With the BIMstatistics analysis tool, component manufacturers can precisely track the activity of your products as BIM content. The BIM content provided by them is downloaded by planners and architects and is used in the respective CAD system. The details on usage - the frequency of the BIM content being placed in the model - can be recorded.
Download figures alone are not enough for us. We provide insights into the use in CAD systems. By evaluating and analysing data, component manufacturers can adopt further specific measures - beyond the BMS.
BIMstatistics from BIMsystems
Gaining the competitive edge - with BIMstatistics
And what is it all for? With precise figures on the usage of your BIM content and regular user feedback, component manufacturers gain an in-depth insight into the planning behaviour of their target group.
Different to other tools, BIMstatistics doesn’t just use download figures: We would like to know how often planners use and benefit from BIM content. We go one evaluation level deeper and enable a look in the black box.
Such insights promote sales and marketing, services and communication, especially for the target group in question. The development of one’s own portfolio is therefore continually improved.
The view into the black box of the planning process
The number of downloads of a piece of BIM content is useful information. But BIMsystems wants its information to be more precise.
A product is downloaded once as BIM content of the manufacturer - but it can be used thousands of times in the model or be discarded again.
With BIMstatistics, we are able to make the most precise statements regarding our user behaviour. This distinguishes BIMsystems from other competitors on the market.
Relevant facts and figures on usage behaviour in CAD systems are of benefit to the manufacturer. They get the opportunity to continually improve products - in line with the needs of the user.
Which BIMstatistics functions will I benefit from as a manufacturer?
Evaluations on product use
Analysis of attributes which were searched for in a product group
Usage figures for products on a project level
Evaluations on deletion procedures of products
Information about the approximate locations of users
Feedback for qualified opinions beyond user figures
Contacts of users and direct access to the interest group
Automated reporting for a continually updated status
Key features of BIMstatistic
Individual and automatically generated reporting
Thanks to continuous reporting, nothing from the component management system escapes your notice. Automatic reports are generated at regular intervals in line with requirements and needs.
The parameters for this are defined in advance but can be adjusted at any time, if there is a case of unforeseen changes in use or similar. As such, you always stay up-to-date in an automated manner.
Validated contact data of users which have planned BIM content
When registering in BMS, users can agree to their data being passed on to manufacturers. This is done so on a voluntary basis.
Architects and planners are thus removing the barrier, making it easier for you to stay in direct contact. As your usage behaviour indicates which BIM content is of interest to you for the planned construction. You can implement this information directly and create individual offers. Without having to arrange a time-consuming meeting in advance.
Transparent evaluation of the usage of manufacturer’s own BIM content
The data available for the analysis can be evaluated for varied purposes. If the download figures are linked to the approximate location of the users, sales can get going straight away - and optimise the supply chain and shorten delivery times. It may be interesting for your marketing department to know by which criteria the objects are searched for in CAD, in order to adjust one’s own product data.
In order to continually improve processes on a project level, it is important to know the usage figures of the objects. Download figures from the systems alone are not enough. For this reason, the deletion processes of objects are also lifted. In this way, use of the individual objects is tracked.
Feedback forms provide you with precise data directly from the user. And information relevant to you on your BIM content and its scope, which you would not be able to derive from figures. Based on these conclusions, problems can be specifically eliminated and one’s own product always further improved.
In order to proceed in a more specific manner, you can assign objects specific to the forms in BMS. Specific questions can be asked on their attributes, which leads to a faster and more efficient evaluation.
