Like the GSA, the State of Wisconsin, the State of Texas, now the country of Malaysia is on the board according to to this recent article in the Malay Mail.
Public Works Department (PWD) director-general Datuk Seri Dr Judin Abdul Karim said the department, in supporting the government’s desire to maximise the value of investment throughout the development plans, would utilise and enforced various ICT solutions in its strategies. This includes to spearhead the adoption and usage at all levels of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software and applications in building design.
The theme of this brief article seemed to be get on board or get left behind. “Geez Jim would you get off this BIM bandwagon,” I hear some of you saying, although I doubt you’re reading this if you are not right behind me playing the tuba, “you’re worse than the ice cream truck at little league games.” However I call them like a I see them, and I do understand the legacy tail of 2D and traditional CAD is long and will be with us for a very long time, not only that, I believe there will be a large market for hybrid technologies and also ones making CAD better but no one ever argued the development of the jet engine and its almost complete adoption in the aviation industry, except for maybe those companies just making propellers.
