Traditionally, price has been the sole factor considered in selection of construction contractors by project owners, and in awarding subcontracts further down the supply chain. Best-value procurement enables other factors (such as qualifications, schedule, quality, and performance-based criteria) to evaluate and select subcontractors, with the ultimate goal of providing the highest value for the end customer. BIM 360 cloud services have enabled owners and contractors working on thousands of projects to collaborate with their supply chain and access critical project data throughout the building-construction lifecycle. But it also keeps a record of this data, which can be analyzed to surface insights into supply chain performance. This class will focus on how contractors can now use objective indicators of past performance as a means for selection of their supply chain. This session features BIM 360 Field, BIM 360 Docs, and BIM 360 Plan. AIA Approved
- Gain actionable insights into supply chain performance by analyzing data collected by BIM 360 tools
- Learn how to incorporate data from BIM 360 into a series of performance dashboards and selection tools
- Learn from peers and see real examples of how contractors and owners already use these insights to make informed decisions
- Learn how best-value procurement moves away from low-bid selection by considering multiple performance indicators
Mark Taylor is responsible for implementing new technologies and construction tools in BAM Construct UK to meet their digital construction strategy. He is also responsible for leading development and implementation of information management standards and procedures to meet the U.K. Government Level 2 BIM mandate. He supports project teams in preconstruction, construction, and through to handover. He works closely with clients and facilities management teams to deliver digital assets and ensure operational requirements are met. He also delivers education and training modules for construction teams, supply chain, and design teams on digital transformation (BIM) to ensure change is effectively managed and new ways of working are fully adopted.
Michael Moran is a consultant at Autodesk, Inc., focusing on construction. He helps customers optimize their construction processes through adoption of cloud-based BIM 360 tools, with a focus on design review, production planning, scheduling, field management, layout, and project handover to owner/operator. His master's thesis in construction management at the Delft University of Technology was a comparative study designed to assess productivity gains from using Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools on Skanska U.S. Building projects. Together with Skanska and Autodesk, Moran presented a webinar on this case study. Moran has taught 5 previous Autodesk University classes and has spoken multiple times about the benefits of cloud-based BIM at the European 5D Conference. Other experiences in the building industry include founding and running a concrete specialty forming firm, working as a consultant on major infrastructure projects, and obtaining a bachelor's degree in architecture.
