17@caseyrutlandBIM Myths & Pitfalls – Avoiding bad outcomes…Myth No.1 - I have to spend £10k per person to ‘do’ BIM.Myth No.2 - BIM is just a 3D model.Myth No.3 - This means more work for me & it takes longer.Myth No.4 - Revit = BIM
19@caseyrutlandBIM Myths & Pitfalls – Avoiding bad outcomes…Pitfall No.1 - Hollywood BIMPitfall No.2 - Over-selling your own capabilityPitfall No.3 - Over-modellingPitfall No.4 - Don’t ignore the challenge. You must respond to yourbuyers and to theirs. An increasing number will want BIMdeliverables or workflow

25@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your Projects(Pre)Fabricationo Evolving design data into pre-fabrication – avoidremodelling from scratch• Cheaper• Quicker• Easiero Information fed intoprocurement programmeo Constructability checking
26@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsConstructiono Easier 4D sequencing.o Use of design data as opensharable datao Integrated supply chain datao Potential for shorterprogrammeo Potential for saferconstruction throughsimulationo Asset tagging & trackingo Fewer RFI’s
27@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsOperation &Maintenanceo Fully linked asset informationmodelo Ability to run scenariosimulationo Remote access to all virtualrepresentationso Links to the BMSo More efficient operation.
28@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your ProjectsDemo.Refurbishmento Modifications use originaldesign criteriao The ability to simulateproposed changes.o Full asset information modellisting material volumes andrecyclabilityo Deconstruction informationheld within model
30@caseyrutlandBIM Benefits – Your Companyo More control, greater QA.o Easier access to informationo Fewer resources/ more work undertaken.o Opportunities open to larger projects.But don’t…o Wait till 2016 and find you’ve missed out on BIM.o Assume everything you hear is true. Lots of people profess to be ahead ofthe game, whereas the reality is somewhat different.o Presume that you can buy BIM in a box. It’s not just about software.
35@caseyrutlandBIM Sociology - The culture of integrationInvest in your people and treat it like a business tool rather than anadd-on.
36@caseyrutlandBIM Tools - They’re not always what you think…“The first rule of any technology used in a business isthat automation applied to an efficient operation willmagnify the efficiency. The second rule is thatautomation applied to an inefficient operation willmagnify the inefficiency”Bill Gates

But make thesteps small and manageable projects that work in BIM.Think about the i in BIM and know how information travels in your firm;Who drives it? Where? And why?Seek out as many events as possible. Go to those that seem the best.Surf the Web. Discover your Regional BIM hub.Check what technology you need and who can offer it.
