Effective and efficient sharing and distribution of information is critical to the success of every project and when done well, this can demonstrably reduce errors, compress the project schedule, and reduce project costs.
Sharing and distributing information across a distributed project enterprise is difficult given the diverse data sources and formats that are required to complete a project.
i-models and the supporting tools and technology were created to facilitate the sharing and distribution of information regardless of the source and format of the information, enabling users to provide the information mobility required by their projects
