The Unmistakable Benefits of BIM Enhanced With PIM

Apr 01, 2011

If your firm has been using building information modeling (BIM) software for awhile, you’ve probably succeeded in the modeling part of BIM; that is, using BIM-based design to produce coordinated sets of drawings much more efficiently than you could using computer-aided design’s (CAD) sheet-based approach. However, many architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms are still struggling to use BIM as a building information management solution. There is a need to consider the use of project information management (PIM) software. Doing so allows that information, which is otherwise trapped in the model and readily-available only to BIM experts, to be used by a broader cross-section of project team members.
