(BIM-3072) The Constructible Process – Moving Beyond BIM to Build with Confidence

Level: Intermediate
Venue: 2019 AACE International Conference & Expo, June 16-19, 2019, New Orleans, LA, USA

Abstract: Today’s construction stakeholders don’t care how fancy a building information model (BIM) is, they care about having buildings done on time with minimized overruns or mistakes. Traditionally, BIM has been used as a design tool to give architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals insight into the design and construction of buildings and infrastructure. But, there's more to consider beyond just BIM. A constructible process integrates the complete building lifecycle to manage construction activities, team collaboration and improve overall productivity. By combining design, estimation, project management and engineering models into a collaboration platform, data from different sources can be combined and used to make more informed decisions before build and beyond. This integrated process helps all stakeholders to have complete visibility with the project so that they can coordinate before they get onsite. This data-centric process also provides construction stakeholders with analytics and business intelligence that can be used to not just build with confidence but also optimize their entire business process, procedures and operations.
