EXPLORING THE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP: BIM FOR LIFE

31Jul17

by AEC-ST News

The many ways in which technology has changed the approach AEC professionals can take to a given task or project is a theme that we’ve explored, but the people at BIMStorm are tackling the issue in far more complete manner. Their BIMStorm AEC Game Changers series is taking an in-depth look at how various advancements in technology are impacting the Design and Building industry and dramatically altering the way everyone lives and works.

Their upcoming webinar is titled: “BIM for Life: Total Cost of Ownership”. It will be focused on the disruptive changes AEC professionals are dealing with to help them reconsider how they can and should tackle certain problems and issues. To get a sense of what’s going to be shared and showcased during the webinar, we caught up with Kimon Onuma, creator of BIMStorm and the ONUMA System. We talked about some of the technologies that have created disruption, how professionals can ensure they’re not being negatively disrupted by new technology and plenty more.

Jeremiah Karpowicz: Have the technology changes that are disputing the AEC industry made more of an impact on a technical level or on a conceptual one? That is to say, are these disruptions more about using a new/updated tool, or are they about needing to adopt a completely new approach?

Kimon Onuma: A better hammer is still just a hunk of steel until it is placed in the hands of a person ready to do work with it. Implementing technology is always going to be about adopting new approaches because ultimately the tools do not work alone, but need to be used by people. The users need to understand how to properly apply the new tools to improve their everyday workflows. BIMStorm brings the people and tools together to challenge and create faster disruptions for AEC.
