Challenges faced by BIM managers

BIM management is a challenging role. Whether you have been tasked with leading the BIM initiative or are just starting out on this journey, there are many issues to address. This article highlights key challenges faced by BIM managers and touches on how you can overcome them and what some of the top options are if you find yourself struggling.

  • Managing large BIM datasets

BIM data is growing at an exponential rate. It’s easy to understand why: it’s a cost-effective way to create accurate designs quickly and easily, which can save time and money in the long run. But managing this growing volume of data is becoming increasingly difficult for managers. Managing BIM data is a major challenge for BIM managers because there are so many different types of data including CAD files and 3D models that need to be stored securely within your organisation’s systems.

The problem is that there are many ways to work with BIM files – from using desktop CAD software to managing large amounts of BIM data using cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS). This means that every company will have their own approach when it comes to managing its BIM data. However, it’s important that all companies follow best practices so they don’t end up with unusable or incomplete data or even worse: no data at all!

  • Helping designers with modelling

Some of the most common BIM interview questions revolve around designing because it is after all the most crucial part of the entire process. BIM Managers need to be able to communicate effectively with their project team. They also have to be able to look after the models created by the designers, so that they are not lost or overwritten by new versions. This is the most important aspect of a BIM Manager’s role. It is very important that they can help designers with the modelling process and help them to create models that are easy to understand, easy to use and easy to make changes at a later stage. The BIM Manager should have enough knowledge about the software used by the company and should be able to guide in case of any issues.

  • Managing multiple projects

 They must be able to manage multiple projects at once while also ensuring that they do not get stuck in any one project as this would slow down their entire team. This means that they need to be able to manage multiple projects from different departments within their organization, which requires them to have good communication skills as well as be able to work well with other people within their organization who may not share a common language or culture with them (e.g. in different countries).

  • Training BIM on a large scale

BIM is a complex project management process that requires a significant amount of training and deployment. This is where the role of a BIM Manager is the most crucial. They are responsible for the training, deployment and ongoing support of BIM across an organization. In order to deploy BIM on a large scale, it is necessary to have a robust training process. On several occasions, this would require bringing together experts from different disciplines such as architecture, engineering, construction and project management to ensure if there are no issues. The training can be carried out both internally as well as externally.
