 What to expect during the event

The lack of culture, technology, processes and policies are likely to lead to failure. One key aspect of BIM is the creation of the right time for the right purpose; this is often not possible when using the “LOD” approach in contracts. In this presentation it will be presented how lack of clear information requirements can lead to failure and how to overcome it using the Level of Information Need framework included in EN 17412-1.
