A few years ago, I asked myself which software the BIM Manager should use to organize a BIM project. The planner has designed with his CAD software as a matter of course. Moving from 2D to 3D might not always be easy, but there was and is a wide selection of software products. This approach forced the invention of software products for collision control. The first tools were designed to visualize three-dimensional models. The introduction into the typical tools for the BIM Coordinator was made.
And if the masses were already present, why should not one also create a consistency for tendering, awarding and invoicing. The term 4D was born and a little later the term 5D. In addition, the timely processing and provision of the construction services. As most of you now know, the networking and sharing of data in the digital chain works from software to software, but people do not apply these solutions either or only half-heartedly. It does not quite correspond to the desire to work in teams in the future. The software is fine, but the methodology is not right.
During time, we have learned about the extensive tasks assigned to the BIM Manager. Only in software, we almost exclusively provide the MS Office and the telephone to the BIM Manager. Every now and then, classics from the field of project management are also used.
Two years ago, I then raised questions in my blog and then went to the search. I did not find any suitable solutions. For me, the first question was the question of the tasks and the working methodology of the BIM Manager and then the right software. Now, after two years of intensive development, the BIM Planner System (BPS) was born, a suitable and flexible solution that supports the BIM Manager in his many tasks and responsible work, and relieves him of his time. The BIM Manager must direct and motivate his team. The BIM Manager is always and always at each point postponed. The BIM Manager should continuously evaluate and improve the performance and meet the agreed deadlines. The work is more agile than the normal process.
The BIM Manager requires the BIM Planner System. The BPS is a software-based methodology. It is the ideal digital tool for your workplace. At the end of September at the Intergeo in Berlin, we present the BIM Planner System for the first time.
