2. BIM USES

Identifies the methods in which BIM will be implemented for generating, processing, communicating, executing, and managing information about the owner's facilities.

3. PROCESS

Describes the means to accomplish the BIM Uses by documenting the current methods, designing new processes leveraging BIM, and developing transition plans

4. INFORMATION

Documents the information needs of the organization, including the model element breakdown, level of development, and facility data.

5. INFRASTRUCTURE

Determines the technology infrastructure to support BIM including computer software, hardware, networks, and physical workspaces.

6. PERSONNEL

Establishes the roles, responsibilities, education, and training of the active participants in the BIM processes established.
