The article discusses the concepts of information modeling and 3D modeling. The relationship between the concepts of a BIM and a 3D model is analyzed and the key differences are identified. The advantages of using a federated information model when creating complex BIM designs of processing plants are presented and compared with working in a single file. A brief overview of the existing software systems that may be used to create information and 3D models of processing plants is presented. The example of an information model design for the backfill material production shop based on the tailings of the Tominsky GOK concentrator is used to illustrate the interaction between various software packages related to the development of the corresponding sections of the 3D model (TX for the production technology, AP for the architectural solutions, QL for the reinforced concrete structures). The design algorithm used in these software packages is considered and the corresponding structural calculations are provided. The benefits and effectiveness of the corresponding software packages are described. The impact on the calculation quality and reliability, the time required for the design work, referencing between various parts of the design, the ability to search for collisions and subsequently minimize errors in the construction and equipment installation are also analyzed.
