Digitization – manufacturer of building materials and equipment
In a dynamic business environment, cloud solutions are gaining importance. Deploying processes in the cloud enables real-time access to up-to-date information, efficient change orders, tracking revisions, and communication. A Common Data Environment (CDE) platform is not only useful for day-to-day operational work but also in crisis situations when there is no time for tedious searching of project documentation.
Benefits of working in the cloud
Increased accuracy in operations
Single master version of the project
Smooth communication with all participants
High standardization of actions
Ability to join major investments
Enhanced service quality
Higher quality of collaboration
Real-time connection of project teams
Shared source of information
Streamlined project management process
Autodesk Docs provides document management in the cloud and a collaborative data environment on the Autodesk Construction Cloud platform.
Manufacturers of building components produce products, equipment, and materials that are used in and around buildings (such as windows, doors, elevators, escalators, HVAC systems, lighting installations).
The use of BIM methodology is now widespread in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Manufacturers who want to collaborate with clients in these industries need to use BIM in order to create data that is compatible with the applications currently used for designing buildings in which their products will be installed, and to use such data.
What do customers expect from manufacturers of building materials, equipment, and components?
According to a study conducted by Harvard Business Review among architects, engineers, and contractors, the following trends were revealed:
73% of respondents
state that the success of their projects largely depends on the relationship with building product manufacturers based on collaboration
77% of respondents
observe a growing demand for custom solutions and closer collaboration.
23% of respondents
claim that one of the most important factors they consider when choosing a supplier is proficiency in BIM.

BIM Object Modeling for Manufacturers: Aliaxis Group Case Study
Revit software is used for architectural, engineering, and construction project design, documentation, visualization, and creation.
We offer collaboration in the form of preparing Revit libraries that are compatible with the Manufacturer’s product catalog. We create families for the architectural, structural, and mechanical industries, as well as add-ins for Autodesk Revit.
These can include items such as interior fixtures, furniture, doors, windows, mechanical equipment, duct systems, pipes, and fittings. These families can include the information required by you, such as catalog number, costs, dimensions, physical properties, and more.
Having product families simplifies the way they are presented and accessed by other industries. The ability to download the relevant files directly from the Client’s website significantly facilitates the work of designers and encourages them to choose products from a specific manufacturer. A streamlined design process also appeals to investors, and having all elements in one add-in provides an efficient package.
Our Authorized Training and Certification Center, AEC Design, offers a wide range of trainings, including applications such as Revit, Build, and Docs. The trainings provide comprehensive preparation for participants to use the applications within their specified scope, at various levels of proficiency.
Digitization encompasses the entire construction sector, including manufacturers of building materials. It offers not only tools for more efficient work but also processes and solutions that enhance the quality of services provided. Undertaking digital transformation in a manufacturing company will operationally increase work efficiency and strategically enhance competitiveness in the market, enabling participation in major cross-industry projects.
What can you gain from implementing CDE platform and BIM methodology?
Perhaps you are wondering if you are ready for digital transformation. If so, we invite you to contact our experts. We will explain the benefits of implementing CDE and BIM. We will answer your questions related to software and cloud service purchases. We can offer training, customized implementations, as well as optimization and automation of work processes in your company.
Building material manufacturers aiming to participate in large, complex projects are increasingly encountering the need to adapt their work standards to the BIM methodology. This is driven by the potential for process optimization and the ability to plan work, schedules, and budgets more efficiently.
Furthermore, incorporating cloud-based tools into the BIM methodology opens up entirely new possibilities for manufacturing companies.
