Consider a construction project where a team of Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) companies are obliged to a seamless and constant distribution of drawings and BIM models with live updates. How do these teams sync up with discussions regarding various aspects of the project itself?
If the project details require any changes or any updates, coherent standards are of absolute importance. However, the set of standards defined by one set of engineers may not resonate with the collection of standards established by the rest of the stakeholders. Creating a domino effect, this may impede BIM Execution Plans (BEP) or even the whole project.
In the times of lightning-fast internet, one can minimize delays of such sort with the help of a common ground for information exchange. planBIM is an app developed under the guidance of BIM engineers specifically designed to tackle similar if not identical issues. It provides a dynamic approach to the technical conflicts that could arise as a project evolves. In this context, planBIM has been developed to bring about a refined way to implement BIM. The app brings flexibility in the experience of sharing strategies, exchanging files and updating changes as per the requirements between a set of collaborators.
In many instances, a lengthy set of documents describe the information about project details. Due to our current era of lower attention spans to precise details, these lengthy documents may delay a perfect head start for teams. planBIM, however, is equipped to display critical aspects of a project like the details, location and the scale to bring any new team member up to speed. Every project consists of modules which have been strategically designed to cater to various stakeholders of the project for streamlining BIM procedures.
The first module we come across is Scoper, which assists in the scope of work assigned to various firms. The module presents an easy way to assign responsibilities to the members and companies involved in the project. To avoid compatibility issues, multiple BIM software which has ongoing usage on a project can be labelled, along with their versions and the aspect of their utilization across BIM. These features exist to simplify the necessary overall scope of any project and also define a way of communicating them.
Level of Development is an industry-standard that is used to gauge the content and reliability of BIM elements at various stages in design and construction. The geometric and structural definitions define the content, while the accuracy and quality entrusted to that content would describe reliability.
