  • Important to note that BIM, by its very definition, was intended for sharing information effectively, and should be a “reliable” source of project information. We know that to be true in the detailing world, but not always in the design world.
  • The model should be shared with all memebers, and should be able to accessed with relative ease. This is certainly not always the case.
  • Concept that the thought process when building a model should be the same as if you were building it physically in the field. When we started drywall modeling, we quickly realized that having a young tech savvy engineer fresh out of school modeling drywall wasn’t adding much value to the field. Sure we built a wall that is clash free, but it wasn’t necessarily detailed in the way that is more efficient to be built. By brining in field foremen to learn how to model and bring their field experience into the model, we drove a10-15% increase in field efficiency.
  • Annimation describes the current process from a designer revit model to flattened 2D drawings for steel fabrication.

    8. 8. What is ‘Lean’ Thinking“ To produce the right product at the right time in the right quantity for the customer and to produce exactly what “ you need and nothing more… Taiichi Ohno, creator of the Toyota Production System
    9. 9. What Exactly is “BIM”?• Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition
