Gaining Competitive Advantage By Using Digital Prototyping To Support Building Information Modeling

Date Added: Nov 2009

Current trends in the building product manufacturing segment - including HVAC, lighting, plumbing, doors/windows, and furniture systems - require building product manufacturers to deliver very specific content to the AEC community. The process that drives the need for this type of content is known as building information modeling (BIM) and is rapidly becoming the standard around the globe. This presents a significant challenge (but also new opportunities) for all building product manufacturers, and drives an immediate need for companies to develop strategies and workflows for delivery of BIM-ready content for use by customers and distribution channels.
