The course, organized in lectures and exercises, aims to provide not only the operational tools
The course, organized in lectures and exercises, aims to provide not only the operational tools for a correct use of parametric software, but also cultural knowledge to critically evaluate the strong change brought by BIM technology to the construction industry. It will be essential to control the management of the construction process (both during the design phase for the structural and economic fields) using the integrated database that is able to manage graphic data (drawings) with alphanumeric information (GFA automatic calculation, window and door schedules, quantity take off, etc.). The course is focused on new trials of interoperability between different software, referring to international case studies, so giving an added and innovative value that in the future could be spent in the world of work.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Knowledge: the student should be able to acquire the theoretical knowledge necessary to critically develop the topics proposed during lectures and practical exercises using BIM methodology.
Capabilites: at the end of the course the student will be able to summarize the makings of the proposed method regarding to the
traditional one based on the production of drawings and documents that are not interoperable with each other. In this way the student will prove to have a professional approach to work.
Know how: finally, the student will develop a learning method that allows him to continue studying by himself.
Prerequisiti / Conoscenze pregresse
The knowledge acquired along the educational path of the first degree is needed, in terms of proper control between representation scale and graphical content (and information) associated with the different phases of design. It is preferred a good knowledge of the tools provided by CAD software for architectural drawing and 3D modelling. Then, it is needed a good mastery of the English language.
It is assumed to divide the course into 8 modules. Each lesson will be characterized by the explanation of specific issues resulting from research projects and case studies in progress or already closed, of national and international level.
1/8 - Survey on the state of the art of BIM and software interoperability. (10 hours)
2/8 - Definitions of BIM and interoperability and searching for a real case study. (6 hours)
3/8 - CAD vs. BIM according to the international literature and assignment of a case study. (6 hours)
4/8 Use of the parametric modeling in architecture (graphical user interface, templates, relationship between visual information, both numerical and graphic, customization of existing libraries and the creation of new ones etc..) (8 hours)
5/8 - Introduction to energy simulations. (10 hours)
6/8 - Sharing information and audit processes. (6 hours)
7/8 - Communication of the design data (report, schedules, drawings taken from the 3D models) (4hours)
8/8 - BIM for the building management and the general review of the works. (10 hours)
Organizzazione dell'insegnamento
The teaching will be divided into:
Theoretical lessons, about scientific knowledge aimed at providing students with critical and cultural tools (about 50%);
Specific seminars, (with the possible involvement of external experts from the profession world) aimed to focus attention on specific issues (about 15%);
Practical exercise devoted to the use of specific tools for the knowledge of BIM approach. These exercise, made by groups of maximum 3 students) are essential for checking the understanding of general technical contents (about 35%).

Criteri, regole e procedure per l'esame
The exam will be divided in two parts: the first one is more theoretical and related to the multidisciplinary themes illustrated during the lessons. The second part refers to the discussion of the final outcomes of the practical exercise. The list of topics (that constitutes the basis for the oral questions) will be available into the teaching portal. The exam lasts more or less 20 minutes.
Regarding to theory, students will be expected to answer to specific topics developed during the lectures and seminars (max 18/30);Oral test: students show the work done during exercises using the material required to pass the exam and will have to answer to some theoretical questions (max 12/30).
The final grade is the sum of the evaluation previously explained. The grade will take into account the correctness of the documents
produced, the ability to think critically, in addition to the clarity and properties of language demonstrated during the speech.
Altre informazioni

Specific equipment used during educational activities will be available in laboratories and/or equipped classrooms. However it is recommended (but not essential) to have a laptop to acquire more practice on BIM technologies.
