OpenBIM: Why is it important?
- OpenBIM supports a transparent, open workflow, allowing project members to participate regardless of the software tools they use.
- OpenBIM creates a common language for widely referenced processes, allowing the industry and the government to procure projects with transparent commercial engagement, comparable service evaluation and assured data quality.
- OpenBIM provides enduring project data for use throughout the asset life-cycle, avoiding multiple input of the same data and consequential errors.
- Small and large (platform) software vendors can participate and compete on system-independent, ‘best-of-breed’ solutions.
- OpenBIM energizes the online product supply side with more exact user demand searches, and delivers the product data directly into the BIM.
