REJECTED! Check your model and try again
Mike Turpin is a Digital Transformation Consultant for Innovating Futures, working with designers, contractors and owner-operators across the construction industry to deliver faster and smarter BIM projects.
Mike has spoken at many events both in the UK and overseas on the topic of BIM and related technologies and has specialised in BIM adoption for the last 10 years from software to process and everything in between.
Here Mike gives us an insight in to what you can expect from his seminar: REJECTED! Check your model and try again
Whatever you call it and however you undertake it hopefully everyone agrees that it needs to be done. As humans we’re not perfect and sometimes we do make mistakes or make decisions that might not be the best. This is why we need to integrate these checking processes into our workflow to ensure that when we share information of any kind, be it drawings, documents, databases or models it is correct and reliable.
As much as we all know these reviews and QA procedures are crucial to any business operation we also know they are a pain in the backside we could do without. When your rushing towards a deadline trying to get a stack of information out the door so you can go home on a Friday evening the last thing you want to do is spend crucial time getting this information reviewed. With all of this new technology why are we accepting this old outdated process as the norm?
So we all check drawings, we all check documents and we all check our data before we send it to others, despite the slow painful usually paper based process, but…. what about BIM, what about our beautiful masterpiece 3D models? Does anyone out there check their model? How do you review a 3D model containing so many elements with hundreds of views and an unthinkable amount of data fields? Is it possible to check a model and if so is it viable to validate this massive sea of data? We can’t just print off a model and give it to the boss for a wet signature so what do we do.
My session at BIM Show Live will look at all of the above in an interactive presentation discussion where everyone will learn from everyone else and together we will distil the answers to these questions. As a close to the session I will be giving my views on where I think we should be going with this topic including some examples of things you can do to improve your own model auditing.
Mike is delivering his seminar: REJECTED! Check your model and try again in the Data Stream on Day 2 of BIM Show Live, Thursday 1 March at 10:30am.
