BIM Survey for Building Product Manufacturers

  2. 2. VELUX BIM model in ArchiCAD POTENTIAL OF BIM The Virtual Building™ model concept (source: Graphisoft SE | thermodynamical features, product- and manufacturer- ► SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS OF BACKGROUND specified data, prices, descriptions of premises. It can handle BUILDING MATERIALS all these data stored in one plan (file). After completing the At the first steps of the designing process, designers don’tSince the second half of the 80s, companies developing planning and construction process, these data can be easily need detailed knowledge and definition of the products useddesign software (CAD) have concentrated on evolving tools accessible when necessary. for the building, however, it is a fact, that it is impossible tofor users that are quicker to work with, in order to speed up design without this information. As a BIM plan is designed fordesign and – first of all - drawing techniques. Developments From the second half of the 90s more and more software the whole lifetime of a building, where precise informationas well as the practice thereof were mainly aimed for relieving developing companies have recognized the point and the about the building constituents are more necessary (e.g. forold manual techniques (drawing board, parallel ruler, clack ink advantage of the concept. In accordance with this, at the questions concerning building up or operation), therefore,pen, etc.). Graphisoft, one of the leading software developer beginning of the new millennium, the new technology of BIM manufacturer-specified planning equals high added value.companies, has been developing software based on the idea (Building Information Modeling) spread exponentially in AEC ► EFFECTIVE, PROFESSIONAL PLANNINGof Virtual BuildingTM from the very start. sector (Architecture Engineering and Construction). Not only Using BIM software, more detailed and realistic models can designers recognized the advantages of this technology, but be created. The construction of the 3D model, completed in a All relevant information (fig.1.) is tractable with the help of also investors, constructors, manufacturers and building single file, allows appearance on the section, the façade andvirtual building models.

These can be technological features of It is essential that a BIM solution for a building materialthe elements, characteristics of the product, prices, etc. manufacturer provides virtues for designers that makes► FASTER WORK designing and documentation more efficient and rich inA building goes through many changes and modifications information. A survey shows the following results:throughout its lifetime. With the help of a manufacturer-specified BIM solution, it is faster to modify the original design. ► How important do you think it is in the manufacturer-► GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN PLANNING AHEAD specified BIM software solution that you don’t need to doIt is easier to produce variations of designs that help the further research for product features?architect/procurer to decide for the ideal one in reasonable On the evaluation scale rated from 1 to 10, almost half (49%)execution as well as in expenses, not only at the beginning of of the designers rated it as a very important feature in athe designing process, but also within, due to the added manufacturer-specified solution that there is no need forinformation. further research about technological parameters of a product► QUICK HANDLING OF DOCUMENTATION or range of products, and only less than a tenth (5,7%) rated itWith the help of a manufacturer-specified BIM solution, as unimportant.documentation, preparation of consignations and listing canbecome automated.► EFFECTIVE MARKETINGDetailed and realistic, manufacturer-specified BIM solutionshelps you achieve more effective and convincing marketing.► DECREASING RISKS, DECREASING LOSSESThe preparation of 3D plans, the analysis thereof (e.g. crash Detailed list of Hörmann BIM object (garage door) in ArchiCADtest), creation of more detailed and realistic plans and its highlevel of added information decreases significantly the risksand possible extra expenses that may arise in the future.► ESTIMATION OF TIME (4D) AND EXPENSES (5D)A well prepared BIM plan is suitable to set the time ofreaching a given construction stage correlating to eachconstruction phase.

According to our results, almost half of the designers have learnt about a new manufacturer (46%), or about a new product (53%) using a manufacturer-specified BIM solution.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF BIM TECHNOLOGY FOR MANUFACTURERS? © manuBIMsoft Ltd. 2012 –
  5. 5.

Onlyroughly a tenth (11,9%) feels that a sufficient amount ofsolutions is available for him/her. The answers show that manufacturers prefer rather different tools to the ones designers would need. For instance, while printed documentations (1. 7.) and informative brochures (2. 10.) are highly over-rated by manufacturers, planning manuals (4. 1.) or complex, manufacturer-specified solutions in CAD software (7. 2.) The survey was completed between 3 November 2011 and 31 December 2011 are highly under-rated. using separate online questionnaires for manufacturers and for designers. 186 designers and 44 manufactures provided answers to them. The survey is not of a representative nature.
