Building Information Modeling: A Strategic Implementation Guide

I n the December 16, 2002, issue of the LaiserinLetter TM, in what may have been the first widely published article on the topic, industry analyst Jerry Laiserin weighed in on the debate over a new term or acronym to describe the newly emerging design technology then poised to replace computer-aided design (CAD). 1 Laiserin opined that the lack of a clear, meaningful term for this new technology was “ a deadly serious issue that [if left unresolved] can stymie meaningful discussion. ”Citing a recent meeting of building industry strategists in which more than half of the scheduled meeting time had been devoted to crafting a term that all attendees could agree upon, Laiserin made a cogent argument for the term “ building information modeling, ”or BIM, as the best term to describe “ the next generation of design software. ”Many have since attributed authorship of the phrase to Laiserin, a misconception he definitively corrects in his introduction to the BIM Handbook by providing the most complete written account to date of the term’s evolution. There can be little doubt, though, that Laiserin ’ s 2002 article marks the point at which the term “ BIM ”first came into popular use.
