An automatic door is an automatic door. It was not until her replacement will be scheduled at a location in the building. Then the door is ordered, manufactured, supplied, calculated paid, installed, delivered and received. Then they wait. If it fails, it will be repaired and if it cannot be repaired, it will be removed and scrapped. All processes are accompanied digitally. All persons involved in working with software. Although it is always the same object „Automatic door,“ it is manually applied generally in IT as an object at least ten times and rewritten. It would be ideal if the object is created only once and the object information is gradually added would be. It will take a long time before we really create the door as an IT object only once.
Some speak of building design and build and the other building sustain and maintain. Some speak of BIM and the other of CAFM. Some programming software for the modeling of buildings and other design database models to manage building data. Some work closely with the graphics and the other with the alpha-numeric.
Currently, two groups of software vendors are facing. Some develop BIM and the other CAFM. Everyone keeps its software for the more important. Also, the competition is fierce within the groups. Each strives to be best arranged product and sell it. Who wants to work consistently with BIM and CAFM today, so you have to talk to two software companies. There is no complete solution or a complete integrated philosophy from a single hand, even though both use the same object automatic door.
Today, there are neither in the area BIM CAD still in CAFM an absolute leader in the software vendors. There are and have always been a first, a second and a third. A true leader must combine both areas in one software. The user would be happy. He had finally a software with which he could once create the automatic door and consistently use in all processes.
