Is BIM fundamentally flawed in the design-bid-build & operation process?

...and then I read something like this today that confirms there are others out there with the same thoughts...

I just read a post asking if BIM fundamentally flawed in the design-bid-build & operation process?

NO. BIM isn’t fundamentally flawed.

BIM is, however, a relatively new disruptive technology that will alter the way people involved with buildings work together: owners, architects, engineers, contractors, oversight groups, and other constituencies.

Examples of BIM applied in the O&M space exist, however, they have resulted from custom integrations of various products/technologies/processes… CMMS, CPMS, standardized reference cost databases,etc.

Also look a onuma.com to see how a “portal-based” approach can be applied in the same area.

BIM is not simply 3-D CAD… as the vendors and many users have as their current focus. Integrating cost, time, function, and associated decision support metrics, mechanisms is BIM.

Lastly IPD, JOC and other “processes” blow away design-bid-build. Neither are “new” but our industry as a whole is a laggard to new processes and new technology.
