New book simplifies BIM methodology

December 20th, 2017, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Bentley Institute Press has release its newest title “Plain Language BIM”, now available as both a print publication and as an eBook for Kindle and iOS devices. The book condenses years of experience and lessons learned from Bentley Institute’s BIM Advancement Academy. It guides readers through the many complexities of BIM methodology by providing a plain language understanding of the concepts and building blocks required to deliver an effective strategy. It demonstrates why gathering data about the asset is vital to the BIM process, and why trustworthy and reliable information, delivered in an understandable and consumable manner, is essential for effective decision making – upgrading, augmenting, replacing, decommissioning, or leaving assets as they are. The book also explores three elements in creating good BIM practices: people, process, and technology. It explains how the combination of these elements plays a crucial role in the lifecycle of an asset and in delivering better outcomes. The book also examines the “Eight Pillars of BIM Wisdom” that ensure best practices and world-class BIM vision.
