"Generative tools such as Grasshopper are being utilized to explore architectural projects and influence design decisions with increasing popularity. Rapidly produced multitudes of options will not be utilized to full potential if entire design team assessments take days or weeks to fulfil. Maintaining and coordinating external documentation models is redundant and consuming work. To maximise the potential of these tools, teams must efficiently assess multiple objectives and criteria, to seek optimal solutions. Utilizing the generative information model as input to analysis and simulation tools (including structure, services, environmental, construction programming and cost assessments) can facilitate superior design decisions."
