Developing and sharing knowledge
Openness and initiative form the basis for acquiring knowledge and making progress with ‘einfach BIM’. The team therefore strives for a cultural change in the construction industry, to disseminate groundbreaking ‘lessons learned’ and to make these lessons freely available for public as well as private sector projects.
In a knowledge repository, the ‘einfach BIM’ team has made ready for use its view of best practice for planning, building and operating with the help of BIM methods. The developed workflows are documented on the basis of DIN EN ISO 19481-1 and VDI/bS 2552-11.1 in the form of separate use cases. The visualization of the ideal-typical processes is undertaken with the help of swim lane diagrams (Business Process Model and Notation, BPMN), whereby the individual process steps are explained in the use case documentation. In order to promote a low-threshold application of results, templates for commercially available software applications complement the provided knowledge repository. Last but not least, evaluated surveys reflect the experiences of the ‘einfach BIM’ team from the HZDR’s real pilot projects.
The full published results are available through this website. An interactive filter enables quick access to the relevant knowledge modules—tailored to the individually relevant role, project phase and software landscape. With this contribution, the ‘einfach BIM’ partners aim to raise awareness, reduce preconceived notions about BIM and advance the digitization of the planning and construction processes.
