Building Information Modeling (BIM)
The rapid emergence of Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way AEC project teams work together to communicate, solve problems and build better projects faster and at less cost.
For champions of building information modeling, the value proposition is clear. The vast majority of users report seeing positive returns on their investment in BIM. For the time and expense put into making BIM part of their practice, users gain a range of benefits that could include improved productivity, enhanced quality, increased opportunities for new business and overall better project outcomes. The more benefits a user reaps, the higher the perceived value.
The benefits gained from BIM are greater than many users believe. Those who formally measure ROI on BIM report higher returns than those who estimate returns based on perception.
With experience, users can see more value. Experts prove that, as users gain proficiency, they will find ways to leverage the technology to their benefit. Given that BIM is still an emerging process, this trend should gain momentum as more users master it and software providers develop additional tools.
