BIM (Building Information Modeling) is an intelligent model-based process that provides insight for creating & managing building & infrastructure projects faster, more economically, & with less environmental impact. BIM includes a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for design, visualization, simulation, & collaborating that uses the rich information in the intelligent model to inform better decision-making and break down the barries to better business. BIM is a new way of approaching the design and documentation of various types of building projects.
BIM is a process involving the generation and management of digital representations of the physical and functional characteristics of a facility. The resulting building information models becom shared knowledge resources to support decision-making about a facility from erliest conceptual stage, through design and construction, through its operational life and eventual demolition.
BIM has a broad range of applications; right across the design, construction and operation processes of a building. Using BIM technology, one or more accurate virtual models of a building are constructed digitaly. They support design through its phases, allowing better analysis and control, than manual processes. BIM is an intelligent model-based process that relies on information generated by a BIM design tool for analysis, fabrication detailing, cost estimation, scheduling or other use.
