BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the process of creating a 3D model of a construction project that all departments work on together to increase productivity in the design and building stages. BIM enables a virtual information model (with data relating to architecture, engineering, construction, and so on) to be passed between different factions of a project in collaborative fashion.

BIM brings with it many advantages for the digital design of buildings such as:

3D visualization - 
While there can be several different goals to fulfill by the creation of a purpose built BIM model that may differ both in their focus, scope, complexity, level of details and the depth of information added to the 3D model, of course the most trivial use of a BIM model is for making nice visualizations of the being to be build. This is good for both helping your design decision by comparing different design alternatives.

Change Management - Since data is stored in a central place in a BIM model any modification to the building design will automatically replicate in each view such as floor plans, sections and elevation. This not only helps in creating the documentation faster but also provides stringent quality assurance by automatic coordination to the different views.

Building Simulation - BIM models not only contain architectural data but the full depth of the building information including data related to the different engineering disciplines such as the load-bearing structures, all the ducts and pipes of the different building systems and even sustainability information as well with which all the characteristics of a building can easily be simulated well in advance.

Data Management - BIM contains information that is not visually represented at all. Scheduling information, for example clarifies the necessary manpower, coordination and anything that might affect the out come of the project schedule. Cost is also part of BIM that allows us to see what the budget or estimated cost of a project might be at any given point in the time during the project.

Building Operation - It is needless to say that all the data put in a BIM model is not only useful during the design and construction phase of a building project but can be used throughout the entire building lifecycle helping to reduce the operation and management cost.

BIM modeling provides for continuous and immediate analysis of project design, scope, schedule, cost information and other matter. Those who favor BIM identify many of its benefits as:

* Higher quality work performance

* Better coordination among design and engineering disciplines

* Cost savings in the design and engineering work

* Increased speed of delivery
