Data manager for BIM
'organisational representative responsible for establishing governance and assuring data and information flow to and from the AIM (asset information model).'
An asset information model (AIM) is a model that compiles the data and information necessary to support asset management, that is, it provides all the data and information related to, or required for the operation of an asset.
The common data environment (CDE) is the single source of information for the asset. Information within the CDE can have a wide variety of status levels, however there will generally be four main areas of information, with a sign-off process allowing information to pass from one area to the next:
- Work in progress. This area is used to hold unapproved information.
- Shared (or client shared) area. This information has been checked, reviewed and approved for sharing with the project team, and perhaps the client.
- Published: This information has been 'signed off' by the client.
- Archive. This area is used to provide a record of activities.
PAS 1192-3 suggests that the roles of data manager and asset information manager may be carried out by the same person and may include information management as defined in PAS 1192-2 Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling.
