Building Information Modeling

Welcome to a new digital transformation era in planning

After decades of decreasing productivity, the building industry is on the verge of a revolution. Architects, planners, consultants, integrators and contractors will soon be able to share information more easily, drill down into design specifications at any stage of a project and collaborate with greater efficiency.

What is BIM?

BIM stands for Building Information Modeling, the process of generating and maintaining a digital representation of a building and the project it entails. BIM includes software, CAD and 3D, but it’s not only these things. Rather, BIM focuses on the process of fostering better communication and collaboration among all the parties that make a complex construction project come together.

BIM is still evolving, and challenges remain. Standards for the management and exchange of data need to be agreed on, for example, before all the data needed to design, plan, engineer, construct and maintain a building can flow seamlessly and in a unified format.

Nonetheless, the excitement surrounding BIM within the building industry is noticeable, because BIM can offer a solution to time overruns, budgetary overdrafts and the lack of transparency that often plague complex, large-scale projects. As the industry evolves towards BIM, those responsible for the success of a project are adapting to this new world and beginning to realize the benefits it can offer.

How does Bosch support BIM?

Bosch Security Systems recognizes the power that BIM has to change the industry and offers BIM files for its intelligent IP video cameras today. As files for additional products become available, Bosch’s BIM strategy will grow to address all phases and stakeholders in a construction project.

With the Bosch offering of smart, parameter-rich objects for BIM, architects can model more accurately and planners can simulate and troubleshoot across all dimensions. The goal of BIM is to empower all parties involved in a construction project to share, collaborate and interact seamlessly, driving time and cost savings. As BIM takes hold and begins re-shaping and adding transparency to the building industry, Bosch’s goal is to support the industry in realizing these advantages.

Architects who adopt BIM find that they gain the power to model reality more closely than ever before – and to share that reality as it unfolds. Together, Bosch and BIM allow architects to come in on time, on budget and with maximum transparency. Here’s how:

– StartFragment Information Richness: With BIM, product features, dimensions, power consumption, maintenance requirements and other specifications can be embedded directly in a model to enhance transparency, increase understanding and avoid conflicts at later stages of a project.

– Realistic Simulation: BIM products can also be simulated and visualized based on their specifications and the laws of physics for a true 3D experience

– Collaboration: Architects can share information and collaborate seamlessly, coordinate integration with other involved parties and manage input and review cycles more effectively

For consultants and planners, time overruns, budget overruns and a lack of transparency on large-scale projects are more often the rule than the exception. Bosch and BIM promise solutions for these problems, allowing planners to know more – and assume less. Here’s how:

– Scheduling: BIM fosters better understanding and more efficient scheduling of a project on many levels, from procurement monitoring to resource integration.

– Conflicts & Clashes: Because BIM allows planning in all dimensions, conflicts of time, space and cost can be identified and prevented before they become critical.

– Immediate Access: In a BIM environment, models are constantly up to date and immediately accessible. Planners can check for completeness at any stage and stay informed of changes on the fly.

System Integrators

In the initial stages of a project, system integrators face the same set of time and resource challenges as other stakeholders do. But when planning goes wrong, they are confronted directly with the results. BIM can deliver substantial benefits to these stakeholders as well:

– Planning: By including time (4D) and cost (5D) dimensions, BIM lets system integrators schedule and assign manpower and material resources with maximum efficiency.

– Parts Ordering: With BIM, finding the right parts and accessories becomes easier because ordering numbers are included within the BIM files.

– Understanding: Powerful, multidimensional visuals and interlinked documents and specifications provide contractors with more, and deeper, insight into a project before they reach the site.

Building Owners and Facility Managers

For building owners and facility managers, large complexes are finely tuned machines. Diagnosing and quickly resolving problems, and maintaining a functioning facility, is more than a full-time job. Bosch and BIM can help:

– Transparency: Significantly improved design transparency within the BIM process positively impacts all aspects of managing a facility, from day-to-day operations to maintenance and repair.

– Cost Efficiency: Whether for renovation, facility expansion, maintenance or repair, BIM makes sourcing materials, maintenance and repair services easier and more efficient.
