This Question of the Week comes from the IFMA Building Information Modeling (BIM) Lifecycle Operations Group on LinkedIn.
What liability and risk do BIM simulation software vendors face if the structure fails? And if an MEP or structural engineer is required to wet stamp and sign drawings prior to issuing for permits and construction:
- How are they doing so using BIM software?
- Where is the AEC industry today with regard to proper security and alterations of their design and specification documents?
- If engineers use BIM to specify building components and a flaw in the software leads to a failure in the actual structure, what liability do the software vendors assume, if any?
