The Unmistakable Benefits of BIM Enhanced With PIM
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.
