5D-Conference (BIM)

Future-oriented optimisation of construction processes

PERI involved in 5D planning

For PERI, 5D planning is a trend‑setting technology with which all construction processes can be planned and controlled – from the initial idea through to the actual operation of buildings. PERI has therefore been involved for quite some time now in enhancing its formwork and scaffolding planning procedures in order to process data that goes beyond the mere technical solutions.

PERI has long been using a specially‑developed project data management system (PDM), with which different users around the world can work together on a particular project. In the process, all of the project data is available online and is retrievable in real time.

The ongoing further development of the PERI CAD also makes it possible to create the most complex formwork solutions three‑dimensionally. The CAD system is used by both PERI design engineers as well as PERI customers.

Another innovation in the area of management of construction processes was placed on the market by PERI in 2012: since then, the myPERI online portal has been supporting PERI customers with process optimization on the jobsite. myPERI provides access to a comprehensive range of project data around the clock.

The goal of all PERI developments is the complete integration of the formwork and scaffolding solutions in future 5D simulations.

The use of BIM in the design process

The technology of process-oriented 5D planning creates new innovative framework conditions and possibilities for the construction industry. When using 5D planning, commonly used procedures of the "Building Information Modelling" (BIM) are supplemented by key information on the construction process. Technology that has already been successfully implemented in other industries is now increasingly being used in the construction industry. The aim is to create a continuous digital chain ranging from the planning phase and actual construction through to the operation of buildings. Thus, different action alternatives can be quickly and easily evaluated in project phases at a very early stage regarding their impact on costs, schedule and quality.
