Information Management Process

To implement a successful BIM Information Management Process (IMP) you need to define how you will control your asset information incorporating the requirements, processes and governance. You will also need a Common Data Environment to share the building information with all those that need access to it.

Covering the building’s lifecycle

Your Information Management Process needs to cover the whole lifecycle of your building, from the design development, through construction to the handover. The process needs to cover your day to day operations and planned maintenance work.

Defining your information requirements

You will define these processes in your Organisational Information Requirements (OIRs), your Asset Information Requirements (AIRs) and your Employer’s Information Requirements (EIRs) which are specified in PAS 1192-3.

Helping you manage and optimise your property

The IMP compiles all information required to manage an asset and maximise its value and purpose. It will cover the graphic 3D model, non-graphical and documentation components.

Integrating with your FM system

To be effective the Information Management Process should link to existing FM systems to extract all relevant information

Your Asset Information Model

A key part of the Information Management Process is your AIM (Asset Information Model) which graphically represents the physical aspects of your managed dataset.

Cadnet can help you create an Information Management Process as part of your Strategic Data Management Strategy that will help you achieve Level 2 BIM compliance. Through practical experience we have developed a seven step approach to do this.
