BIM Management tips for better BIM

Five Steps To Better BIM Management

In the five videos below we explain how to create an impressive BIM Execution Plan (BEP), agree on a simple visual BIM scope (using Level of Information Need), quickly manage BIM tasks and verify against your BIM requirements [5 VIDEOS]

1) HOW TO CREATE A BIM EXECUTION PLAN (BEP)

It is essential for all project participants to achieve a common agreement for BIM standards and BIM processes.

So important that governments are mandating the use of BIM Execution Plans (BEPs) as a tool to standardize workflows.

However some BEP workflows have been unsuccessful 😒 

Let’s find out about a more successful approach to creating online BIM Execution Plans!:  

2) How to create a simple BIM project Scope

If you ask multiple people on a project what their BIM scope is you will probably get different answers.

Unfortunately unclear BIM responsibilities usually leads to missing and/or duplicate scope and lots of wasted effort.

Here we discuss the steps to follow in order to gain a much clearer scope and true agreement between all project stakeholders.

We start by agreeing on WHY we are doing BIM in the first place!!

Then, to following the Level of Information Need approach, we understand how much BIM is actually required (the geometry, information and documentation for each customer), when they need it and also importantly who is responsible for delivering it.

3) How to sequence BIM tasks with your teams

If teams model elements all at the same time or out of sequence the result will be many thousands of clashes

Clashes cause rework and is a huge waste in what should be a more efficient (BIM) workflow. 

Using a System Priority Structure helps teams agree on the most optimal sequence and avoid the problems.

 The benefit is following a Clash Avoidance workflow rather than a Clash Detection workflow: 

4) How to manage your BIM tasks

Asking for progress updates from your team members can be like “pulling teeth” 🦷 

We see huge improvements when using a simple BIM Kanban board to manage the BIM tasks:

5) How to verify the BIM model against your BIM contract requirements

It’s usually a challenge to understand what the original requirements even were! 

Here we share some final tips to consolidate BIM requirements and explain how to verify the models against the original requirements:
