Globalize BIM! (genuinely)


Bla..bla....blaaaa...
I go on-and-on about the interrelation between how various software dealers organise their product distribution and the overall state of BIM within AEC.
(see link to very good discussion on Archicad Linked in group too);

BIM is pretty much surviving (but not at all thriving) on tools provided by companies set up to work on the principles of succeeding in “cold-war era” types of environments.
They navigate by-the ‘us’ and ‘them’. The ‘good’ and the ‘bad’. The ‘you’re either with us or against us’...
Just to name a few, emotionally charged slogans that still so well characterise the field.
There is a token attempt by some on the fringes to voice the ‘right tools for the right tasks’ approach but this is mere playing lip service to taking quasi informed choices as opposed to really encouraging robust and widespread experimentation of variety of tools..

From the point of innovation and product development, the cold war era was not all bad news. Had only one party to outplay, focused resources and efforts into achieving palpable results within remarkably short timeframes.

So sticking to this type of environment should not by itself be paralyzing for the industry. Unfortunately, or fortunately (to the users) BIM-related tools can’t survive in their bubbles anymore and are forced to face up to the democratised information management that globalized construction projects demand.
