#AU2012 #UKBimCrew AB3466-R You Want to Change What? A Discussion of Critical Path Decisions in the BIM Workflow

Topic One : Trust

Only lawyers seem to be worried about data exchange. Interesting that we have been sharing 2D files for years, there now seems to be a sudden panic over 3D files.

Statement of fitness for purpose of data to cover liability of use.

Many modern projects can only be represented in 3D and not 2D.

Collections of micro teams based around specific areas to see fast turn around on a model data set.

Staff not trusting the tool itself to do the things that it does well. People are checking things that do not need to be checked because they are now controlled.

An opportunity to empower people. Both the new intern with their enthusiasm for the tool and the knowledge of the experienced person. But what were we are moving to a knowledge based culture rather than an experience based one.

Overcome the disconnects between old processes to the new. Challenges of where drawing sets are at a point in time, #tip set up the sheets before.

Topic Two :

Topic Three : Tools

Set expectations of the tools and what is your understanding of what you mean a deliverable to be. Relate everything to cost. Owner pays the penalty of cost.

Build towards the general methods of manufacturing and creating a performance spec to which you can hold the sub contractor but allows them to show their capabilities.

Do the tools make “un buildable” objects, quite often yes!

The panacea of BIM is the final products contains nothing from the design team, its all contractor and manufacturer content.

Set vision for now but the future is unknown.

Having a programmer on board as the latest member of the construction team. Now essential.

Topic Four : Communication

A lot of grey areas in roles where there is a cross over in responsibilities. Wearing multiple hats and bridging process gaps.

Topic Five : Continuity

You have to take an interest in whats going on around in parallel industries. The transfer of knowledge in a high speed and intense teams, how to maintain the team. An engagement issue and overcoming the generation of headphones?

Its behavioral issue and not a technology one.

About Shaun Farrell

I have been involved in the construction sector since 1986 and over the years I have seen things change dramatically. Much of the change has been directly as a result of technology. This blog will be about the key combinations of People, Process and Technology. Any views expressed here are strictly my own.
