BIM – ‘I’ for Intuitive

DebunkTheBIM

Got a bit surprised with the two countries I targeted, my PM offerings scored much higher than the BIM skills I put on the table. Could say, it is a sad time for good BIM-mers with degrees and experience. Past are the times when the only good BIM was the one you had to work hard for.

When is BIM not BIM?

Building Information Management

BIM, Building Information Modeling, actually consists of three M’s… BIM3 if you will… Modeling, Models, and Management. Major culture change across all stakeholders must take place before BIM can be understood, let alone practiced, on a widespread basis.

Marginalized BIM

Collaborative Construction

My friend and colleague Peter Cholakis, with whom I have co-presented in the past, has a post up related to the marginalization of BIM. As I mentioned in my comment, I think the solution to "marginalized BIM" is an effective IPD Procurement Program that owners can use to procure BIM enabled infrastructure from integrated BIM enabled teams capable of operating in an IPD environment.
