Identifying the BIM Uses

Table of Contents

The project team should identify the appropriate tasks that the team would like to perform using BIM. This analysis of BIM Uses should be focused initially on the outcomes desired by the overall process. Therefore, the team should start with the Operations phase, and identify the priority for each of the BIM uses on the project (High, Medium or Low priority) which the phase, and then move through the project phases in reverse order (Construction, Design and Planning). This perspective of 'starting with the end in mind' will identify the downstream desired uses of BIM which should be supported by earlier processes in the lifecycle of the project.
