A new video is released on the BIM Framework Channel. The video (9 mins) covers BIM Capability steps, the incremental performance milestones spanning the gap between BIM capability stages
BIM Lenses allow researchers to understand and use BIM Fields and BIM Stages in multiple ways. They achieve that by reducing the complexity of BIM discussions by focusing on a specific topic or by removing unnecessary detail.
The video introduces the capability stages separating Pre-BIM (the status before BIM) from viDCO (virtually integrated Design, Construction and Operation) - the ultimate vision from implementing BIM. These 'revolutionary' stages, and the 'evolutionary' steps separating them, are intended to both clarify and measure BIM adoption.
This video explains the BIM Fields model, its types and components. BIM Fields are useful for identifying stakeholders deliverables and requirements and how these are related.
This video video explains the Tri-axial Framework and its three model components
This video introduces the BIM Framework, its principles and goals. It also explains how the BIM Framework is composed of multiple interconnected part, each simplifying a complex topic, identifying a workflow, or delivering a performance measurement/decision support tool.
This video introduces the term Building Information Modelling (BIM) and provides a comprehensive definition for it. The definition is based on doctoral research and has been adopted by 100s of academics papers published to date. As a ‘functional definition’, it has wide-ranging applications which will be expanded upon in future BIM Framework videos.
