Digital transformation is sweeping the globe. All industries in every country are deploying an increasing array of digital tools and integrated processes to increase productivity and certainty, reduce risk and more effectively engage all stakeholders in their value networks.
The design and construction industry is in the process of digital transformation. New tools and technologies are helping to improve project delivery and make projects more profitable, sustainable, and safer.
Download this new study published by Dodge Data & Analytics, in partnership with Autodesk, which has concluded that stronger BIM use on architectural projects results in higher client satisfaction. The findings set out in the free Accelerating Digital Transformation Through BIM SmartMarket Report, offer an overview of how architects, engineers, and contractors use BIM and its associated workflows.
Where contractors, architects, and civil, MEP & structural engineers are in their process of digital transformation and how BIM is contributing value to that evolution.
How BIM is being deployed across the AEC industry and in what ways they are leveraging the data from models and processes to improve decision-making and effectively power integrated digital workflows among project team members.
A company’s BIM Intensity correlates directly to the progress of their digital transformation, the degree to which they report enjoying benefits from BIM and the ROI they believe their company is receiving on its investments in BIM.
An even more pronounced correlation appears in the findings related to active use of BIM data for analysis and digital workflows. Companies conducting a higher number of the 22 data-related activates studied often report even greater positive experiences from BIM than those doing most of their work in BIM.
Familiarity with BIM processes, and the ability to manage BIM-related data and collaboration tools, has prepared today’s architects, engineering and builders for what appears to be the coming explosion of “BuildTech” capabilities as the industry is finally digitized.
