Module Title:BIM Management Process
Language of Instruction:English
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:7
Module Delivered In 1 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: Lectures Practical’s Private study Lecture format utilised to provide theoretical instruction in BIM software tools.
Module Aim: It is the aim of this module to equip practitioners with the requisite knowledge and tools to ensure that information is organized and controlled during the construction procurement process and throughout the lifecycle of the building, in a manner that is as efficient and supportive as possible, based on the exploitation and use of BIM models and tools.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to:
LO1 Evaluation of Model - Interact with, evaluate & interrogate BIM models to derive relevant 4D/5D/6D outputs using appropriate software tools. Insight into how BIM tools can be used throughout the building life cycle, beyond the design and documentation. Use BIM models to support construction techniques, construction planning, cost and quantity feedback, fabrication, and facilities management
LO2 Process/Collaboration - Learn and evaluate the interaction processes involved in designing, constructing and managing a building through use of BIM models and data sets, including the importance of collaborative working between disciplines nationally and internationally and influence/apply techniques and competencies to working collaboratively through BIM.
LO3 Management - Critically analyse and select BIM management techniques to achieve the desired deliverables/handover and performance outcomes, through project, facilities and operations management, taking into account their social and economic global impacts.
