Jerry Laiserin - BIM: Building Information Modeling or Building Industry (Re-)Modeling?


Location: Architecture Hall 147

Wednesday, April 23, 2008 @ 6:30 PM

BIM is not software. Software is not BIM. BIM is a process of representation, communication and collaboration. Automating that process does require software ócall it BIMwareóbut automation through such BIMware is not sufficient. Every building industry player must understand what BIM is and is not, the benefits and trade-offs of BIMware, and the resulting effects on all project participantsí risks, rights, roles and responsibilities.
