LMS Professions: BIM Manager


With the development of information technology, there have been significant changes in the design and construction industry. Digital modeling of buildings (Building Information Modeling, BIM) is the process of creating an information model of a building. The model allows you to visualize the project and predict the operational characteristics at all stages of the life cycle of the building. A lot of specialists from various fields work on a BIM project, and a BIM manager coordinates their work and manages the process.

The three-dimensional model combines all the information about the object with all the mutual connections and dependencies. Changing any parameter of the model automatically entails the correction of all other data, taking into account the newly received information. Project data is placed in a single database. Which all persons associated with the project have access to. To create a BIM project, information design systems are used - complex software complexes and various add–ons.

Core competencies of a BIM manager

BIM managers are specialists with higher engineering education and knowledge in the field of digital modeling, software, cloud infrastructure, as well as the stages of construction of an object. The specialist must coordinate the work of specialists, train staff and prepare documentation for the project. Due to the fact that a specialist solves a wide range of issues and interacts with a large number of people, psychological stability, stress resistance, sociability, the ability to correctly and fully convey information to all participants in the process are important for him.

The main functions of a BIM manager

The responsibilities of a BIM engineer include a wide range of tasks for creating a three-dimensional model. Some of them:

  • Selection of technologies and approaches for the implementation of the project, taking into account the requirements of the customer.
  • Setting up the information environment, developing rules, standards and monitoring their implementation.
  • Defining the goals of building a digital model.
  • Development of a strategy for the use of modeling technologies.
  • Determination of the applied programs and algorithms of interaction.
  • Selection of optimal scripts, plugins, processes, families.
  • Development of regulatory documentation on the basis of which the model is created.
  • Archiving and creation of project backups.
  • Organization and management of modeling technology at the company level.
  • Coordination of the work of employees working with the project.
  • Development of training and professional development programs for specialists.

A BIM manager builds modeling processes to solve specific tasks, coordinating work with a large number of participants. He systematizes information, interacts with customers and partners, representing the interests of the company.
