Central data management as common denominator
Ermatingen, Switzerland — September 23, 2020 —The leading provider of Product Information Management (PIM) solutions, Contentserv and the expert for BIM data management BIMsystems are now working together to create a "Single Source of Truth" of data. Providing a central data point of contact for all participants and intelligent interfaces will enhance efficiency of data management and maintenance, both internally and externally e.g. for BIM. The partnership-based cooperation will open up future-oriented possibilities for component manufacturers and planners in the field of digitalized construction planning.
The digital transformation is in full swing! Many companies have already initiated first steps. The construction industry is under increasing pressure to adapt to the new work requirements of the market and to jump on the bandwagon of digitization.
One exemplary development that is having a digital impact on construction planning is Building Information Modeling (BIM). All those involved in construction projects face the challenge of digitizing their construction processes. Due to the infinite amount of product data and their different data statuses, it is up to manufacturers and dealers to restructure processes and organize data centrally as digitalization and networking increases.
Creating sustainable synergies from PIM and BIM
Together, Contentserv and BIMsystems are disrupting the construction industry in a positive way! With Contentserv's PIM solution, manufacturers can efficiently maintain their product information in one central place and make the data available to construction parties via interfaces and BIMsystems' intelligent BIM solution.
BIM enables optimized planning, realization and management of construction projects using software solutions. Relevant product data gets provided for construction planning and building management and linked via a central data model. These processes define the requirements of structure, content and availability of product data. In order to enable high quality, transparency and homogenization of product data it demands a digitized and well thought-out product data management.
Component manufacturers enter their product information into a PIM system. Using the interface to the linya BIM solution from BIMsystems, they generate BIM-enabled data. Thanks to the PIM system, product-related information is stored centrally in a media-neutral database, so that by entering only once, output can be enriched and distributed multiple times and to various channels. This means that the data is stored centrally, always up-to-date and complete in one place, the "Single Source of Truth". BIMsystems solutions create a unique BIM connection while the BIM content is automatically updated. The result is a digitalized storage of construction information in high quality using the planning method BIM!
Holistic approach and innovation as components of the recipe for success
By combining both BIMsystems' and Contentserv's systems, manufacturers automatically get updated in their BIM solution how the BIM content they provide is being used. "Together, BIMsystems and Contentserv create an ideal product management and planning experience with maximum transparency to shape the digital future of the construction industry for manufacturers," said Gregor Müller, CEO BIMsystems. Collaboratively they are working on an all-round carefree package for digitalized product data management!
