Asset Management and Storage Technology
BIM: A shared knowledge resource
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process involving the generation and management of a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. It is a central resource for tracking facility assets and can integrate into your CAFM facilities management software. The resulting building information model becomes a shared knowledge resource to support decision-making about a facility from its earliest conceptual stages, through design and construction, then through its operational life before its eventual demolition. BIM bridges the information loss associated with handing a project from the design team to the construction team and then to the building owner/operator, by allowing each group to add to and reference back to all information they acquire during their period of contribution to the BIM model.
