BIM is changing the way we build our brand-new and/or twin factories
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is essentially a digital model of the entire structure and content of a facility, used to digitally manage all data for a construction project. The idea behind BIM is that information can be shared freely between users and across departments users and across departments, leading to lower costs and better design quality.
Create, manage and re-use your digital building models
Throughout the entire lifecycle of a facility, BIM improves information flow between stakeholders involved at all stages, resulting in an increase in efficiency by reducing the laborious and error-prone manual re-entering of information that dominates conventional paper-based workflows.
Thanks to its many advantages, BIM is already practiced in many construction projects throughout the entire world.
Bim has a direct impact on your company's botton line:
Optimize resources and save money thanks to optimized planning processes
Reduce waste through savings on material costs
Improve safety through advanced visualization tools during construction
Gain more control over construction quality
Improve project coordination
Reduce the risk of errors and manage risk exposures
BIM for Factory Planning and Renovation
Whether you're building a factory from scratch, or by allowing us to make a 3D scan of a current facility that you want to renovate or re-build in another place, BIM can help improve the process from planning to execution. By having exact, as-built specifications, new layouts, and equipment locations can be reviewed by facilities managers, design engineers, and production staff.
Eliminate issues when renovating or retrofitting equipment into buildings. If old equipment and/or obstructing objects get in the way, our BIM workflow allows for scans of equipment and data extraction so you may virtually remove and place new
equipment without interacting with the physical environment. Have dimensional access to all critical tie-in locations and even the ability to reverse engineer the entire room mitigating problems caused by obstructing equipment.
By having a collaborative digital workspace, where critical decisions can be made real-time, you can prevent costly mistakes and get buy-in from critical stakeholders.
By using BIM in the factory planning process you will:
- Prevent costly errors because all parties involved in the project can view and approve designs electronically before any physical construction takes place.
- Save time by ensuring that everyone involved knows what needs to be done next at every stage of the project so that nothing gets unnecessarily delayed
- Reduce risk of errors when trying to fit new equipment into the factory by virtually simulating any production line.
Assembly Line Simulation
From giant inspection cells, or huge CNC CMMs, to the electrical wiring, BIM allows you to visualize how everything will fit together once construction starts.
