Digital model - BIM

In the same spirit as the digital factory and PLM in the industrial sector, the "digital mock-up (DM) for buildings" or "BIM" is increasingly being used to design and exploit building data throughout the project life cycle.
The aim of this process is to model and centralise the data of the various parties involved (the architect, design offices, structure, electricity, fluids, heating, energy, home automation, etc.) in a 3-dimensional digital representation of the various stages of a building's construction.
This model avoids re-entry and facilitates the integration and coherence of the different lots. The information is thus gathered and capitalised in a single model that will also be used in the operation and management of the building (maintenance, energy balance, etc.).

This process, for each building, acts as a technical database by integrating, in addition to the geometry, the equipment, walls, furniture, etc. This process is called BIM (Building Information Modeling) or in French MIB (Modélisation des données du bâtiment).
Within this framework, the "FTZ-BIM" module of the SchemBAT software integrates the electrical and fluid network functions into the 3D digital model of the building.
The model of the digital model of the building comes from different 3D BIM architecture software in IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) or RVT format from REVIT™.
FTZ-BIM identifies individual components in power, low-voltage and home automation or integrates them from standardised libraries.
It draws the cable routing, the panels, the boxes and defines the cable routing.
It also extracts the various Bills of materials.
