Abstract

The broad range of BIM processes and tools implementation has resulted in the generation of a huge amount of complex data in assets management life-cycle that includes the asset main information, authorities associated information to assets, and a number of organizational information related to buildings design. In the BIM process management, the virtual model’s verification and validation are becoming too complex to be managed and controlled by normal procedures, which leads to the development of non-traditional strategies for reviewing the BIM database completeness and correctness by the automation of collecting and arranging these BIM Data to generate useful and simple information which helps in achieving the targeted outcomes. Monitoring BIM vital information for optimized design processes management is becoming more necessary and introduce the question of how big the information is related to the BIM process and projects development. The segregation of information according to process needs, real-time availability, and the accessibility of information is crucial for successful implementation and also helps in the analysis of information for BIM process time and wastes optimization. Decision-making based on reference analysed information is clearly affected and good results are noticed. This paper introduces types of BIM design process information and its segregation according to function, and how this data is controlled by an in-house developed Electronic Data Management System (EDMS) on Common Data Environment CDE. It also shows cases of how BIM information is reviewed, analysed, and corrected by automated solutions which help to enhance decision-making on different management levels.
