Ivana Kermen, Especialista técnica en el área de arquitectura, ingeniería y construcción en Autodesk LATAM, sostiene que todos aquellos que deseen adentrarse en el futuro de la construcción mundial deben empaparse alrededor de la metodología de BIM, también conocida como el modelado de información de construcción (Building Information Modeling en inglés).

This methodology allows developers to explore the designs before the works are built; the intelligent models in 3D and the data that drives this process, make easier critical aspects of the projects, such as coordination, communication, collaboration, as well as a better visualization that speeds up approvals. There is also a benefit in environmental impact, thanks to the proactive sustainability analysis that also helps meet requirements for certifications, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

Join the movement
All over the world, design and construction companies are looking towards BIM, planning how to make the best possible adoption, worried about the negative impact on their ability to compete if they do not make this transition sooner rather than later. However, some of them are also worried about how difficult it will be to adopt this process.

The experience of Autodesk has allowed us to witness many companies that have successfully adopted BIM. Although, there is not only one correct way to do it, we have identified 10 steps that will help both speed up the process and reduce the disorders that may accompany the change and we want to present them below:

10 pasos para BIM

First Step: Know what BIM is. Designate one or two people in the company to learn more about how it will affect your work team. For example, in the 2D world, many companies leave the details to the final stages of the design process, in this case many of them must be resolved much earlier.

Step Two: Communicate the change to your people. Las posiciones de alto nivel en la compañía deben tomar un papel de liderazgo para hacer saber a los empleados del cambio hacia BIM. El mensaje debe ser "nos estamos moviendo a BIM, porque es fundamental para nuestro futuro" y no "estamos hablando de BIM." Asegúrese de comunicar los beneficios anticipados para su empresa y clientes. Será más fácil unificar al equipo en torno a una visión de futuro convincente.

Step Three: Consider the software and hardware needs. BIM is not software; it is a collaborative process that is based on intelligent 3D information models. But you will need software to create these models. Take the time to explore the available offer, and consider whether your current hardware has sufficient processing power.

Step Four: Develop a change management plan. To document from a high level how to anticipate the established BIM workflow changes, who needs a training, when it will be delivered, and how they will support the rest of the team when they have questions and doubts. Executive support is probably the most important element; Organizational change occurs faster and more successfully when people are helped to adopt new ways of working.

Step Five: Start a pilot program, and provide training to the team. Para la mayoría de las empresas, tiene sentido ejecutar un proyecto piloto utilizando BIM. En lugar de hacer docenas de pequeños proyectos cada año, se puede considerar terminar un piloto y tomar en cuenta las lecciones aprendidas en él, antes de ejecutar varios más experimentales.

Step Six: Document the preferred processes. As your pilot project (or projects) is progressing, it is good to have the BIM processes documented as a team. Consider your preferred results and what your team needs to support them. It is tempting to try to create standards during or before the execution of a pilot. But your ideas about standards will evolve as you use BIM.

Seventh Step: Cultivate BIM champions. Usted encontrará que algunas personas en su empresa están entusiasmados con el nuevo proceso, tal vez incluso aprendieron sobre él, como parte de su educación o mientras trabajaban en otra empresa. Trate de asignar campeones BIM en cada proyecto piloto, y proporcione la capacitación adicional y apoyo que necesitan para ayudar a sus compañeros en la adopción del proceso.

Eighth Step: Train and transmit to other teams. When people are about to start a BIM project, then train them. A common mistake is to provide company-wide training at one time, but the transition to BIM is project-by-project, over the course of a year or two. People in later projects forget a lot of what they learned in training, which may have happened a long time ago

Nineth step: Integration with other models. The greatest benefits of BIM will be evident when sharing models with other companies that also work in this process. The integration of the models in a single shared, accelerates the coordination process and opens the door to a new level of collaboration.

Décimo Paso: Expand and innovate with BIM. As you use BIM, you will find new visualization, coordination and analysis capabilities. Look for ways to convert these new capabilities into value service offerings and new customers. Communicate the value of BIM to current and potential customers, let them know that you are on track to meet the requirements and have a complete offer based on BIM.

Estos pasos son sin duda útiles para empezar, pero son solamente sugerencias y no deben ser vistos como algo rígido. Los pasos se deben seguir en el orden que tenga más sentido para los tipos de proyectos que se realicen. Son muchos pasos y puede decidir omitir o alterar algunos, todo depende de cómo quiera ejecutar su proyecto y de las dificultades o facilidades que encuentre dentro del mismo.
