Multidisciplinary AEC Education Utilising BIM / PLIM Tools and Processes
2013 (English)In: IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology, 2013, 663-674 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The construction industry worldwide is moving towards more collaborative working practices, aided by building information modelling (BIM) tools and processes. BIM could be more accurately described as Project Lifecycle Information Management (PLIM). Many firms are claiming to be ‘doing BIM’, but are just scraping the surface in terms of the benefits that can be leveraged from true integrated, collaborative design and construction. New graduates, trained in collaboration and PLIM techniques will be the best people to drive positive change, but current educational models do not tend to provide these skills. This paper describes current worldwide educational trends in collaborative multidisciplinary education, and a proposed framework to assist academics in implementing changes to AEC curricula.
