Advantages of BIM for management of building projects
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an information management method or a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. A BIM is a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle; defined as existing from earliest conception to demolition. 
Building information models are set of information in fails which may be collected, supplemented and edited in all the building period of existence. The concept of BIM is known since the 1974 when Charles Eastman published “An Outline of the Building Description System.”  but BIM appeared as a tool in building industry only in year 2002.  At this moment in many countries there has been accepted and in other is being developed BIM standards. Also BIM development of the construction sector is being made to a special study program where students can learn the BIM management. Nowadays BIM is helping many building companies, individual users and government agencies with processes in management and helps them to complete the cost of project effectively, time estimated and also to identify risks, plan quantity of employees, dealing with communication problems and provides a visual effect to the customer. BIM is constantly being improved, but we can already see the results and benefits as well as the opportunities it (BIM) will offer in the future.
