What to expect during the event
“Quality is the totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs”, as defined by BS 4778. When we talk about BIM, the quality must be pursued during the whole process. We won't talk just about Quality Assurance and Quality Control. The topic is about considering the Quality as an attitude more than a target, it is the awareness that if all the steps are correctly done then the BIM process would be smooth, the model would be healthier, collaboration between parts (designer and client) would be easier, and the BIM would be crucial in improving design quality by eliminating conflicts and reducing rework. The coordination, verification and quality control activities of the BIM model are essential aspects within the process to comply with BIM standards and purposes. Quality is a matter of Design, Construction and Operation. A step-by-step digital workflow to be set at the kickoff of the project and a detailed checklists are crucial to improve quality, increasing customer satisfaction, and to deliver an efficient and accurate digital twin for the management of the building during his lifecycle.
