In this session we will present how construction companies can capitalize on technology from Autodesk, Inc., to integrate data from disparate systems and provide value to clients. The basis for this session is formed by the story of construction giant J. E. Dunn Construction Group saving millions in cost avoidances by implementing a custom, cloud-based, Building Information Modeling (BIM) collaboration platform. Are you interested in engaging all team members with easy access to the right information? Is the lack of a single source of information for all project data (including BIM, schedule, cost, and so on) hindering your decision-making in the field? This session presents how Autodesk and J. E. Dunn partnered to create Dunn Dashboard, a groundbreaking collaboration platform to address these issues. J. E. Dunn will present the business cases and challenges faced in the industry today; then Autodesk will provide insights on how the company capitalized on powerful cloud technology to solve J. E. Dunn's challenges. We will also discuss effective practices and lessons learned.
BIM/VDC personnel interested in using Autodesk cloud technologies for improving collaboration for project teams
Manu Venugopal is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) enthusiast who focuses on using technology to improve business processes in the architecture, engineering, and construction-facilities management industries. He leads the development and integration of BIM 360 cloud-collaboration platform with ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, product lifecycle management, document management, project controls, or facilities management systems, and he plays a key role in spreading adoption of Autodesk cloud technologies. Manu plays many roles at Autodesk, including solution architect / customer implementation manager, Certified Scrum Master leading Autodesk teams through agile development processes, and API liaison for Autodesk Developer Network. Manu also designs and architects solutions for customers. Manu received his PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology under the tutelage of Professor Chuck Eastman. His doctoral research introduced a new software engineering methodology aimed at improving the interoperability of BIM systems, and it also introduced semantic web technologies to BIM.
Mortenson Construction has always had success in Navisworks project review software as a platform for 3D construction-phase coordination. Discover how we use BIM 360 Glue software for design-phase collaboration to reduce latency and improve communication. Iterative design coordination is often hindered by limitations in technology—design partners pass along their latest information on a specified date, but no one really has the most up-to-date data to work with. This results in inefficient meetings and longer-than-acceptable design schedules. BIM 360 Glue software enables the project team to have real-time design and construction data in a variety of devices and formats, effectively removing many technology barriers. Using real examples from various Mortenson projects, this presentation will show you how to effectively coordinate your design on an iterative basis using BIM 360 Glue software. See how Mortenson is utilizing its enterprise BIM 360 Glue Solution to drive adoption with project stakeholders.
With Building Information Modeling (BIM) becoming mandated for use in major construction projects, it is all the more important to be sure that stakeholders coordinate their designs regularly. This class focuses on BIM collaboration and coordination using BIM 360 Glue software, which delivers digital information across the project lifecycle to project stakeholders through cloud services delivered by Autodesk, Inc. This class also explains how the extended project team can better coordinate and communicate to review the latest project models and run clashes in real time, thus improving the entire collaboration process and saving money. Finally, this class will show how to take the model coordinate using BIM 360 Glue software and use it in Navisworks project review software for more detailed clash tests and 5D TimeLiner simulations.
In this lab we will introduce and work with BIM 360 Glue software for model coordination workflows. BIM 360 Glue software is a cloud-based Building Information Modeling (BIM) Management and Collaboration Solution that connects the entire project team and helps streamline BIM project review and coordination workflows. If you want to learn how to perform model coordination and clash resolution in the cloud with your extended team, or if you'd like to improve your existing desktop-based processes, this hands-on lab is for you. We will guide you through effective workflows for coordinating complex multidiscipline models using BIM 360 Glue software and better communicating with your entire team. We will also explore advanced options to track and manage clashes in BIM 360 Glue software and empower the extended project team with real-time, continuous BIM coordination to significantly shorten coordination cycles.
