What can we do for you?

We offer you a 360° system solution to carry out your project smoothly.
With one click, we think about everything real quick.

The ManPro.net BIM module is fully integrated with the ManPro.net FM module.

This means interrogating each technological component in BIM and visualizing:

- History of maintenance interventions after failure.

- Scheduled intervention plan.

- Documentation present in the documentary file.

- History of maintenance costs on the single asset.

All these features do not require any intervention as there is a coding that allows you to correlate the technological component of ManPro.net FM with the three-dimensional object present in the BIM module

The role of BIM in the construction industry is to support communication, cooperation and improvement of a project.  The life cycle is defined from the design phase through the construction phase to that of use and maintenance.  BIM is a "building information container" in which to insert graphic data and specific technical attributes.  Designed through CAD is developed by 2D and 3D drawings.

With bim all relevant building data can be collected, combined and linked digitally. The virtual construction can also be viewed as a three-dimensional geometric model.

BIM brings together all the information about every component of a building, in one place, and allows anyone to access that information for any purpose, eg. to more effectively integrate the different aspects of the design. This reduces the risk of errors or discrepancies and minimizes costs.

BIM as a development tool

The role of BIM in the construction industry (through its actors are these Architects, Engineers, Surveyors, Surveyors, Builders, Customers) is to support communication, cooperation, simulation and optimal improvement of a project along the complete cycle of life of the built work. The life cycle of the built work is defined from the design phase through the construction phase to that of use and maintenance.

Information repository for each building

BIM can contain any information regarding the building or its parts. The information most commonly collected in a BIM relate to geographic location, geometry, properties of materials / components / systems and technical elements, construction phases, maintenance operations, end-of-cycle disposal.

 

All the information in one place

BIM is therefore not a product, but a "building information container" in which to insert graphic data (such as drawings) and specific technical attributes (such as technical data sheets and characteristics) also relating to the expected life cycle. Design through CAD is developed through 2D and 3D drawing, while BIM design is not limited to visual information, but also offers the designer technical information about the object being modelled. 

With BIM you no longer have to produce a disproportionate amount of drawings, but manage digital models and information systems.
Thanks to the standard IFC format, project data is always available, without compatibility problems.
The margin of error due to poor coordination between actors is significantly reduced.
The drawings and technical documentation are always updated and dynamically integrated with the BIM models.

 

BIM compliant software

Thanks to the IFC model we are able to make programs such as Revit, Autodesk, Navisworks and Archicad communicate and work in a compatible way directly with our ManPro.net software.
IFC, Industry Foundation Classes, is a particular data format that aims to allow the exchange of an information model without loss or distortion of data or information.
It is an open, neutral file format, not controlled by individual software producers, created to facilitate interoperability between the various operators.

NATISOFT CASE STUDY

Hospital Santa Maria di Reggio Emilia

Premise: the BIM software used is Revit2021. Every single component present in the project has been modeled (and not downloaded) according to regulatory standards. The work carried out with BIM for pavilion H of the Santa Maria Hospital in Reggio Emilia consists in the creation of the three-dimensional model of the building in which to place the individual components of the systems previously surveyed in the field.

What are the practical applications of BIM?

With BIM you no longer have to produce a disproportionate number of drawings but manage digital models and information systems; thanks to the standard IFC format, the project data is always available, without compatibility problems; the margin of error due to poor coordination between actors is significantly reduced; the drawings and technical documentation are always updated and dynamically integrated with the BIM models.

What are the benefits of BIM and why is it important for industry professionals?

The advantages of BIM compared to traditional project management methods are many, both in terms of optimization of operational flows and, consequently, of productivity. Alongside the obvious savings in terms of time, the almost total elimination of errors, duplications and interferences is equally important, thanks to the real-time updating of all the project tables according to the variations made, and the consequent reduction of errors and subsequent corrections. However, one of the most important aspects of the innovative approach underlying BIM is above all the high integration between the design phase and the execution phase. Basically, BIM allows to overcome the inefficiencies and inaccuracies typical of the traditional design method of conventional professional practices, allowing to achieve full integration between the design and executive phases. BIM arises from the desire to move towards collaboration between designers, software interoperability, integration between processes and sustainability. In fact, BIM is a collaborative design method as it allows the integration of useful information in each phase of the design into a single model: the architectural, structural, plant, energy and management phases.

What is the technology of the BIM system?

Digital sharing of data and interoperability through open formats (openBIM). The collaboration between the different figures involved in the different phases of the life cycle of a structure. Thanks to the BIM methodology, the building is "built" before its physical realization through a virtual model through the collaboration of all the actors involved in the project. Per OpenBIM means an approach and a working methodology based on interoperability and collaboration between all the specialized disciplines involved in the design, construction and commissioning of buildings. Interoperability is the ability to exchange data between applications, allowing to standardize workflows and tending to facilitate automation. Interoperability between software is made possible by the IFC standard format.
