El maquillaje BIM [1] (BIMwash en inglés) es un término que describe una reivindicación desmesurada ? y a veces engañosa ? del uso o prestación de productos o servicios BIM. Una organización que lleva a cabo un maquillaje BIM generalmente se dedica a promover sus reivindicaciones de capacidad BIM injustificada a través de su equipo, página web, ofertas y/o material comercial. …

Después de haber presentado las diferencias básicas entre Capacidad BIM y Madurez BIM en el Episodio 11 y de haber tratado brevemente sobre los muchos y relevantes modelos de madurez en el Episodio 12 (aún no traducido), este post introduce una nueva herramienta especializada para medir el desempeño BIM: el Índice de Madurez BIM (BIMMI).   The original English version of this article …

It may be a simple task to list the benefits from implementing BIM technologies, processes and policies; however, the combination of activities needed to encourage BIM adoption and facilitate its diffusion is anything but simple. To achieve whole-market benefits attributed to BIM, a comprehensive, structured and coordinated effort by a large number of stakeholders is needed. This episode expands the discussion started …

La historia Empezaremos contando una breve historia. Había una vez dos organizaciones de arquitectura e ingeniería que decidieron adoptar BIM. Ambas organizaciones eran de tamaño medio, operaban en el mismo mercado y tenían los mismos departamentos. Las dos eran capaces de abordar grandes proyectos de diseño y construcción de presupuesto superior a $200m, en el sector de la Sanidad. Y hasta aquí …

Un proyecto de construcción pasa por múltiples fases, desde su inicio hasta su demolición. Estas fases se denominan habitualmente Fases del Ciclo de vida del Proyecto (PLPs, del inglés Project Lifecycle Phases) e incluyen actividades tanto de pre-construcción (planificación, estimación de costes), como de post-construcción (ocupación y mantenimiento de la instalación). Las fases del ciclo de vida del proyecto se pueden …

The second most frequently asked question I receive when presenting my work is whether the BIM performance models I use contradict with UK?s BIM maturity levels. The short answer is ?no?, but the longer answer is much more interesting and possibly a bit controversial. This Episode compares the Bew-Richards BIM Maturity Model (UK) with the BIM performance models developed as part …

A decade has passed since the first wave of major BIM guides and protocols were published by influential stakeholders in Denmark, Finland, Norway and the United States. The excellent efforts of Senate, Statsbygg, GSA and USCG have surely paved the way for current national strategies, roadmaps and mandates, which in turn will pave the way for future initiatives and BIM diffusion …

Hardly a week or two passes without hearing about a new national BIM initiative in one country or another. It is very clear that the pace of BIM adoption has significantly accelerated over the past two years and the next major implementation wave appears to be targeting mainland Europe. Sustained efforts can now be detected in Germany, France and Spain as …

This viewpoint is by guest author Rexter Retana. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an essential part of the construction procurement process. However, when BIM deliverables are indiscriminately injected into the scope of services of project players, or across the construction supply chain, a BIM scope creep will occur.   What is a BIM scope creep? The project management discipline recognizes three project ?boundary elements? ? scope, …

When discussing BIM diffusion within an organization (micro) or across a whole market (macro), two terms typically pop-up: top-down and bottom up. TOP-DOWN diffusion is a push by an authority to mandate the adoption of a specific solution it perceives as favourable. A good example of a macro top-down BIM dynamic is UK?s BIM Level 21 mandate and Singapore?s rolling BIM submission milestones2. …

A common problem for organizations delivering BIM-enabled services is how to assess the abilities of their staff, improve their performance and recruit new competent ones. This Episode continues the discussion on BIM Capability/Maturity assessment and focuses on the BIM competency of individuals engaged in managing, facilitating and delivering model-based projects.   This episode is based on BIM Excellence (BIMe), a unique approach to measuring …

BIM Wash[1] is a term describing the inflated ? and sometimes deceptive ? claim of using or delivering Building Information Modelling products or services. An organization which commits BIM Wash is typically engaged in promoting its unwarranted claims of BIM capability through its staff, website, project submissions and/or marketing material. Like Green Wash before it, BIM Wash is on the rise …
