See what your North American colleagues had to say about BCS NA 2017!
The State of BIM Content:
- Designers often discourage the use of manufacturer based content and prefer to invest considerable resources into the development of in-house content. Designers rarely communicate their needs to manufacturers.
- Manufacturers are always looking for new ways to differentiate and market their products to the design community, however creating content for customers has been difficult and frequently fails to achieve the objective that all users are happy with. Manufacturers struggle to know what their customers want and need in terms of both Product Data and 3D Geometry to create accurate schedules and construction documents.
- Content developers and software platforms struggle to create tools and content that adequately improve the productivity of accepted the design community. Providers are continually challenged to understand the needs of Designers and often lack the specific product related knowledge to deliver accurate content which is why we need manufacturers in the conversation.
Connect With Peers
We all know the many challenges with content. Now in its third year, BCS has drawn hundreds of industry influencers who have engaged in the important conversations needed to improve the quality and processes involved in the development of BIM content. At the 2017 BCS, you will connect with and learn from other users, manufacturers and providers that face the same challenges and learn from their mistakes and triumphs on how to create, deliver and maintain quality BIM content.
The mission is simple: Bring together passionate individuals that can lead discussions around BIM content and strategy for years to come. There isn't enough time in one day to solve all these challenges. That's why we invite you to attend. Become involved in the discussion. Be a leader.
