Building Information Modeling (BIM) can mean different things to different people, and that makes it difficult to benchmark any BIM project against any other. Taking inspiration from lean production principles, Arup has developed a discipline agnostic tool that seeks to measure just how much a project has used BIM and how successful this has been. We call it the 'BIM Dipstick.' This session will detail why we chose to develop the tool; how it is actually used within the business; and how the data from it is used to focus our research, training, and software investment. We originally created the tool itself in our London office, but it is now in the process of being rolled out more widely as part of Arup's global BIM strategy. We would like to take this opportunity to share our experience of using it to date, both the good and the bad, and we hope to give you a version to take away for yourselves.
