eggheads and BIMsystems jointly set new standards in product data management

eggheads, the specialist for product data management, and the BIM expert BIMsystems jointly optimize all processes around the digitalization, automation and management of product data. The combination of eggheads' future-oriented PIM system and the holistic as well as cloud-based BIM solutions for individual data management from BIMsystems creates new opportunities for the entire construction industry.

The digital transformation does not stop at the construction industry. No development in recent years has had a greater impact on construction planning and the construction process than Building Information Modeling (BIM). Whether building material manufacturers, planners, investors, general contractors or building operators, all are faced with the challenge of digitizing their construction processes. With infinite products or product data of different data statuses, it is up to manufacturers and distributors to restructure themselves with increasing digitalization and networking and to organize data according to the "single point of truth". Together with eggheads and BIMSystems, digitalized product management becomes child's play! eggheads Product Information Managament-System Suite complements BIMsystems diverse solutions for Building Information Management. The result: transparent and up-to-date maintenance of all product data centrally on one database and thus accessible for all parties involved.

With BIM and PIM to the digital product database - simple administration and central control of product data

BIM offers a forward-looking solution for the optimized planning, realization and management of structures with the help of software. In this process, all relevant building data is digitally recorded and combined with each other. In order to be able to generate BIM-capable data, manufacturers must integrate the product information (BIM content) in a PIM system and thus simultaneously ensure its efficient management, maintenance and use.

In most companies, product data exists in different departments with varying information status. The PIM system counteracts this and offers suitable modules for all-encompassing product data management. As a "single source of truth", all information is accessible in one place and is continuously maintained, making it available to everyone in a complete and up-to-date form with a high quality standard. The PIM system thus offers suitable modules for comprehensive product data management, which reduces data redundancy and simplifies data management. By combining PIM and BIM, data is maintained in a central location and BIM objects are automatically updated with BIM connectivity. The result: Enormous time and cost savings for all parties involved in the construction project. For planners and component manufacturers, this construction information serves as a central prerequisite for the planning method in BIM!

With eggheads and BIMsystems to more efficiency and precision

BIMsystems' diverse BIM solutions serve the maximally automated digitization of product data (BIM content), the networking of interfaces and the unhindered exchange of data along the value chain. With BIMsystems' globally unique cloud-based technical infrastructure for efficient data management - using the corma technology developed by BIMsystems - all digitized product data (BIM content) is stored in a central and web-based location - waya - right at the start of every BIM planning project. In the process, all data flow into a virtual data model, which can be efficiently created from the beginning and adapted to project-related circumstances.

eggheads offers with its eggheads Suite one of the most popular software in the area of Product Information Management. With almost 30 years of experience, they show expertise in the field of digital product data management. The PIM system eggheads Suite developed by them enables a description of product classifications, categories and parameters. It is a software for the maintenance, administration and media-neutral storage of product data. Once entered and enriched, product information can be distributed in a wide variety of formats to a wide variety of sales channels.
With eggheads PIM system and BIMsystems corma technology to effective product management! eggheads Suite provides the product data defined for the object such as parameters, attributes and geometries. Through the interface of both systems, valuable product information from the PIM system is added to the data environment created in the corma technology. Time-consuming and error-prone manual data transfer and redundant product data are thus a thing of the past for manufacturers. And not only that! The central storage of BIM content in the BIM library of BIMsystems makes it possible to offer manufacturers direct insight into how the BIM content they provide is used. And designers benefit from high-quality BIM content in their respective planning status. At the moment, there are only few possibilities for component manufacturers to provide BIM content in an uncomplicated way. Many shy away from the effort of making their digital product data available for the further process. But through the exchange of product data between BIMsystems and eggheads improves the exchange of information and high-quality product information is available.
"The common goal is high data quality always based on an up-to-date database as well as data preparation - and all this during the entire life cycle of a building," says Gregor Müller (CEO BIMsystems). BIMsystems and eggheads form an ideal team to use data as efficiently as possible.
