Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)

After a successful course, the student shall

Knowledge and understanding

- show familiarity with the product development process using advanced BIM-models.

Skills and abilities

- demonstrate skills in using BIM-based Design Authoring tools for a technical subsystem.
- demonstrate skills in using BIM-based Analysis tools using a BIM-model containing technical subsystem.
- demonstrate the ability to produce information delivery for construction and digital fabrication.

Judgement and approach

- demonstrate an understanding of the use of BIM-strategies and advanced BIM-models in the product development.
