Watch this webinar to gain real-world insights from Stephen Crompton, CTO of GroupBC on the processes and systems that improve the control, capture and collaboration of project and built asset information.
Stuart Bell, Director at GroupBC introduced the topic of “Reality BIM & Controlled Collaboration for Project & Programme working” by showing how for the past 20 years GroupBC has supported the move from a sense of unmanaged digital chaos to a place of trusted project and asset information control.
He discussed the typical system landscape in construction and how this includes a variety of devices, mobility requirement, network shares, file formats and technology adoption. And highlighted how information management begins at home, quoting PCSG who say “the creation of information in a managed team environment works with file templates, and enables control over file naming, minor and major versions, and suitability codes. This leads to greater levels of compliance with information standards from the outset.
“Each supplier responsible for the creation of information should have their own team information system. This will enable each team to control the creation and coordination of their own documents and data, before sharing it with others in the wider project team.”
Stephen Crompton then went on to explain the difference between ‘Ideal BIM’, looking forward to where we wish to get to on the BIM journey, where digital information is maintained and connected with a Digital Twin throughout the asset’s lifecycle, and ‘Reality BIM’, which is where we are now, and the issues holding back progress.
In his demos of Wienerberger, Thames Water, Sainsbury’s and Mackley, Stephen shows how these clients are successfully maintaining their digital twin.
Stephen finished his presentation with some slides on the role of a common data environment and how if you start with the end in mind, it becomes easy to communicate, capture, compute and connect across the asset lifecycle.
