Check out the latest news and our blog on the Get-Tech and LOD Planner nomination to CanBIM Innovation Spotlight Awards!

What is LOD Planner?

LOD Planner is a cloud-based BIM Management tool for architectural, engineering, construction companies and building owners, designed to simplify BIM planning, 

execution and monitoring; improve collaboration & communication; maximize efficiency, save time and minimize cost. 

 

What differentiates LOD Planner from traditional BIM management tools is, that it is built on foundations of Smart Lean BIM: the   right BIM, 

at the right time, by the right people – for the right reasons.

 

It is a common platform for all project stakeholders to cocreate, review, comment and approve BIM Execution Plans; define, agree on and 

assign scope; monitor progress and track deliverables – all in one online application. It is a unique visual tool converting difficult BIM planning

processes into modules, categories, sections and tasks that one can simply drag and drop, which makes it fun and easy to use!

 

The Simple BIM Management Solution

What are the Relevant Disciplines Using this Technology?

LOD Planner is a cloud-based BIM Management software that can be used by any architectural, engineering and construction company

as well as ownersand facility operators implementing BIM on their projects. It can be any type of design and construction project, including 

design-bid-build, design-build, IPD etc. Various BIM Execution Plan templates, BIM uses and LOD Matrices are included in the software, 

so it can be utilized by everyone and everywhere in the world.

What Challenges Does LOD Planner Solve?

Our industry is experiencing significant waste across many cross-company design and construction workflows.


Thanks to LOD Planner our industry is able to skip the hassle of BEP creation, defining and assigning scope of work through compiling a visual LOD Matrix, using electronic cards to do the right BIM planning, and finally monitoring of BIM project progress and deliverables through task timeline. 


We know how BIM Execution Plans are difficult to put together correctly and maintain so that they reflect accurate situation on a project.


We also know how poorly defined scope can negatively impact a BIM project, which often ends up in poor design, low quality construction, low quality as-built deliverables and finally disputes.


Tracking progress of all the BIM uses, BIM modeling and construction tasks is difficult and requires many different kinds of software and tools that are not collaborative and are not centralized.


As a result, we all experience the same issue of working in isolation, wasting time for official submittal and review processes, which consumes a lot of time and money.

 

Although BIM models can be now shared on-line and commented on by all stakeholders at the same time, the documentation around it still goes through traditional labor consuming channels.


The lack of right collaborative tools for the BIM Projects Management is the main reason for LOD Planner. BIM by default calls for collaboration and communication in any form, and for any project purpose and that’s the challenge LOD Planner helps overcome.

How Does LOD Planner Contribute to the AECOO Industry?

LOD Planner proposes an innovative approach to BIM Management and progress tracking.

 
Its goal is to simplify BIM, to make the management tools more user-friendly and fun to work with.


Simple drag-and-drop functionality can make any tedious process faster; reusable templates can make new documents in minutes – not hours. The ability to comment and agree on on-line stored BEP content and scope of work has never been easier. LOD Planner improves BIM Management practices by making them easy!


Thanks to LOD Planner owners have access to an intuitive, collaborative and visual method to identify the BIM they actually need; architect, engineer and consultant can easily agree on exactly what BIM scope they’re signing up for and work to; contractors can manage their BIM requirements in a collaborative and integrated BIM scoping workflow; all together they can easily plan and visually scope BIM projects on a single dedicated and simple platform.
