WebEd: Lean into BIM: BIM Only Works if it is Profitable

July 31, 2018 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Member Price: 
$79
Non-Member Price: 
$99

All WebEd times are in EST

Description:

BIM isn't a game.  Senior Management has to make sure that the Virtual Design and Construction efforts are actually reducing risk and increasing profitability.  However, many individuals still see BIM as a novelty, an added service or even a cost burden.  This session is designed to help Senior Managers to understand how to implement BIM using Lean practices, where the real financial benefits are, and what has to change to see the increased profitability they want and our industry needs.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Determine how BIM, when done right, doesn't cost anything.
  • Explore the financial benefits of BIM and how to tap into them.
  • Describe why it is better to use BIM on smaller projects.
  • Determine what efforts to target when implementing BIM in a Lean way.
