Master universitari (I livello) / BIM coordination

This BIM coordination master course offers an advanced training for BIM coordinators who will learn to deal with integrated projects of all kinds and sizes. The Master will introduce the relevant references as for Technical Standards and mandatory rules, as for example the European Union Public Procurement Directive, EUPPD for public procurement, published by the EU since 2016, introducing the use of BIM for public works. Starting from the International and National approaches about the implementation of BIM methods and procedures in construction process, the course provides an in-depth understanding of the regulations, data processing and key roles in the BIM environment, and will then get into many practical applications. Both the theoretical and practical knowledge will enable the students to manage integrated projects. The basic training has a strong focus on the opportunities for improvement during the whole construction processes, focusing on the basic competences to be gained as for the BIM coordinator as defined by international standards. Particular attention will be given to case studies and homeworks. The education path is pivoted towards the coordination on the use of various BIM tools used for managing integrated projects. The architectural design, MEP, energy and structural design as well as construction management are assisted by compatible, BIM softwares. Indeed, it will be shown how to use those methods and procedures and softwares not only to manage the building of new buildings and infrastructural works, but also to find the best technical solutions for the renovation of existing buildings. Some professional job opportunities which this specializing master will open include working at construction companies, construction technology manufacturers, engineering and architectural design companies, and public administrations. The ONLINE students will take care of the internship by themselves, because as working professionals they will simply convert their working hours into internship hours.

Introduction: digital revolution and its impact on the national and international arena

The Module does deal with the state of the art, both at national and international level, of the BIM-Based digital maturity. Processes and procedures will be investigated and debated, as well as the current practices. Tendering and awarding organizations need to take into account the standards and the guidelines in order to strengthen and enable their own tasks. On the other hand, consultancies and advisers are asked to follow the same path. The EU-wide regulations (namely, the European Directives) and the Italian Act about the public contracts would play a key role from a legal point of view, including data ownership, liabilities, insurances, and so forth.

ICT principles linked to object oriented programming, categories, semantics and visual programming, classification and coding systems, object files (Python)

The module provides an introduction to object-oriented modeling by presenting its main concepts and characteristics through UML as a reference visual language. The module will then present the main elements of Python, both as a traditional imperative language and as a modern and flexible object-oriented language.

Software interoperability principles: open federated learning

The module will focus on the problem of code and data interoperability. In particular, we will talk about software portability, tools for the integration of heterogeneous components, and open and interoperable data formats (for example, IFC, XML and Json).

Principles of voluntary standardisation: international, european and national standards, process standards (ex ISO 9000, 25000, 3100, etc.), BIM technical standards (UNI 11337, CEN TC 442, ISO TC 59 SC13)

The module will present the evolution of voluntary technical standardization (standard) in the BIM field and digitalization of the construction sector: introduction to standardization bodies and their activities; evolution of technical regulations in the field of BIM and digitalization of constructions starting from the origins of the UK, USA, and ITA; international ISO (TC59 SC13), European Community CEN (CEN 442) and national UNI (TC33 SC 05) standards. Following the UNI EN ISO 19650 reference standard, as the guiding thread of digital construction processes, we will investigate the related standards such as UNI 11337, its national annex, UNI EN ISO 19739, on interoperability, etc. For the BIM Coordination module, particular attention will be paid to the coordination of data (BIM review), the management of the Information Specifications (EIR) and the Information Management plan (BEP), the verification of collaboration flows in the data sharing environment. (CDE), the management of the levels of information needs (LoIN), etc.

Mandatory standardisation principles, laws and jurisprudence, introduction of collaborative, non-antagonistic contracts

BIM requires a rethinking of the traditional juridical and contractual categories in a modern and collaborative fashion. Starting from the exam of the sector-specific normative, the module intends to analyze the principal consequences of BIM in public and private works. Particular attention will be devoted to administrative and company organization, tender procedures, contractual discipline, responsibility, and intellectual property. Moreover, the content and framing of legal documents will be analyzed, including the Employer Information Requirement and the BIM execution plan. Lastly, the course will focus on the use of digital modeling in programs of urban regeneration and on the main contractual models collaboratively disciplining the network.

Company organization principles and order management. Definitions of information processing. Reading and editing of information documents - EIR. Reading and editing - BEP

This module delves deeply into the following topics of interest: the digital revolution and the business value of BIM, the role of investors, business organization, the role of ICT and AECO supply chain, the supply chain information need and the new roles, the software purchasing process, EIR and BEP.

Project management principles. Structuring of the processes, time and resource management. Traditional and Agile methods. Project Management of the order - task allocation

This module delves deeply into the following topics of interest: the basics of Project Management, business process redesign, change management and executive leadership, setup the project information system, IPD and facility management, BIM 4D, 5D and 6D, CDE, Big Data, IoT and business intelligence.

Economic evaluation principles and cost estimation. Quantity, price and cost definition. Order economic management, cost control, cost checking

Information modelling principles. Geometric, information and multimedia modelling. Project guidelines, Project requirements - PIR. Project information modelling management - PIM Template

A correct architectural model setting is crucial to set up the whole BIM process. The architectural digital modeling is intimately linked to the architectural and functional features of a project. This Master's unit deal with the BIM procedures, aimed at the digital modeling process with specific reference to the most used architectural authoring tools, such as those from the Autodesk, Nemetschek and others, as well as the tools for complex modeling such as Dynamo, Grasshopper and some applications with Python. The same unit is dealing with the tools for photorealistic simulation (rendering). The unit is designed for the BIM Coordinator role, who must be able to interact with the BIM Specialists and the BIM Manager.

Data review principles and analysis of results. Artificial intelligence. Code checking

Principles of asset management, territorial systems, digital surveys. Digital Twin, IoT and sensors applied to real estate assets. GIS and georeferencing models. Asset information modelling management - AIM. Sensors management

The georeferenced data represents both the starting and ending point of a BIM model. It is therefore necessary to refer to geographic data with all the rules due to the different scale and size, but taking into consideration the need for interchange between BIM entities and their GIS (Geographic Information Systems) context, and the possibility of data integration. The module will discuss geographic data related to the BIM model: their origin and characteristics, accessibility through open-access policies, and integration through GIS or BIM-oriented platforms. Attention will also be paid to the choice of the best data to use, from traditional numerical mapping to point-cloud assets. Procedures and tools aimed at designing and embedding infrastructure in the territory using Infraworks and other tools are explained.

Virtual and augmented reality principles

The inspection of the model during the stages of its digital construction can find support in the visualization offered by immersive modes peculiar to the field of virtual reality. This module will explore the possibilities offered by tools, hardware and software useful for immersive 3D visualization with next-generation instrumentation specifically supporting a BIM Coordinator in the inspection phases of federated models.

Ciascun allievo del Master avrà un suo account personale per accedere alla piattaforma Moodle (tra le più diffuse al mondo nel settore dell'istruzione online). Qui troverà un'interfaccia chiara in cui visionare tutti i contenuti didattici delle lezioni, l'elenco delle attività, il calendario, e i contatti dei docenti. Dal suo account potrà partecipare attivamente alle lezioni in modalità SINCRONA (intervenendo e facendo domande tramite chat, esattamente come se si trovasse in aula) o rivedere le lezioni videoregistrate quando più lo riterrà opportuno (alla sera, oppure durante i week-end), e scaricare il materiale didattico in pdf, in modalità ASINCRONA. Le ore di lezione si terranno in orario infrasettimanale, secondo calendario prestabilito. Nei mesi successivi al termine delle lezioni sarà comunque possibile visionare tutti i contenuti dei corsi in modalità asincrona e dedicarsi allo studio individuale, all'approfondimento dei contenuti dei corsi e alla stesura della tesi di master.

Each student will have access to her/his own personal account on the Moodle e-learning platform (which is among the most widely used platform globally for online lifelong learning). Here the student will find all the videos of the lessons in streaming, all the teaching material downloadable as pdf files, the calendar of the lessons, and the contacts of all the teachers. Through her/his own personal account each student will be able to follow the lessons in two ways: the SYNCRONOUS WAY while the lessons will be made in the classroom and the student will be able to participate as if she/he were present; and the ASYNCRONOUS WAY after the videos of the lessons, the teaching material, and the contacts of the teacher will be uploaded on the platform, and there will remain at disposal of all the students every hour of the day, every day of the week, and for the whole duration of the master. Therefore, even after the end of the lessons, all the students will have many more months to access their personal accounts on the platform and delve as deep as they deem necessary and useful into the contents of all the lessons. Until they write and defend their master thesis, and finally graduate.
