Webinar: LOD BIM Software Management & The New 2017 LOD Specification

november30How do you manage LOD in a practical way on your project? This session will show you how. I will highlight some new emerging free tools that help teams working in BIM with the 2017 Level of Development (LOD) Specification. This presentation will include results from the BIMForum’s Software Summit held in Dallas, November 7, 2017.

The 2017 LOD Specification can be downloaded free of charge from after Novemer 8th. The LOD Spec is a language that describes where a model element is on the path from vague concept to fully specified. This language enables concise definition, at the individual element level, of complex BIMs, providing for clear specification of models for milestones, information exchanges, deliverables and the like.

Updates this year include:
- Added graphic examples.
- Fully vetted precast concrete building elements, highway and railroad bridge elements (precast and steel), and pre-engineered metal buildings (these sections were pre-released last year as an appendix that was added after the public comment cycle).
- Editorial review of the entire document for consistency.
- Addition of Omniclass and Masterformat numbers.

The Spec is updated annually after going through a process of new content collection and vetting, existing content review and update, and public review and feedback.

Learning Objectives:

  1. What is LOD?
  2. How do I manage LOD with new software applications?
  3. Why are LOD critical to project success?
  4. How do I define LOD in BIM Execution Plans?
