Connected BIM in the AEC Industry
Technology is opening up new opportunities for AEC firms. To take advantage of them, it is important not only to have a deep knowledge of the industry, but also to understand how to work with the latest software developments.
One of the biggest challenges in the construction industry comes from different teams working in silos. Any element such as a window, door, roof, etc. needs involvement from a range of different areas.
The processes that go into making an element include architectural drawing, building physics, tender planning, and many more. Lastly, a contractor needs to build the element.
Each of these different construction processes and stakeholders contributes to the information for the element. At the same time, each party needs to take away certain information about it.
These separate work processes can result in miscommunication, coordination issues, and various risks generated from a lack of collaboration.
Using the right interoperable and integrated flow of information is a smarter, more streamlined choice.
Interoperability in construction: The e-verse way
We will help you to identify these gaps between the different areas in your organization and then adopt a broader view of the interoperability.
In addition, the deployment of seamless collaborative project delivery systems, and new technologies and processes help to improving the flow of data in your company.
Identify the BIM interoperability gaps in your organization.
Adopt a broader view of information and data exchange.
Interoperability Solutions Key Benefits
- Allows software engineers to exchange information with each other in an integrated system.
- Enables to run key projects, with easily accessible and shareable data.
- Provides value to collaborative teams and contributors., eliminating problems caused by data re-entry.
- Adds value to projects to become more streamlined, consistent, and efficient.
- Standardizes operation data flow with a broader view of information and data exchange.
APIs for Interoperability Solutions
The current ecosystem of the construction industry is broad, and the list of formats that can be used is extensive.
So, we are used to working with many different data schemas from typical formats like glTF, IFC, FBX, OBJ, SVF, to custom created formats if the solution requires that.
The image below illustrates just an small portion of the AEC ecosystem where most of the tools have their own proprietary formats
