Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a technology-based collaborative approach that enables different stakeholders at different phases of the life-cycle of a facility to generate, manage and share information through a 3D digital model. Essentially BIM uses three-dimensional, object-oriented parametric modeling software to create coordinated and internally consistent computable information about a building project in design, construction and operation. For many years now, the WPI-BIM research group has been conducting studies to advance the use and understanding on how the potential benefits of the BIM approach can be attained.
