In the construction stage, construction work is managed using a production model, and the overall productivity is improved: procurement, as well as building site and component delivery logistics are improved, and the task planning and occupational safety information become more efficient.
In the commissioning stage, the maintenance data model is linked to the property maintenance systems, and the model and its data content is utilized over the entire life span of the building.
The procedure makes the collaboration between parties more efficient
The procedure links the different building project parties more firmly together than in a conventional project. Collaboration, decision making, exchange of information and general information improve. The benefits are most significant when the entire design work is implemented using modeling procedures and implementation software, and the building site and component suppliers use the data models to support their own procedures.
Data modeling reduces property management and project development uncertainty, improves design quality, reduces the need for modifications and ad hoc design during construction, makes task, schedule and cost management more efficient, and improves the management and use of life cycle data significantly.
Successful data modeling requires leadership and intuitive model management, a modeling approach based on the needs of the model data user, special competence in area-specific design modeling, and implementation of new services and technology in a way that provides added value.
