When it comes to Building Information Modeling (BIM), one of the biggest benefits is greater collaboration with your project consultants. But what does this mean for project teams that use different software programs? And, more importantly, how can you take advantage of this improved collaboration?

In this presentation, you'll learn how organizations can adopt standards based on the Open BIM initiative to achieve streamlined workflows, regardless of the software that is being used. Attendees will discover file-sharing methods such as Reference Model workflow, as well as how to integrate these methods with the BIM manager role. You'll also learn from a case study that proves the concept of Open BIM interoperability.


Learning Objectives:

  • Understand BIM workflows and IFC technology. 
  • Discover how an Open BIM workflow using IFC technology can improve interoperability. 
  • Observe a case study that demonstrates an Open BIM workflow. 
  • Explore how users of architectural; structural; and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) tools can collaborate through Open BIM.
