in deciding the fate of the AEC industry
The AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction ) industry & Government adopts and embraces BIM very willingly. Why so, because of its capabilities to lessen the cost and enhance quality. Late Andy Grove of Intel called BIM “a strategic inflection point.” So, we are here to understand the usage of connected BIM in the AEC industry/construction industry.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the ultimate focus of building, designing, and operating.
However, do you know what BIM does in this era of connectivity? Moreover, what do we expect by ‘connected BIM’? Also, why do you need such business solutions?
Today’s technologies support advanced BIM processes and disrupt the way of designing and using buildings, and infrastructure. However, for few architects, contractors, engineers, and owners/operators, accepting new technologies is a scary process. They feel it’s a hectic task because it requires:
- Re-training teams
- Keeping your faith in the cloud and mobility
- Doing the inevitable transitions from the comfort zone of 2D into the experience of 3D prototypes and BIM
Anyone can easily win these challenges, though it may seem confusing at first. Connected BIM workflows impact the tasks positively and help to innovate and increase profits.
Here’s how you can capitalize new business possibilities in the construction industry:
Execute resolutions better using data
Using BIM, tremendous amounts of information is capturable creatable and analyzable, allowing you to assess alternatives in real-world circumstances. Having early insight in the design phase promotes “best possible” instead of “best practical” status of completed projects. Powered by the cloud, mobility, generative design, virtual and augmented reality technologies, software is vital in the development and engineering process. It optimizes designs and aids teams in making knowledgeable decisions in a fraction of seconds. Thus, it helps in the construction industry.
Digitization is utmost important
Digitization also plays a significant role in AEC industry. Integrating design and fabricating it, makes the construction process seamless. The digitalization is seen at the construction site, with intelligent machines and mobile devices equipped with a connected BIM cloud platform. Seamless integration of the designing methods translates the thoughts to execution, further saving money and time.
‘Data is the New Oil’ throughout the project lifecycle
Ample amount of data is now available, and connected BIM technology aids to utilize data throughout the lifecycle of the project. You can learn from operational information collected throughout the project for constant enhancement of decision building. Gathering data via sensors and connected devices (IoT) to notify maintenance resolutions results in more dynamic and adaptive operations. Also, it caters future design or process developments in the AEC industry.
Time and Location is no longer a barrier
The project should be the primary focus from the beginning. So, stay in-sync in the office and on the job site, using the cloud mobility. Connected BIM data and systems can unlock capacities to share the access over the lifecycle in real-time without restrictions. And as joint ventures are more prevalent in the construction industry, Autodesk helps connect teams apart from time and location.
Now is the opportunity to embrace connected BIM in the AEC industry/construction industry.
The decision has never been more apparent. So, accommodate to these changes, develop predictability, quality, efficiency, and then accelerate innovation! Otherwise, stay in the past and watch your competitors progress ahead.
