We celebrate the 30th anniversary of Project Based Learning (PBL) Laboratory at Stanford University with a hybrid event jointly hosted by PBL, buildingSMART USA (bSUSA), and Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE).
openBIM USA Seeing is Believing was a hybrid workshop featuring global and local examples of openBIM implementation. We introduced award-winning/innovative openBIM projects from around the world, shared challenges, and identified potential use cases with priorities for the USA. With over 250 registrations, 30 in-person and 100 virtual participants contributed to the formulation of a scope for the first set of Seeing is Believing project efforts based on top client requirements.
openBIM® extends the benefits of BIM (Building Information Modeling) by improving the accessibility, usability, management and sustainability of digital data in the built asset industry. At its core, openBIM® is a collaborative process that is vendor neutral. openBIM processes can be defined as sharable project information that supports seamless collaboration for all project participants. openBIM® facilitates interoperability to benefit projects and assets throughout their lifecycle.
Seeing is Believing is a program where use cases can be defined and tested in dramatically shortened timeframes by accelerating development of functionality and workflows while the openBIM® standardization is still underway (e.g., IFC 4.3, MVD). We expect progress from concept to realization within 300 days through this program.
The use cases may range from basic visualization, model checking, data normalization, and GIS integration, to operational digital twin with sensors. Use cases will be defined by the participants and solution seekers, assuring relevance to real-world challenges and realistic solutions.
