Virtual Design and Construction - VDC

Virtual Design and Construction - VDC
With me and many, it might be BIM and VDC are the same.


So what and how VDC is different from BIM and other processes?

Virtual Design and Construction - VDC
VDC is Virtual Design and Construction, ya simple.... but let's further see in-depth and in detail.
VDC is the further integration of Building Information Modeling - BIM, a comprehensive project management scheme - PPM, and Integrated Concurrent Engineering - ICE. This process helps in better utilization of the project planning techniques, better and effective utilization of human resources, and completing clients and project objectives. So from this, we can get to understand, Bim is the utilization of 3D model in the physical and fundamental processes whereas VDC is the management of model and process and connecting it with risk management.

This is not only done in one or two steps... we need Integrated Team and Collaboration, Lean Process, Virtual Design and Build with Target Value Design are components of VDC - construction delivery system. I know this is too lengthy and technical to understand, 


So how can one get a step ahead from BIM and move on to VDC...?

Let's see, I will try my best to break it down properly...

1. Technical Skills
Knowledge of Standards
Knowledge of Codes
Contract to CAD Drafting Skills
Virtual Design and Construction - VDC
2. Software Skills
Autodesk REVIT for 3D
SketchUp for 3D
Tekla - Reliable alternative to Revit
Autodesk Navisworks for 4D and 5D
Primavera P6/MS Project for planning
Excel and Word for Documentation
Virtual Design and Construction - VDC
3. Soft Skills
Adopting New Software and Technical Skills
Adjusting and Work in Team
Communicate Small Issues well with Team
Understanding Contracts and Work Documents
Soft Skills - VDC
With this having your own way of expressing skills and networking process will help you kickstart your career. 
Hope you find this useful, do comment down your thoughts, training program suggestions, and best company practices so others can be benefited.

Great Man-Made River (GMR)

Libya's Great Man Made River: The Great Man-Made River in Libya is one of the most ambitious Civil Engineering Project in history of mankind.  In the year 1953, the Libya Government found out not only vast oil reserves but also vast quantity of fresh water locked under the strata, most of the water was trapped around 7000-30000 years ago which is divided in 4 different basins. The first basin is named Kufra basin which is neat Egypt Border which covers almost 35000 sq kilometer which is quite deep around 2000 m deep. The other basin is in Sirte Basin which cover 10000 sq kilometer, third in Murzuk Basin and the last in Jabal Fezzan Basin covering 4800 sq kilometers area.  The GMR project will be used to transfer water to North of the country to provide water for irrigation purpose for more than 6 million  people. This will be a changing point  for Libya and the Colonel Muammar Gaddafi called it the Eighth Wonder of World. The work started in 1984 of the project and estimated to be
