BIM – Building Information Modeling and the use of data for the life cycle of buildings and installations.
The intelligent 3-D model is at the forefront at BIM. During the planning and design phase it is created and provides necessary data for all processes while having the advantage of geometrically located information (3D).

For the subsequent management of buildings and installations, the 3D data as well as the geometry and factual information have to be brought into a new context and connected to other data levels. These new data levels e.g. changes of status, costs, resource consumption etc. are to be understood as dynamic data and are only developed over time as a geometry and master data framework via utilisation of the BIM model. Since this is a closed model, the consequences of changes are immediately visible and are not lost in redundant databases. Furthermore, the question about the "where" can be answered from the geometric model.

The connection between BIM and life cycle is made via timeline. This means that all information at any time in the past is still known, retrieved and included in evaluations. Future situations can be estimated via forecasts. Providing a better approximation of data structures to reality is the great advantage of the BIM model. Connections are immediately visible, can be evaluated and ultimately serve to make the right decisions.
