Overly detailed digital content cripples the planner’s system. It is not in the required data or version format. Your available content is outdated and does
Plannable and sustainable BIM content
This is how you as a manufacturer reach the planners
Well planned is half won! This is especially true for your next order. With good BIM content, you make it easy for project planners to consider your products from the start.
Our goal is to develop plannable and sustainable BIM content and to enable you as a manufacturer to control its production chain in a self-determined way. You become independent of external service providers, no longer have incomplete market assortments and outdated BIM data.
Create BIM content that is as good as your product
As a manufacturer, you want to be able to control the production cycle of your BIM content yourself. In addition, you want to place your BIM-enabled products in the local market assortments in a topical manner and in the desired language. Your products digitally as BIM content: manage centrally, update automatically, retain data sovereignty, publish on your website or portals – always up-to-date thanks to our BIMcCM.
In order for you as a manufacturer to be optimally prepared for collaboration in BIM with planners, performers and operators, it is important to consider various points.
Plannable and sustainable BIM content with BIMcCM
Your product information is usually available in the PIM system. This is where the daily changes take place. So it is all the more important to use this source for the targeted creation of their BIM content. Of course, your ERP, e.g. SAP or Excel can also be used as a data source.
You don’t have a PIM system in use yet? Excel or Access is the measure of things? No problem. We support you in structuring the data from a BIM point of view, so that later on not only catalogs can be created from it automatically. Because BIM content has its own requirements here.
Hand on heart, how often do you update your BIM content? Does what is achievable for planners even correspond to your current product portfolio? We ensure that you can provide updates at any time, even on a daily basis.
Through automation, you regularly provide new versions of a component. But how does it get into the user’s BIM project? What are the options for pointing out obsolete components in the project?
Your products are the same worldwide? Probably not! Therefore, your BIM content should also correspond to the local assortments. Nothing is more annoying for the planner than to use BIM products that are not available in the real project.
Through our long active involvement in committees, we know the relevant standards around the topic of BIM. We incorporate this knowledge into modeling guidelines, provision of ProductDataTemplates and interfaces.
When does the product cover come into the model? At least for public-sector builders, it is important at the outset to plan in a product-neutral manner. We make your product available to the planner in this scenario as well.
Certainly, you make a wonderful product of which you are justly proud. But does the planner want to use it in the high graphical representation level in the model? How does your content scale in larger BIM projects? Questions you should ask yourself.
International and regional standards for parameter naming exist. If you want to achieve user acceptance, such specifications should be followed through to project-specific AIA and BAP guidelines.
Your product is not orderable via articles and a catalog, but the result of a configuration? Then the interpretation know-how should not be part of the delivered content, right? We always protect your expertise.
Do you need further functionalities in addition to the content in the target system to support the planner further? We have the expertise to develop appropriate extensions in common BIM systems up to cloud solutions such as Autodesk Forge.
You would like to provide the content in one of the industry portals? Or is your focus on your own web presence? Or you would like to offer both? We support you with the appropriate software tools so that you can publish your content easily and well where you want.
Specifically for product manufacturers from the building services sector, VDI 3805 is a common format in the DACH market. We support you with suitable solutions to create this complex format automatically. This creates independence and response time.

Where standard solutions stop, we start to tie up the loose ends into a data network – creating a centralized management of BIM data. In addition, we support builders, planners, executors and operators by linking the isolated data by means of individual software development. You can use your BIM content management quickly, cost-efficiently, and in a resource-saving manner.
We support you in creating new business opportunities with the help of digital transformation. Feel free to contact us personally or request a no-obligation quote below.
In a workshop, we use targeted questions to determine your current situation and design an individual strategy. In the end, your question marks have dissolved and the path to sustainable and plannable BIM content has been paved.
Or do you need an external, critical opinion on the current strategy?
