What is openBIM?

A transparent approach that enables all stakeholders to be informed of project methodology, data and results without the need or obligation to use prescribed software.” Project stakeholders are free in their choice of software. In practice this means using open BIM standards like IFC, BCF and others.

In other words:
#OpenBIM = #interoperability in a heterogeneous environment where different software products can take part in #construction.
Seen from the Design & Build life cycle.

Register for one of the events during the openBIMweek to be held. Location Amsterdam area (Nearby Amsterdam Central train-station). More info can be found here: http://openbimweek.org/events/
