Asset Information Model (AIM)
This is a model that describes the information management processes for the operational phase of a project. It compiles all the data that is necessary to support asset management.
Asset Information Requirements (AIR)
These requirements describe the graphical and non-graphical information for an Asset Information Model. This information is documented in the client’s brief and is necessary for them to be able to operate and maintain the asset. It describes the purpose of the information, who it is produced for, as well as when and how it is produced.
The Asset Information Requirements at bimspot is specifically designed to help you to define and execute this process seamlessly in order to gather all necessary information.
An attribute is a unit of data that describes a particular characteristic of an entity.
BIM Collaboration Format (BCF)
A BCF is an open-file format based on XML. It allows for different parties to add comments to an IFC BIM model. This simplifies and aids collaboration between parties working on the model as it allows them to easily raise concerns, resolve problems and provide answers to questions.
An exciting development is BCF will soon be integrated into bimspot to facilitate more effective communication amongst key roleplayers.
BIM Execution Plan (BEP)
A BEP is a document that describes how BIM will be executed on a project, the BIM applications within the project, and all stakeholder duties. A BEP is a direct response to the EIR. This strategy is prepared by suppliers and comprises a pre-contract BIM execution as well as a post-contract BIM execution plan.
With bimspot, the BEP is effortlessly managed to ensure that processes are more efficiently executed including managing information requirements and model checks.
BIM Maturity Levels
These are the levels of complexity and collaboration that building information modelling can take. Because BIM is so broad, these levels help to describe the form of modelling.
For example, Level 0 BIM would refer to unmanaged CAD and 2D drawings without all the common standards and procedures whereas Level 3 BIM refers to a more complex, collaborative project model with 3D, 4D, 5D, and 6D information.
An additional legal agreement devised by the Construction Industry Council (CIC) that can be incorporated into professional services appointments, construction contracts, subcontracts and novation agreements. It is a requirement for Level 2 public BIM projects.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
BIM is a very broad term describing the use of data and information to create a virtual representation of the characteristics of a building. It is the process of creating a digital model of a building or asset with all of its physical and functional characteristics using object-oriented information.
BuildingSMART Data Dictionary
BuildingSMART Data Dictionary (bSDD) is a framework or structure of object concepts and their properties.
Common Data Environment (CDE)
The Common Data Environment is one specific location holding all the information pertaining to a particular project. It is particularly helpful in defining the requirements of each team member, monitoring their progress, validating data entries, and recording all activities from the various team members.
This central source of information enhances collaboration and helps to avoid mistakes like duplication.
Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie)
COBie is an open standard that provides a way to share non-graphical information about a project. Data and communication such as operation, construction, design, demolition and other relevant data are usually added to it during the project.
