Abstract

The acronym BIM has been linked to several interpretations in the different phases of its maturity considering the tools, the processes, the method, etc. To comprehend the challenges in BIM implementation it is crucial to understand the context and the limitations that nowadays are shaping the boundaries of its development. On the one hand, this chapter describes some of the technological challenges in BIM application starting from the concept of object-oriented programming. It presents, among the others, a critical discussion about the time and cost integration in BIM (4D and 5D) and the use of open languages (such as IFC). On the other hand, the chapter explores the context of BIM application studying national and international standards and legislations, providing a map of the existing standards and their relations. Finally, a discussion about the evolution introduces by the ISO 19650 is proposed including a novel interpretation of the passage from LOD to LOIN.
