Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Use Autodesk Navisworks to link Clash Detection with Timeliner
  • Describe practical examples of using this process on the University of Virginia Old Jordan Hall Mechanical Upgrade project
  • Explain what discrete event simulation is and how it is applied in various industries
  • Identify construction processes that can benefit from discrete event simulation

Description

Description

Traditionally, Autodesk Navisworks software has been used either for clash detection or for 4D simulations. Less common is the practice of combining both of the tools into one process to perform discrete event simulation, or more simply, 4D clash detection. Discrete event simulation is a lean practice which is commonly used in many industries, such as manufacturing, health care, and even capital investing, but is just beginning to gain foothold within the construction industry. This class will walk through what discrete event simulation is and describe its various applications within the construction industry. The class will present a case study of applying the process to a multiphased mechanical upgrade at the University of Virginia Old Jordan Hall.

Target Audience

Target Audience

CAD/BIM Manager, Project Manager/Engineer, Users who are familiar with both the Clash Detection and Timeliner modules within Autodesk Navisworks, but who may not have experience with combining the 2 modules
