BIM – Just another buzzword or a real change in the Industry? - Professor Arto Kiviniemi

  1. 1. BIM  –  just  another  buzzword     or  a  real  change  in  the  industry?   Prof.  Arto  Kiviniemi   Digital  Architectural  Design   10th  November  2010  
  2. 2. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 Content of the presentation   What  is  BIM?     Some  key  points  in  the  history  of  BIM     Open  BIM  -­‐  Interoperability  and  IFC     Where  is  the  market  now?     Some  obstacles  and  problems     Some  potenNal  benefits     Requirements  &  examples  of  successful  deployment     Future  development  needs?  
  3. 3. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 What is BIM?   Building  InformaNon  Modelling  is  the  process  of   generaNng  and  managing  building  data  during  its  life   cycle  (Wikipedia)       Building  InformaNon  Models   •  are  typically  produced  using  3-­‐dimensional,  dynamic   building  modeling  soVware   •  include  geometry,  properNes,  quanNNes,  spaNal  and   funcNonal  relaNonships  of  building  components,  and   possibly  geographical  informaNon  (GIS)     Integrated  BIM   •  consists  of  several  domain  models;  requirements,   architectural,  structural,  MEP,  producNon,  as-­‐built,   maintenance…   •  requires  interoperability  
  4. 4. © VTT Arto Kiviniemi Information is exchanged as documents - often just on paper - which causes non-value- adding work, friction, data losses and errors Traditional document/2D-based process
  5. 5. © VTT Arto Kiviniemi Information is shared in an exploitable data format directly between different systems Integrated BIM-based process
  6. 6. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 Some key points in the history of BIM   Charles  Eastman:  “The  use  of  computers  instead  of  drawings  in  building   design,”  Journal  of  the  American  InsNtute  of  Architects,  March  1975     Early  building  product  modelling  research  in  1980s  and  1990s   •  RATAS,  Combine  2,  ISO  STEP   •  According  to  Jerry  Laiserin  the  first  implementaNon  of  BIM  was   GraphisoV's  Virtual  Building  concept  in  1987.     Interoperability  -­‐  IAI/buildingSMART   •  Industry  Alliance  for  Interoperability  in  1994;  12  founding  members:   AT&T,  Archibus,  Autodesk,  Carrier,  HOK,  Honeywell,  Jaros  Baum  &  Bolles,   LBNL,    Primavera,  SoVdesk,  Timberline,  and  Tishman   •  InternaNonal  Alliance  for  Interoperability  in  1996;  7  founding  chapters:   French  Speaking,  German  Speaking,  Japan,  Nordic,  North  America,   Singapore  and  UK.  Later  new  chapters:  Australasia,  Benelux,  China,   Iberia,  Italia,  Korea,  Middle  East   •  New  name  “buildingSMART  InternaNonal”  in  2005     Term  BIM  launched  by  Phil  Bernstein  (Autodesk)  in  2002     GSA  and  Senate  ProperNes  started  to  demand  BIM  in  their  projects  in  2007  
  7. 7. Open  BIM  –     Interoperability  and  IFC

  10. 10. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 IFC is only a part of the solution  IFC  is  only  an  enabling  specifica5on;  one   component  for  soVware  development  and   implementaNon    SoluNon  components:   •  Enabling  technologies   •  ICT  infrastructure   •  Enabling  specificaNons   •  SoVware  applicaNons   •  Processes   •  Business  models   •  People   Common ICT development IAI/IFC (+ others) Software industry AEC/FM industry

  16. 16. Some  obstacles  and  problems  
  17. 17. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 Slow adoption of integrated BIM   Fragmented  industry  –  no  strong  drivers   •  Large  number  of  shareholders  with  potenNally   conflicNng  interests  in  every  project   •  Ad-­‐hoc  project  partners  =  no  cumulaNve  learning,   lowest  common  denominator  defines  the  level  of   integraNon   •  Very  few  sponsors  for  common  development   •  “Great  idea.  Tell  me  when  it  is  ready.”     ImplementaNon  of  open  standards  (IFC)  has  been   slow  and  suffered  from  inadequate  quality   •  Too  many  different  versions   •  Some  disappoinNng  results  in  early  projects   17

  19. 19. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 General obstacles   Sub-­‐opNmizaNon   •  Typically  low  bid  in  every  task,  although  minimized   design  and  planning  effort  can  lead  into  significant   addiNonal  costs  in  producNon   •  SeparaNon  of  design  and  producNon  knowledge     Legal  responsibiliNes  –  changes  may  increase   uncertainty  and  risks     In  general  change  adverse  aqtude   •  Known  exisNng  problems,  but  “Rather  the  devil  we   know.”   •  Nobody  wants  to  be  the  first;  “It  is  the  second  mouse   who  gets  the  cheese!”   19
  20. 20. Arto Kiviniemi - Professorial lecture 10/11/2010 Changing business case   Required  investments  and  achieved  benefits  do  not   necessarily  affect  the  same  player   •  More  work  and  added-­‐value  in  the  early  phases  of  the   process,  direct  gains  mainly  in  later  phases   •  Who  wins,  who  loses,  or  should  we  re-­‐think  the   rewards?  –  Good  results  of  IPD  in  USA     No  real  process  owners   •  Systemic  innovaNons  –  changes  affecNng  several  actors   –  are  difficult  to  implement     Most  clients  do  not  know  what  to  demand  and  how   to  control  the  new  processes   •  Missing  baseline  -­‐  difficult  to  compare  offers  and  results   20

  39. 39. Benefits of using BIM on site Problems in the design are apparent – no need to debate on that Total and faster understanding of what to be build Multi-disciplinary information in one place More precise, clear Information flows all the way to the doer Facilitates the development of the construction sequence so that health and safety are taken into account (best way to build in that sense) Trust the model & drawing -> gives opportunity to speed up production (design has to be finalized because it looks finalized in model & in drawings Model updated faster and more often than drawings - Production team do not rely on drawings that could be out of date Model based collaboration & communication Support co-operation between design disciplines Collaboration with subs with model Quicker problem solving Information easily available Quick and accurate quantities Less errors/Mistakes made because of better understanding Able to do proper production planning Johan Stenstrand 39 4.11.2010
