OPEN BIM Workflow #4 – Managing Change
What you saw thus far were the basics of the communication protocol in the OPEN BIM workflow. There is a very important dimension to it though — such communication cannot be only one directional/static. A real collaboration workflow is bi-directional and dynamic — meaning, there are continuous round-trip iterations. To fulfill this requirement, OPEN collaboration requires – as the last step – workflow level support for change management where “existing”, “new”, “modified” and “deleted” elements are intelligently handled and the updates are clean and lean both in terms of the information inside, the size of data package sent (only changed elements) and the way the receiving party handles these changes.
This video shows the implementation of such change management support in the OPEN BIM workflow.
