Description

Description

Transitioning your company from 2D AutoCAD® software to 3D BIM, civil, or mechanical modeling is tough, but you already knew that. In this class, we learn the key factors of 3D work process success by examining common causes of transitional failure. Key topics include user transition, software transition, ideal hardware configurations, IT issues, training, standards, and management support. We use a chronological approach, taking you from required planning and budgeting to testing through implementation and training. Along the way, real-world tips on how to manage resistance to change and management hesitancy are presented in the framework of saving time and money. No matter where you are in your company's 2D to 3D transition, you're sure to pick up a few good ideas on what not to do in this informative class.
