bSI Use Case Management Service (UCMS)

The service offers a guided process for developing an information delivery manual (IDM) based on ISO 29481-1: 2016. It ensures a common language and a uniform understanding of BIM / VDC applications (use cases) within the entire construction and real estate industry. Use cases help both the customer and the contractor in defining the BIM goals of a project. In a subsequent step, the specific information exchange requirements are created.
