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.
