VDC BIM Lifecycle
Virtual Design and Construction BIM models show computer-based descriptions of a project. The Building Information Model aka BIM emphasizes the aspects of a project that can be designed and managed. BIMs are logically integrated in the sense that they all can access shared data. The models are multi-disciplinary in the sense that they represent the Architect, Engineering, Contractor and Owner of the project (AEC/O), as well as relevant sub disciplines. The BIMs can be used as performance models to predict project performance. They can show predicted and measured performance in relationship to stated project performance objectives.
