5.07 Why Reengineering Processes, Policies & Supply Chains Are Critical for BIM Projects

Wednesday, April 3, 2013
2:15 PM-3:15 PM
Track: Council/Industry Specific
Format: General Presentation
Organization: IFMA
Knowledge Level: 300 level
Session Description: The number of stakeholders and their specific software products used in creating a Building Information Model during a capital project is much more complex than simply the architect creating a Revit model to be integrated with an IWMS/CMMS application. Issues that need to be considered by corporate real estate and facility managers include:
  • How do you procure a BIM-capable design and construction team?
  • Who owns the model and intellectual property rights?
  • Is your workforce prepared with the knowledge and technology necessary to consume and utilize the BIM model and its data? How will you ensure you get the data you want out of the model?
  • How can you improve systems integration with data interoperability?
  • You’d like to use tablets and wireless devices – what security issues with IT and data will you face?

This session will provide an overview of the value of BIM throughout it’s lifecycle for the Owner/Operator/FM along with the above mentioned issues, and walk through the need and design for a well crafted change management plan used to help prepare you and your organization to successfully implement BIM technologies.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand BIM fundamentals.
  • Learn why BIM requires a well developed change management plan.
  • Understand how to develop a change management plan.
  • Learn what IFMA is doing to provide educational content related to this subject.
  •     Presentation
