True lifecycle management
During construction, bluebee® X BIM for O&M acts as the maintenance data collection platform, to prepare and upload O&M data, linked to the BIM model, in compliance with relevant standards (such as PAS 1192, BS 1192, ISO 55000, EN 15331, ISO/TS 16952, IEC 81346, EN 13460, ISO 14224). Progress is monitored through KPIs. All data can be accessed through the embedded 3D viewer. During operations, bluebee® X makes the BIM model available to O&M team when it is truly needed.
Support for O&M
bluebee® X BIM for O&M is designed for real O&M work, focused on making the BIM model available to technicians when and where it is truly needed, for example to prepare complex maintenance work and to ensure safe operations. The solution functional scope covers:
> Handover of technical data from construction to O&M
> Easy navigation into complex technical data
> Using BIM graphics and data to help optimize work: work preparation, work permits, routing…
> Keeping the BIM "alive" (up-to-date) after construction (Lifecycle BIM)
BIM Data Preparation for O&M
Bluebee Technologies provides consulting services to ensure the BIM model is prepared in accordance to O&M needs. During construction, bluebee® cloud with BIM integration acts as the maintenance data collection platform, compliant with all relevant standards (PAS 1192, BS 1192, ISO 55000, EN 15331, ISO/TS 16952, IEC 81346, EN 13460 and ISO 14224). The system is used to prepare and upload O&M data, linked to the BIM model. Data preparation progress is monitored through KPIs. All data can be accessed, with a 3D viewer embedded in the bluebee® portal.
Our BIM for Asset Management solutions are already in use in the industry and BIM integration is a standard feature of our solutions. Customers include oil company CNOOC, Hong Kong San Wai Sewage Treatment Works, Hong Kong's Drainages Services Department, Organica Water, Goglio Tianjin Packaging, etc.
When implemented from the early stage, Bluebee Tech’s BIM for O&M solution ensures the handover of useful as-built models to the O&M team. Compared to the approach advocated by BIM vendors, large cost savings can be achieved in BIM licenses (no license for O&M team), BIM consulting services (LOD 500 models often not required) and IT integration (by avoiding complex data duplication).
Improved safety thanks to better work preparation with all stakeholders, visualization of the work environment, related connections, safety procedures, work permits, LOTO etc. in an integrated environment rather than in multiple systems. Efficiency gains when searching for drawings (3D model) and technical data, by accessing it directly from the O&M environment, for example opening the 3D model in one-click from a preventive maintenance work order.
Keeping the BIM model "alive" after construction (Lifecycle BIM). Most BIM models become obsolete quickly (sometimes almost immediately when not truly as-built), are not updated when parts are changed and do not contain historical O&M data. Day-to-day usage in the O&M environment ensures models remain up-to-date, increasing the value over time.
