Integrated virtualization system to support Industry 4.0 building information modelling

Industry 4.0
Architecture firm archis Architekten + Ingenieure together with Arnold IT Systems, the Institute for Information Management in Engineering (IMI) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and cybersecurity vendor Wibu-Systems have joined forces to launch the construction industry into the digital age.

Building construction has been at the forefront of technological progress throughout the millennia and stands again on the cusp of momentous changes: the digital revolution, bringing not only substantial opportunities, but also considerable challenges. Construction projects large and small are becoming ever more complex, with a constant stream of new guidelines and building codes to consider, the risks of climate change to address, and the expectations of an increasingly urban and tech-savvy clientele to meet.

Building information modelling (BIM) is an innovative process of generating, analyzing, and managing building data throughout its life cycle. Used in planning, construction and management of buildings or other structures, BIM relies on non-proprietary, end-to-end business processes that work across companies and free from media disruption. However, 3D-model design theory, like BIM, has yet to make its contributions more universally applicable in the field, as legacy systems will continue to be used in conjunction with pioneering innovations.
The DigiFab4KMU initiative launched by the above cited consortium aims to leverage the potential of the digital revolution in the building industry by integrating all phases and agents involved in the construction process and their unique data and software assets in one integrated virtualization system (IVS).
