Exploring process thinking to create streamlined digital workflows: Information vs documentation

23 March 2017 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm

This is the final lecture in a series of three on Building Information Modelling (BIM).

The aim of this lecture is to explore the opportunities presented through BIM to control the production of engineering information. Far from just being a set of documentation standards, BIM is a clear opportunity to reinvent the way we create, manage, and share information. BIM is an enabler, we need to take the step forward ourselves.

Dan Clipsom, Associate at Arup, hopes to demonstrate through a series of real-world examples, how ‘process thinking’ can be applied to engineering projects to create streamlined digital workflows that promote increased quality, increased productivity, and reduced waste.

He will explore the notion of information vs. documentation to consider how we communicate the outcomes of design, and consider the hypothesis that design is a virtual production line to which we can apply lessons learnt from other industries.

He will then close the loop by framing these ideas inside a UK ‘Level 2’ BIM context and show how it can provide a sound basis for trying out completely new approaches in a considered, confident, and valuable way.
