Building information modeling (BIM) is the backbone of today’s building projects. But when was the last time you had complete trust in your BIM data? Without accurate model data and the confidence it generates, you’re limiting the BIM payoff — and your project success.
The solution is obvious: Simply ensure the accuracy of BIM data. Right? Unfortunately, manual BIM model checking is time-consuming and unreliable. Automated tools exist, but they can be complex, expensive, and out of reach of most AEC firms.
Fortunately, that reality is changing, and AEC professionals today have access to an automated model-checking solution that tackles traditional challenges head on to optimize BIM model data easily and affordably.
TRADITIONAL MODEL CHECKING COMES UP SHORT
As BIM models are populated with information during design and construction, they commonly collect incomplete or incorrect parameters. When a model holds thousands of items, finding these issues can be very difficult. The result is a model that lacks integrity and ultimately, usability.
Typical approaches to validating BIM data — if it happens at all — are inefficient and do not deliver optimum data accuracy and confidence in the model.
In the end, making decisions based on data that isn’t clean and correct is a waste of time and money.
