The BIM 102 – Collaborative BIM course elaborates on the concepts of BIM 101 with a focus on the language of collaboration. BIM 101 introduced the concepts; BIM 102 frames those concepts within the realm of communication and collaboration. The goal of focusing on collaboration is to help prepare the learner to implement BIM in their organization or assess and improve their previous implementation.
By the end of this course, you will be able to describe how BIM enhances communication and adds more value to a project than with traditional processes, define the Levels of Development and describe how these terms support communication and collaboration, assess your own organization’s template needs and develop their standards according to the National BIM Standard, and discuss the concept of Collaborative BIM and successfully integrate the concepts into projects.
