Summary and Info
This book sets out the framework for a process for building information management that enables greater productivity, risk management, improved margins and sustainability. It also explains how BS 1192, when used correctly, can form a good basis. The process is described step by step with key aspects highlighted and is applicable to every size of project and practice. The three specific areas addressed in the production information process are: roles and responsibilities; the Common Data Environment (CDE); and the Standard Method and Procedure (SMP). A move from a document-centric to an information-centric environment is enabled, thereby unlocking the power of technology. The process is based on established information that has been tried and tested in live projects and if adhered to without modification it is possible to achieve the following benefits:Between 25% and 30% of the construction cost that is due to incomplete, inaccurate and ambiguous production information can be saved.Figures of 18% reduction in drawing costs have been demonstrated and an overall cost benefit of at least 10% on the contract sum.The process offers the potential for greater saving in the delivery of the lifecycle information and the asset management data to be used and updated throughout the life of the facility or utility.Content: Front Matter • List of Figures • List of Tables • Preface • Table of Contents • 1.
