Process re-engineering through building information modeling (BIM)

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce how Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be used by the contractors and the benefits in adopting BIM for their projects. It will also discuss the importance of preparing not only their people to be BIM ready but also their organization and their processes. The course aims at imparting knowledge regarding the process re-engineering concepts of cost-estimating using BIM, in particular, linking BIM Model (objects, attributes, specification & measurement method) with the cost information from database to the estimator. Discussion will be carried out regarding the integrated BIM workflow in modular prefabrication construction from design intent model to means and methods model (including temporary structures and machinery used) and to fabrication model. The integration between BIM with the production planning system such as the Last Planner System will also be covered. These topics also introduce the technical processes and workflow, lessons learned and implementation strategies for contractors in using BIM for the construction site. It also covers the application of BIM for FM (facility management) on how to link external data and knowledge capture to the as-built BIM model that can support facilities management. Facts and figures on how BIM has been used by contractors will also be presented.
