Federated and linked approach to BIM Data Management and BIM based workflow in construction

Speaker: Leif Granholm - BIM Ambassador at Trimble

The focus in BIM has been on data creation so far, but is currently shifting to data consumption. But how this consumption is going to happen and be incorporated in the overall construction workflow is still unclear.

In this webinar, BIM Ambassador Leif Granholm from Trimble presents a concept on how that can be done in the framework of the current construction industry without any big disruption of current practices and structures in the industry.

Contrary to previous beliefs, transitioning from human readable documents to machine readable data can and needs to happen gradually for people to learn the new technology needed. Using machine readable data to specify contracts is needed for automation and mechanization to advance in the industry.
