BIM validation is the process of validating the accuracy and completeness of the data in a BIM model. Specifically, with BIM validation, the model is verified against a set of predetermined criteria to ensure that it meets all the necessary requirements.
This process can be carried out manually or through the use of software.
Manual data validation involves reviewing the data within the model and comparing it with reference documents such as drawings, reports and plans.
Automatic data validation can be performed using software that verifies the model against a set of rules or criteria. In both cases, the goal is to ensure that the model data is correct and complete.
Data validation is an important part of any BIM project, as it helps to ensure that the model can be used to accurately represent the construction project.
It contains information of various types (geometric data, properties, relationships with other objects).
