A two-day training-workshop was attended by the personnel from the Presidential Project Management Office (PrPMO), Project Management Office (PMO) and faculty from the College of Engineering, Architecture and Fine Arts (CEAFA) on Building Information Management Systems (BIMS) held at the College of Informatics and Computing Sciences (CICS) Laboratory, BatStateU PB Main II, Alangilan, Batangas City, February 19-20.
Vice President for Administration and Finance (VPAF) Atty. Luzviminda Rosales, Vice President for Research, Development and Extension Services (VPRDES) Engr. Albertson Amante and the Human Resource Development and Management Office (HRDMO) spearhead the activity in coordination with the Regional Director of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) IV-A, Dr. Alexander R. Madrigal. The activity was the output of the meeting on piloting the BIMS at BatStateU to instruct faculty members and researchers about Fusion 360, a cloud-based CAD-CAM tool for collaborative product development. It combines a very fast and easy organic modelling with precise solid modelling, allowing students and professionals make their designs easily manufacturable.
The program not only supported the University personnel to familiarize the use of BIMS, but all the more, it assisted in infusing the concept of Disaster Risk Management to the design and maintenance of the university buildings among the personnel and faculty members of the university. The participants used the Mac computers of the CICS Lab to illustrate their models and designs during the workshop.
Faculty, researchers and university personnel capped the training-workshop equipped with more understanding and knowledge on BIMS, and is expected to execute their expertise during project planning and implementation.
