Industrial Building Design is a design process where the successful implementation of each project is based on collaborative decision making of multiple domain specialists - architects, engineers, production system planners and building owners. Traditionally, such multi-collaborator workflows are subject to conflicting stakeholder goals and frequent changes in production processes inevitably resulting in lengthy planning periods. This particular design process needs novel approaches to decision-making support which would combine the ability to communicate design intent with real-time feedback on the impact of design decisions.
BimFlexi project aims to accelerate BIM design processes for industrial buildings by using parametric modelling, multi-parameter optimization and collaborative VR exploration and modification of models at early stages of building planning.
