electroindustry article -- Focusing on the I in Building Information Modeling

Just as researchers have explored the elements in human DNA, work is underway to map the DNA of buildings.

In the December cover story of NEMA's electroindustry, leaders in the electrical industry examine the opportunity Building Information Modeling (BIM) represents as a competitive tool that would increase market presence and sales. BIM seeks to gather and integrate information on all aspects of a building, combining both visuals and product data for the lifecycle of the building.To propel the industry forward in this emerging technology, NEMA is working with IDEA to create a global BIM-compliant open standard for electroindustry data, in partnership with the buildingSMART alliance, a council of the congressionally- authorized National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS).
