In this presentation, attendees will learn how the structural steel industry is integrating technology to revolutionize the structural steel supply chain. Led by the AISC, the industry is forming strategic initiatives focused on select areas of the structural steel industry to apply technological solutions such as: Model Review and Approval, steelXML (a better way to buy steel), and Automating Steel Fabrication. These initiatives, known as BIMsteel, together form our overall interoperability strategy that will greatly impact the design, fabrication and delivery of structural steel in the US.
