Why does BIM require standards and procedures?
In this section you will be introduced to some of the standards forming the basis for BIM before completing Unit 3 of the BRE Academy course.
Just as in other production processes, BIM follows certain standards, methods and procedures as illustrated earlier on.
According to BRE, standards, methods and procedures are defined as follows:
Standard: A level of quality or attainment
Method: A particular form of procedure for accomplishing or approaching something
Procedure: An established or official way of doing something
BIM standards, procedures and methods are used as means for:
maintaining same level of quality of data used
raising awareness of the do’s and don’ts to other non technical practitioners
promoting efficient exchange of information among professionals
ensuring that the software used by different companies conforms to the standards set for national use
In your region, does the industry comply with the standards, procedures and methods promoted for BIM adoption?
