    shelf designs they will help ensure compatibility with other systems saving the architect time This will provide early confirmation of design intent and achieve product visibility making it more likely to be referenced during procurement and less likely to be value engineered out at a later stage Putting this into hard facts 58 per cent of architects who used BIM said that when designing they would give preference to products supported with BIM objects This proportion is projected to increase There are also emotional benefits associated with offering BIM Regularly telling specifiers and contractors about your BIM object availability as part of your communications will present your organisation as a quality company and set it up to speed with current standards and practices When working with BIM it s most important for manufacturers to offer objects in the right format At the early stages of design only basic drawings are required to ensure the BIM environment isn t cluttered with memory hungry data Fully rendered drawings will be required later so offer both formats Also train your sales team so that they understand the basics of BIM and how to use your objects BIM is relatively new to both the designer and manufacturer all stakeholders are still learning how to use it to its best effect Even if your 2014 budget cannot run to developing BIM objects you should be monitoring your competitors offering closely and preparing a strategy to implement BIM in the future And if you are concerned about how to justify it to the Finance Director invest in the Competitive Advantage report Adoption of BIM 2013 which will also give you advice on how to use BIM to maximum effect Further Reading Reaping the Benefits of BIM An interview with John Tebbit Construction Research Adoption of BIM

    this can be translated accurately into Autodesk Revit Graphisoft ArchiCAD Bentley Building Suite etc The manufacturer does not want to be faced with producing their objects several times over to accommodate software discrepancies The other barrier to adoption is manufacturers seeing BIM as drawings rather than structured data BIM is not about the drawing but about the object s information it is about the data and how you manage the data As companies start on a BIM implementation process they will look at their information strategy and will potentially save money with greater efficiencies being adopted by the manufacturer as the product data is managed centrally from one system Finally the standard concerns that come with change still play a part such as unfamiliarity and worry about cost This is where manufacturers can learn from others reviewing the lessons learnt by the early adopters and hearing case studies Q In your opinion what are the main benefits of BIM for the building product manufacturer The early adopters may see some advantage initially but as BIM becomes the standard and everyone is using it there will be no clear advantage or competitive edge In the medium term I see the manufacturer benefiting from the restructuring of internal information systems allowing for greater efficiencies Long term I see the advantage being the designers not just the architect but all those on the design team being more connected with the manufacturer BIM will allow for a direct line between designer and manufacturer It could bring the Architect back to the role of master mason reconnecting the designer with the build Manufacturing has been digital for decades and now designers are preparing for a digital age Manufacturers have existed on a digital island in a sea of analogue data Designers will now be on their digital island and although we may occasionally still need to swim through a sea of shark infested analogue water BIM provides an opportunity to build a bridge between the islands BIM will fundamentally change the construction industry Construction is the last big industry to go digital Music print retail much of manufacturing is already digital Not checking data you receive because you know it is right and uncorrupted imagine what this could do to the construction industry This is where manufacturers need to be confident that when a file is shared it is received correctly with no corruption to data We could also potentially see changes in payment If the as built model is updated by the sub contractor and the client knows this then why pay him via a main contractor why not just pay the sub contractor directly I truly believe we have no comprehension how the industry will change over the next decade My father in law was a printer when that trade changed in less than a decade to being digital By the end of the change he said that there were whole trades that not only weren t needed anymore people had already forgotten
