Language of Instruction:English
Module Code:MGMT E8005
 
Credits: 5
Valid From:Semester 1 - 2017/18 ( September 2017 )
Module Delivered in 2 programme(s)
Module Description:BIM (Building Information Modelling) uses the process of designing and constructing and operating a building collaboratively using one coherent system of computer models rather as separate sets of drawings. It currently can bring together all the different disciplines within a project to work on one "active" model that greatly enhances efficiency and accuracy and presentation. The purpose of this module is to allow the student to fully understand all the management aspects of modelling a building from using scheduling and resource software to applying the concepts of BIM management to a project,
Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to
  1. To appreciate how to Manage BIM projects and formulate the ability to outline the BIM deliverables as exchanges of information.
  2. Appraise internationally established frameworks for BIM protocols and standards. Establish key performance indicators for requiring BIM on projects, and the criteria for BIM implementation and the level of development of the models.
  3. Develop BIM implementation Strategies including EIR (employer information requirement) and BEP (BIM execution plan)
  4. Evaluate the implications of BIM in a legal context in relation to contracts / risk / collaborative agreements
  5. Identity BIM role for Site co-ordination and advanced clash detection
