The BIM Maturity Matrix (BIm3) is a Knowledge Tool intended to identify the current BIM Maturity of an organization or Project Team. The BIm³ has two axes - BIM Capability Sets on the vertical axis, and the BIM Maturity Index on the horizontal axis. The Matrix may be low in detail (BIMe Discovery Matrix) or highly detailed (BIMe Audit Matrix).
According to the BIM Dictionary, BIM Capability refers to the minimum abilities of an organization or team to deliver measurable outcomes. BIM Capability is achieved/measured through well-defined revolutionary BIM Stages separated by numerous evolutionary BIM Steps. Also, BIM Maturity refers to the gradual and continual improvement in quality, repeatability and predictability within available BIM Capability.
