CARL Software’s ambition is to become a major player in operational BIM solutions. Accordingly, it has enhanced the CARL Maps module of its CARL Source software package with solutions for interacting with data from digital models.
CARL Maps is a multi-scale solution for processing and interacting with maps (GIS), plans and BIM models directly via native CARL Source functions.
CARL Maps: expected benefits for operators
CARL Software has designed an IFC connector and implemented an API for incorporating 3D aspects of models into the CARL Source CMMS by integrating 3D viewing solutions available on the market.
This will enable technical departments to manage the maintenance of buildings and infrastructures directly in the CARL Source EAM/CMMS, using the digital models transmitted throughout the design phase. As soon as the digital completed work file is delivered, the technical department is operational, with access to continually-updated information to optimise its operational and maintenance tasks.
A solution devised with CARL Source users
The integration of BIM in the CARL Maps module is the result of discussions with two clients, HCL (Lyon hospitals) and SIAAP (waste water authority for the Paris metropolitan area), both of whom are modernising their digital applications for the design of new buildings and infrastructures. HCL hasintegrated the BIM model of the new building H at Lyon’s Edouard Herriot Hospital into its CARL SourceCMMS.
SIAAP is progressively integrating BIM models of its infrastructure, including its new biogas plant, into CARL Source.
