THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION OF DESIGN AND MORE
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the technical design standard that allows, through the creation of a digital three-dimensional model of an object, to assist and support the engineering, the construction and maintenance of an installation.
The three-dimensional model is in fact useful both in the initial phase of this process: through the creation of realistic previews at the designing stage; and for sharing technical data with all designers involved in the realization of the work (which usually require the technical characteristics of each element). Another valuable aspect is the conservation of all the documentation necessary for maintenance throughout the lifetime of an installation and for its safe demolition.
Summarizing the advantages of BIM:
· Engineering and Design - Products designed in BIM standard can be easily integrated in installation schematics with high level of accuracy.
· CONSTRUCTION – BIM standards require comprehensive technical data, providing valuable information during installation.
· MAINTENANCE AND DEMOLITION – BIM designing allows to put on record all technical information of each part and to generate a highly defined maintenance manual. This information is particularly useful for replacements, upgrading and disposal of installation parts.
