Will anyone ever Solve the Problem of BIM Content? The Building Content Summit suggests we can... if we do it Together

I tweeted about the Building Content Summit last year, and I'm happy to report that BCS 2016 looks like it will be even bigger and better. Here's a few words from their website on the current 'state of BIM content':
  • Designers often discourage the use of manufacturer based content and prefer to invest considerable resources into the development of generic models. Designers rarely communicate their needs to manufacturers
  • Manufacturers, looking for ways to differentiate their products, create content for customers but frequently fail to achieve a medium that all users can be happy with. Manufacturers struggle to know the requirements of their customers
  • Creators of content or software platforms struggle to create tools or content that are accepted by designers as a whole. Providers fail to understand the needs of Designers and/or lack product related knowledge
Do you agree or disagree with the above points? Would you like to be a part of BCS, helping shape the discussion for the whole industry?

Then check out the links below: there is a link to a survey where you can suggest topics of discussion, and also a nomination form where you can nominate a 'thought leader' of BIM content to become one of the BCS50.

Topic Survey:

The BCS50 recognizes 50 leaders from the worlds of Building Product Manufacturers, Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Owner-operated Practitioners, and Software & Service Providers who are actively engaged in innovation and thought leadership related to BIM content. BCS50 is hosted by the Building Content Summit (BCS), an event dedicated to the ever-changing ecosystem of BIM-related content.

Do you know someone who belongs on this list? Nominate them now to recognize their hard work and dedication to BIM-related content.
