BIM for Manufacturing

Any company that manufactures components for the construction industry is going to be affected by the growing adoption of BIM. The construction supply chain will need to be in a position to deliver BIM ready data as part of their project deliverables.

A whole variety of information should be provided with building components, including graphical and visual information, specification and performance, part, product and manufacturer’s data, as well as manuals and documentation. However not all this information should go into the object for use within the design model as it is unnecessary and can impact performance.

Why is BIM so important for Manufacturers?

Whilst participation in BIM projects is not mandatory for manufacturing for construction, given the acceleration of BIM adoption, and the fact that construction products represent about 40% of the UK construction costs; Building Product Manufacturers who do not meet the growing demands of the market could quite quickly experience a diminishing market share.

The Manufacturing industry has the opportunity to have a standardised range of components that can be managed into individual supply chains. These supply chains of products will allow the ongoing specification of products, and the ongoing monitoring of performance to enable continuous improvement and investment in research and development.
