Your Online BIM Execution Plan Templates
Give Your BIM Planning A Headstart!
BIM Execution Plans (BEPs) are essential.
However… if you don’t get buy in from your team members then your great BIM plan (even using the best BEP Templates) can gather cobwebs and be worthless.
In the three videos below we:
1. Introduce why BIM Execution Plans are so important
2. Share the common BEP challenges and ask “What Would Make It Easy?”
3. and DEMO: how to Quickly Create An Online BEP (using free BIM Execution Plan templates)
Part 1: BIM Execution Plan Challenges
1. Many BIM Uses
BIM is used for many important parts of the Design and Construction workflow…
2. Potential BIM Benefits
3. BIM Levels
However it is critical to define how much BIM is required for each “BIM Use” and also understand who in the team will benefit.
There are many excellent guidelines, standards, best practices and templates available.
Even a great BIM Execution Plan (BEP), using the best BIM Execution Plan templates, can end up in the bottom drawer, gather cobwebs and not help gain the advantages that we expect from implementing BIM.
6. Why Is This Difficult?
Unfortunately we are forced to use traditional (office focused) disconnected tools (like Word, Excel and PDFs) to support BIM workflows – this presents many challenges. So many that we found it difficult to fit them on one slide! 😉:
7. The Implications
The implications of getting BIM planning wrong can be scary. Without complete control BIM can become a wasteful workflow that will result in confusion, misunderstandings, blame, liability, risk and additional cost.
8. Wrong Way
We believe that there is a better way…
9. What’s that then?
…a more awesome way 😉
Part 2: Using BIM Execution Plan Templates
We Asked, What If?
What if we could make things easier, much easier?
1. What If We Made BEPs Simple?
2. What If BEPs Were Online?
What if we could use the power of the web for cloud-based BIM Execution Planning workflows?
3. What If We Had A Headstart?
What if we could use a dedicated BIM planning framework – rather than tools (like Word and Excel) that were created for traditional office-based tasks?
4. What If We Had Templates?
What if BIM Execution Plan templates were available right out of the box? What if we could leverage these BEP Templates to create the perfect and highly collaborative BIM Execution Plan?
5. What If Whole Team Agreed?
What if everyone on the project could be involved as the project planning evolved – maybe they could actually help create a better plan?
6. What If We Could Be Visual?
What if the plan created was so visual that everyone could SEE and actually understand what they were responsible for?
7. What If Teams Approved?
What if there was an approval workflow built into the tool that you can reduce email threads and actually have your BEP approved?
8. What If The BEP Was Live+Archived?
What if we could leverage the best of both worlds? Maybe having a live web based view of the BEP that can be continually updated but also be able to archive the contract versions along the way?
9. What If We Could Save Time?
What if these improved workflows could adopt Lean BIM approaches that would save you a bunch of time?
10. What If We Agreed On BIM?
What if the Owner, Architect, Engineers and Contractor all agreed on BIM before it was too late?
What If It Was Awesome! 😉
Awesome is good, right?
