Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands

  1. 1. COLLABORATIVE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING WITH IFC IN THE NETHERLANDS Data sharing ≠ collaboration | Léon van Berlo
  2. 2. COLLABORATIVE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING WITH IFC IN THE NETHERLANDS Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands 08 April 2015
  3. 3. A DUTCH GUY IN MANCHESTER AND THIS IS THE REFERENCE.…. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  4. 4. SORRY FOR…. …bad English …proverbs …spelling errors in this presentation …rude language …sarcastic jokes (when in doubt: it was sarcasm) …giving an opinion about the quality of your questions.… …and all the other stuff (caravans, bicycles, other coaches, etc..) But thanks for having me here! 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  5. 5. NETHERLANDS ORGANISATION FOR APPLIED SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH TNO Helmond Eindhoven Rijswijk Delft Leiden The Hague Zeist Utrecht Groningen Soesterberg
  6. 6. INTERNATIONAL OFFICES / AGENCIES Offices Agencies Trends Transitions
  7. 7. THE POWER OF TNO FROM IDEA TO INNOVATION Trends Transitions
  8. 8. TNO IN NUMBERS 2013 Number of employees (effective average) Consolidated turnover 3.276 € 564 million Trends Transitions
  9. 9. ON THE BIM SIDE… Core team of 8 BIM experts (broad spectrum) Second ring of 10 – 15 part time BIM related experts Additional special departments for energy, health, safety, etc. Great BIM track record: First reference of ‘BIM’ in publication (1992) BIM Handbook in 1988 (!) Worked on IFC since beginning Involved on several levels at BuildingSMART 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  10. 10. HOW ABOUT YOU? Architects? Engineers? Contractors? BIM Managers? Policy makers? Modellers? Managers? Are you ready for controversial statements? 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  11. 11. START WITH THE CONCLUSIONS: Collaboration is not the same as data sharing You need to know what (and how) you / the other person need(s) Domain models are the master models It is not about a theoretical perfect BIM 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  12. 12. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  13. 13. LET’S START AT THE BEGINNING….. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  14. 14. 1998 (?) 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands “SHARED DATA MODEL” shared data model
  15. 15. COMMON MISCONCEPTION: Shared data model is NOT equal to: Shared data(base) Shared BIM model instance Shared data model comes from the need to share/distribute data in a standardized way…. “let’s agree this is a door” shared data model == creating agreements (interoperability)
  16. 16. BIM DATA FLOW THROUGH STANDARDS: REDUCING INTERFACES
  17. 17. YES, I’VE SEEN THE PICTURES…
  18. 18. 2008: BIMSERVER.ORG 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  19. 19. 2009: 1ST RELEASE 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  20. 20. 2010/11: NATIONAL BIMSERVER PILOT 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  21. 21. 2012: REPORT 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  22. 22. THE PILOT / RESEARCH Look at how information flows in a project Look at how which tools are used Research: compare ‘homogeneous’ software with ‘own choice’ software 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  23. 23. 26
  24. 24. “THERE IS NO CENTRAL MODEL” (IN A PROJECT)
  25. 25. DENMARK 2006:
  26. 26. DENMARK 2008:
  27. 27. 30
  28. 28. 31
  29. 29. NL 2012:
  30. 30. NO ROUNDTRIP (import/export in a chain of tools)
  31. 31. OBSERVATIONS: “There is no loss of data using IFC”… It is all in the native software. The question is what data you want to share (using IFC). What data do you need to do your job? Then we look if that is in IFC (and in your tool after import) Not a single IFC ‘loss of data’-issue occurred during the experiments. In a homogeneous software environment, users felt that all team members should have equal BIM software modeling expertise. When using the concept of reference models, not all project team members collaborating in a project need to have the same level of BIM expertise. 34
  32. 32. AND TO CLOSE UP…. The use of a reference model concept with IFC can lower the needed BIM competences for a project partner to be able to collaborate in a way that is sufficiently effective for the entire project team. All respondents in this experiment were strongly convinced that choosing project partners based on their competence of a specific software tool, prior to their engineering competence, is never preferred 35
  33. 33. FOUND CONCLUSION: WORKING (LIVE) IN A ‘CENTRAL’ MODELSERVER HAS MORE DOWNSIDES THAN ADVANTAGES. (OWNERSHIP OF OBJECTS, LEGAL ASPECTS, BIM MANAGER, CHANGE REQUESTS, ETC...) 36
  34. 34. BIMSERVER TODAY:
  35. 35. IN THE MEANTIME…. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  36. 36. STATE OF BIM COLLABORATION IN 2015 Working with ‘Reference model concept’ is the norm Main input for BuildingSMART International IFC4 Referenceview MVD Working with IFC is like sliced bread Reference model concept is integral part of National BIM Guidelines IFC usage and understanding has rapidly grown Making a BIM is not the goal Collaboration is seen as something else than just sharing data! 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  37. 37. “A CENTRAL DATASTORE STIMULATES WRONG BEHAVIOUR”
  38. 38. EVERYONE BRINGS THEIR CRAFTSMANSHIP AND EXPERTISE TO ACTUALLY COLLABORATE
  39. 39. THE REAL QUESTIONS ARE: - WHAT DO I NEED TO DO MY JOB? - WHAT DO OTHERS NEED FROM ME TO DO THEIRS?
  40. 40. SOME EXAMPLES 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  41. 41. EXAMPLE: SEVERAL MODELING TOOLS Several modelling tools used All sharing parts of the model as IFC Quality checks Filtering objects to create a new view For good coordination you still need to know who created what object So even in a single database you still have separate models…. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  42. 42. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  43. 43. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  44. 44. EXAMPLE: CONTRACTOR USING SUPPLIER MODELS Architectural and Construction model as a base Suppliers deliver IFC models to replace original model parts 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands

  46. 46. EXAMPLE: COMPARE DESIGN / ENGINEERING Contractor and lime stone supplier Comparing models 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  47. 47. EXAMPLE: 3 IFC EXPORTS FROM 1 MODEL Because that is what collaboration is about! 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  48. 48. IFC Coordination view IFC 2nd order space boundaries IFC explicit geometry
  49. 49. EXAMPLE: VOIDS Exchange openings Openings are not a lack of data; they are there. Some people need them. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands

  59. 59. BIM EXECUTION PLANS / PROTOCOLS DO NOT WORK 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  60. 60. THE REAL QUESTIONS ARE: - WHAT DO I NEED TO DO MY JOB? - WHAT DO OTHERS NEED FROM ME TO DO THEIRS?
  61. 61. 2014: BIM PROTOCOL GENERATOR 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands http://bimprotocolgenerator.com/
  62. 62. BIM PROTOCOL GENERATOR Ask others about their preferred way of working What data do you need to do your job? How do you want it? What tools do you use? And what data structures? Protocol generator merges the answers to a concept protocol. Team discusses the issues and transforms it to final protocol. “Protocol generator is a team building machine” 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  63. 63. COLLABORATION: FORGET ABOUT THE BLACK BOX!
  64. 64. BEWARE OF THE GATEKEEPER Léon van Berlo Bouw Informatie Modellering
  65. 65. HE DOES NOT DO THE WORK… Léon van Berlo Bouw Informatie Modellering
  66. 66. 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
  67. 67. LESSONS LEARNED Don’t fight fragmentation; embrace it Domain/discipline models are the master models Collaboration is not the same as data sharing You need to know what (and how) the other person needs You need to know what yóu need from others It is not about a theoretical perfect BIM 08 April 2015Collaborative design and engineering with IFC in the Netherlands
