The federated team for better collaboration
After discovering the advantages of having a team dedicated to the management of its BIM library, we presented the typologies of solitary and centralised teams. In this article, we will discuss the notion of a federated team, which makes it possible to form a single centralised unit within which each organisation retains a certain internal autonomy.
So that the creation of a BIM object library team has no more secrets for you, download the complete white paper “What kind of team to manage your BIM library?“!
This type of team consists of a diverse group of decision makers and a representative, probably you as Group BIM Manager, Department Manager, Design Office Manager, or General Manager. There is also a subset of designers and managers who collaborate on the creation and maintenance of the object library. This is the right methodology when you want all decisions to be made collectively within the BIM library management team.
If you are interested in the federated team model, before applying it you need to know the advantages and disadvantages. You can find them here, in our comprehensive white paper “What kind of team to manage your BIM library?”.
The federated team doesn’t suit you? No problem, the BIM&CO team has developed three other models, including the hybrid model!
The hybrid model: between centralised and federated teams
The hybrid model between the centralised and federated team models allows you to ensure good coordination and cooperation between the members of your team.

This mixed model will allow you to easily define the roles of the different users and have a process to determine who to “talk to” for the system efforts outside. This will make the organisation of your BIM projects more fluid, ensuring greater efficiency and productivity from your library users.
