Content

The unit enables students to integrate work-based case studies with the theory and practice of management of an integrated multidisciplinary information system/model of a complex projects. The unit examines information creation, ownership, usage, development and management and for planning, modelling and simulation to support effective decision making using BIM methodology. The students will examine such themes as: software and hardware tools, data compatibility, interoperability, procurement strategies, model/system ownership, contractual obligations, legal frameworks and security. The relationship between managing intellectual capital through knowledge management systems will also be examined. Students are challenged in development of execution plans to support implementation of integrated project information system/model through adoption of BIM for a case construction project.
