BIM for Manufacturers: Dispelling the Myths, Mayhem and Confusion.
16 Oct 2019
Product data is key to the success of BIM and imperative to achieving the golden thread of information in our sector. As the ownership of product data sits with the manufacturer, it is important that more manufacturers become involved with BIM themselves. For many, beginning their BIM journey can be a mine field of conflicting information and this can certainly be a preventative barrier for many. So where does a manufacturer begin and why should they bother to begin in the first place? Lee Jones from the NBS discusses the current barriers to wider BIM adoption within the manufacturing sector and shares is own experiences as a manufacturer implementing BIM on a large scale, prior to joining the NBS. The session will aim to share the many lessons learned and highlight the successes and benefits to a manufacturer. The session will then open up dialogue with the audience to allow others to ask questions or share their experiences.
