What are BIM ACTORS?
“BIM actors” are the people, systems and machines involved in a building’s lifecycle and component production. That includes architects, structural engineers, BIM managers and facility mangers. It also includes robots, scanners, CNC machines, sensors and controllers, AR/VR devices and 3D printers.
To do their job, each actor needs specific information at specific times. BIM is all about “feeding” BIM actors with the right information at the right time. That means clearly identifying a project’s BMI actors and what they need to know when to make decisions and do their work effectively.
