    When planning a factory, many trades, project participants and disciplines are involved. In this presentation, I have made it my task to show you an end-to-end digital process, which we call the Integrated Factory Model (IFM). The coordination of all project-relevant data is the basis of an end-to-end digital process and is largely responsible for the success of a project. A simple 3D construction space model gives each project participant his workspace. There, for example, the layout planner carries out his process simulation and line planning with the Factory Design Utilities. Due to the adjacent construction spaces, collisions with other layouts or the building equipment can be detected and eliminated at a very early stage. All data is continuously merged, checked and adjusted in an overall coordination model in BIM360.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand Intergrated Factory Modeling use cases
    • The interaction between layout planning and AEC
    • The handling of large amounts of data in a layout
    • Cloud-based collaboration of all project participants
