Enterprise integration of future building design systems

Abstract: The paper deals with the project and enterprise environment of integrated building design systems (IBDS), such as the one targeted in the European collaborative research project COMBINE. "he research has concentrated on the concept of a set of separate actors, grouped around a common data repository. Its deliverable consists of the first large-sized fully implemented conceptual building model. The actual data exchange is realized by STEP interfaces supported through a COMBINE interface kit. The resulting prototype was demonstrated in a workshop with design practitioners. The second phase of COMBINE has started recently and will build upon the above deliverables by combining them into an operational system, according to functional specifications derived with the help of practitioners in typical design office settings.

CAESAR - an architecture for enterprise modelling in the aec industry

Abstract: This paper reviews work in progress concerning information modelling in support of enterprise engineering, and discuses how important modelling challenges are being addressed to support more cost effective development of offshore installations for oil production in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. The paper describes a framework and a methodology for information modelling of real world project enterprises and presents initial application examples from the offshore oil and gas industry. CAESAR Offshore is a research program undertaken jointly by Norwegian oil companies, engineering ms, research institutions and the Norwegian Research Council, with the aim of utilising information-technology-based methods and tools which lead to more cost effective field development and operation. As a part of CAESAR Offshore we are developing an object oriented system architecture consisting of a framework and methodology for information modelling, based on our belief that complete and correct enterprise models of development projects must include both the project requirements, deliverables, activities and organisation. Thus information models of projects must represent both the objective, product, process and organisation dimensions. Based upon a model of engineering design, we explicate and relate the enterprise dimensions, and outline a way of describing the difference between planned action and actual behaviour. We implement our model architecture according to an information meta-model, based on a set of common reference entities, and a general offshore reference model. In our work we are using the offshore reference model, as the basis for modelling offshore platforms, design of hydraulic system for offshore production units, and project control systems for engineering design projects.

An IT infrastructure for long term research & development at the CRC for construction innovation

Abstract: The Australian Cooperative Research Centre for Construction Innovation (CRC CI) started operations in July 2001. One of its aims is to address the relatively low level of R&D activity within the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management industry in Australia. This paper briefly describes the general goals of a Cooperative Research Centre within the Australian national context. Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) are playing a significant role in the deliverables of the CRC CI. This has necessitated the definition of an ICT architecture at both the software application level and the project server level to provide a framework to maximise the effectiveness of the CRC CI's R & D expenditure. The current architecture is described and some key issues that will need to be resolved are identified.

A Life-Cycle Model for Contracted Information Exchange

Abstract: This paper will introduce a process-based building data model that tracks key building information through the facility's life cycle. The specification of batch and transactional exchanges, upon which this process model is based, uses the buildingSMART's Facility Management Handover Model View Definition (FM MVD) as the foundation for transforming paper-based deliverables into usable building information. The FM MVD is the first internationally recognized MVD for the exchange of non-geometric building information.

A Definition of Model Information Content for Strategic BIM Implementation

Abstract: In response to the increased early workflow implied by BIM processes it is important for design consultants to focus on creating and communicating information that is critical for its purpose (Jernigan 2008) - be it model content for 3d Design Coordination at scheme design stage, or Cost Estimation at Design Development stage, or generation of a suitable Record Model for Facilities Management. Today, with many of the technological matters of integrated information management dealt with (perhaps excluding the matter of interoperability), defining the content and status of BIM information deliveries remains both a practical and theoretical problem. A development of a participant-friendly method of articulating BIM content is required to clarify what information is needed when and conversely what information is indeed not needed to implement a BIM process at a particular stage in a construction project. Priority must be placed on the information that is vital for current tasks without getting distracted by desires to populate models with additional or other information or objects masking the absence of key information. Here there is a lack of existing knowledge to solve this practical problem.New BIM tools and new design processes and procedures have led to a certain confusion of what information is needed when for particular BIM uses. This report seeks to explore and enable a method of defining the content of model information deliverables through a review of 2 key primary specific BIM uses: 3d Design Coordination and Early Energy Appraisal through an analysis of practical application.The scope of this study is limited to a review of information flow within residential projects in a Swedish context and looks at two case projects with a view to identifying and establishing a common definition of the key BIM objects and properties necessary for particular tasks. The study follows a case construction project together with an experimental pilot design project with the purpose of extracting and recording what data is needed to carry out parallel and sequential BIM uses with optimised efficiency. By mapping both processes and the precise information needed to successfully carry out tasks, improved productivity can be realised and a greater quality of design output produced.The key deliverable from this study is the BIM-Info Delivery Protocol (IDP) which attempts to align consultant BIM-Info delivery expectations and represents a tangible solution to assist consultant disciplines manage BIM-Info.

On the use of Building Information Modeling in Infrastructure Bridges

Abstract: This paper describes the requirements for applying Integrated Design and Delivery Solutions (IDDS) in bridges’ projects in EGYPT to overcome the problems arising from applying the traditional engineering and delivery methods and processes. These requirements are: forming a new delivery model; building an integrated team; changes in contracts and roles of project parties; implementation of new technologies as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and; changes and requirements for people, organizations, and educational resources. The paper then describes how to successfully implement Building Information Modeling on bridges’ projects by forming Building Information Modeling execution plan which requires four steps which are: identifying high value BIM uses during project planning, design, construction and operational phases; designing the BIM execution process by creating process maps; defining the BIM deliverables in a form of information exchanges and; developing the infrastructure needed to support the implementation.

Integrating Multi-Party Contracting Risk Management (MPCRM) Model With Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Abstract: This paper suggests the development of a Multi-Party Contracting Risk Assignment/Management (MPCRM) Model integrated with BIM. The model provides a collaborative decision support framework and a common platform for processing shared database on risk management strategy during the entire project life cycle – contracting, implementation, operation, and salvage. The database is initiated during the Contracting phase through the inputs of the potential contracting parties on risk identification, assessment, and management strategy. The common platform in the MPCRM model creates a transparent environment essential to Integrated Project Delivery approach and provides the opportunity for the potential contracting parties to share perspectives, and reach a general consensus on the most effective and efficient way of risk assignment and management strategy. The shared database on the MPCRM model continuously transforms during the different phases of the project life cycle and delivers evolving output at the end of each phase. The final deliverables of the model during the project life cycle are equitable risk assignment and management strategy, as-built risk layout and management strategy, and risk layout and management strategy during operation and salvage. Finally, the output of each phase would be stored as the lessons-learned database in the MPCRM model to supply the decision support framework of the model for future comparable projects. This paper focuses in more detail on the Contracting phase of the risk management process. It outlines how the MPCRM model integrated with BIM could be beneficial in assisting the owner to develop the most effective contracting strategy. The integration of the Multi-Party Contracting Risk Management model with BIM, further enriches the current multi attribute characteristics of Building Information Modeling. Thus in the New BIM, the information representing each task or element in the model would also indicate the associated risk and the risk management strategy.

Integrated process mapping for bim implemenation in green building project delivery

Abstract: Professionals in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry are becoming more versed with building information modeling (BIM), and start to recognize its synergy with green building. As more owners are demanding better building performance to meet regulatory requirements, business goals or to establish a positive public image, implementing BIM in green building project delivery offers project teams the ideal leverage to meet owners expectations. Current Green BIM practices are immature, ad-hoc and unsystematic. The lack of an integrated process is the biggest barrier to exploring the benefits of Green BIM to their full extent. The fact that most project teams are transient in nature also makes it challenging to replicate success from one project to another. Other major obstacles reside in understanding the subtleties in differentiating the roles and responsibilities of team members, determining appropriate BIM execution strategies and standardizing information exchange (IE). Hence, the purpose of this research is to conduct a comprehensive review of existing Green BIM strategies and best practices, and to develop an Integrated Green BIM Process Map (IGBPM) to provide guidance on BIM implementation in green building project delivery. The deliverables of this research include a customized worksheet for project sustainability goals and BIM use identification, Level 1 of the IGBPM and several examples of the Level 2 process maps using LEED as a use case. The IGBPM is valuable to industry practitioners since it represents a holistic and systematic approach to efficiently utilize limited BIM resources to overcome the challenges and complexities to successfully delivering the project and achieving the targeted green certification. The structural transparency of the IGBPM also encourages risk/benefit sharing that can help enhance collaboration among team members and eventually facilitate a more integrated delivery of green building projects.
