Existential BIM

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

I got a kick out of Randy Deutsch's latest post on BIM.  In it he argues for the "existence of BIM" and lists 36 reasons.  The post is sadly accurate.  We need to continue to press forward.

Personally, I think one of the main reasons adoption of IPD, BIM and Lean business processes have slowed is that the economy itself has slowed.  Many projects that are going forward are public projects - which do not lend themselves to use of IPD, BIM or Lean processes - and sans projects demanding use of these tools few are investing the time and effort required to deploy them effectively.  I do believe as the economy comes back IPD, BIM and Lean business processes will be critical to those seeking to compete in an improving economy.

Programmabe Nano Scale Processor

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

Below is a link to an article describing several different aspects of a new programmable nano scale processor.

It will be interesting to see how these advances impact IPD, BIM and the systems we use to achieve lean construction and manufacturing processes.

Interesting Medical Break Through

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

I've been involved in several fire cases over the years - involving both personal injury claims and property damage claims - and I found the report regarding the "Skin Gun" detail below very interesting.
