Information – The one true asset to rule them all!
Manging information is not only key to increasing productivity on projects it’s also a very valuable asset, yet we have very little understanding and appreciation of what it is. To digitise we have to change this for us to get the best out of technology. This presentation builds on the concepts discussed in my Information Chaos Theory presentation from two years ago.
We will start by asking the question “what is information?” Followed by the problems we face on projects where information is poorly managed and how we need to think to mitigate them. In the second part we will look at the ISO 19650 standards which provide the framework to help us manage information and then how ISO 16739 Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) fits into this framework, to allow information to be exchanged in the same way each time.
The solution is here, the jigsaw pieces are starting to fit together but we really need to change our mindsets to see it.
