Learning outcomes

1. Define BIM, describe the drivers that led to the development of BIM, and explain the potential benefits to an organisation in adopting BIM.
2. Define what constitutes an Information Model, define key BIM terminology and identify BIM maturity levels.
3. Describe the advantages of BIM/Lean/IPD compared with traditional project delivery models, including the effects of autocratic information management compared with the benefits of collaborative models and the benefits of BIM/Lean/IPD to industry professionals, clients and facilities managers.
4. Describe the project information development cycle, with emphasis on specification, production, exchange and maintenance of project information, including Clear definition of requirements and the importance of consistent information exchanges; the need of the supply chain to agree a BIM execution plan and the benefits of an collaborative information exchange platform; Clearly defined information supply and management responsibilities; BIM and the project life cycle – using BIM technology to consider facilities management as an important factor in design decisions.
5. Explain the necessity for open and interoperable solutions, with emphasis on adopting openBIM as opposed to using propriety products and systems and what Model View Definitions (MVDs), Information Delivery Manuals (IDMs), buildingSmart Data Dictionaries (bSDD) and open BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) are, and the benefits they provide.
6. Identify an organisations capability of working with BIM/Lean/IPD and the factors that define organisational BIM/Lean/IPD maturity. Principles of evaluating the readiness (concerns and benefits) of specific organisations for adopting BIM/Lean/IPD and the data and intellectual property security issues in adopting BIM/Lean/IPD.
