The workshop highlighted the importance of integrating companies into the new BIM paradigm, not only as a trend that digitizes the sector, but as a crucial element for competitiveness, both nationally and internationally. The importance of BIM was also highlighted, not only in the ceramics sector, but also throughout its supply chain.
