BIM Jet exec announces Harvard Executive Education program for BIM and IPD

Boston - July 27, 2009 - Today BIM Jet, INC. announced that it's CEO, Michael Schroeder has developed and is instructing a program on Building Information Modeling and Process Change for the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Office of Executive Education.

"Our industry is turning the corner from the old, error-prone, CAD based project delivery processes to embrace collaborative and transparent workflows that use contemporary technology and software," said Michael Schroeder, President and CEO of BIM Jet, INC. "Companies are faced with many challenges in todays market, and they are looking to capitalize on their investments in building information modeling software and training."

The course will explore the concepts of BIM as they relate to architecture, design, and construction. Examples will be presented that demonstrate how computable building information, e.g. costs and quantities, can be captured and shared to drive informed decision making. A variety of topics related to how BIM systems can be incorporated into practice, their influence on practice, and how they can be shared between stakeholders - i.e., owner, architect, engineer, fabricator, and constructor - will also be examined. 

About BIM Jet, INC.: BIM Jet, INC. is a young and vibrant privately held company formed in 2007 with the intent of bridging the gap between the BIM model and the need to retrieving its information in an easy, direct and efficient way. Today, BIM Jet, INC. continues to implement tools with the intent to facilitate the retrieval of BIM Information directly from the model, and has widened the development of its tools to include applications that ease the link between relevant parts of the construction process. They strive to make technology useful and productive by reducing complexity and focusing on decision support. Often, IPD (Integrated Project Delivery), BIM (Building Information Modeling) and VDC (Virtual Design and Construction) processes and software are complex, difficult to use and hard to implement. BIM Jet's  products connect technology with work flow processes, and allow decision makers access to project information so they can focus on the solution not the technology.
