Purpose:
Models created in Building Information Modeling (BIM) are rapidly replacing standard computer-aided design (CAD) sheets as the "final deliverable" in the architectural/engineering/construction industry. One of BIM's key features is its ability to "carry" data or information about the elements/objects in the model. BIM data can address high level information such as a structure's name and location, to the very detailed, such as the life expectancy of an installed light bulb. This class will address the uses of BIM data, the methodologies for determining data needs, and the implementation of data requirements in BIM projects. The class is intended to foster discussions regarding data requirements among design, construction, and operations stakeholders.
Description:
This course is an overview of the BIM data requirement needs for all stakeholders. Class exercises will facilitate discussions to identify minimal BIM data each stakeholder requires and their respective workflows. Exercises will demonstrate that overpopulation of data is counterproductive and costly. What is important and cost effective is an interoperable dataset among the stakeholders. Various agencies' data collection activities, Executive Orders, and vendor-specific solutions will be presented to further illustrate the need to make data decisions early. Proper archival and maintenance of BIM models will also be covered to reinforce that the data in the model stays relevant, even after the project is "completed."
Prerequisites:
