BIM (Building Information Module) is a concept used for Project - Planning, Designing, Analysis, Monitoring, Costing and Data Management in construction. The concept of BIM functions can be related to PMI project phases starting from Initiation to closure and for facility management also. By which the project life cycle is taken care by adaptation of single concept in construction. In projects the team of Architect, Consultant and Engineers forms the peer group to handle the project lifecycle from Inception to complete. During the project phases the simulation of 3D,4D,5D,6D,and 7D is taken care by BIM concept by which BIM act as a Pivot for the entire span of project. The BIM provides information and tools for decision making initially to analyses the conceptual three dimensional structure with layers of Timeline, Cost implication, sustainability factor and facility Management in the Planning stage and the implementation stage Project Management.
