Become informed on how Navisworks can be used to check models on compliance to the agreed classification system. The adherence to a classification system can be seen as a performance indicator of model quality. The level of adherence can be used to communicate with fellow modelers as well as project managers who want to see projects on time and with reduced risk. As more models start to make it to the maintenance cycle the model quality at a deeper level becomes more critical.
This track focuses on how to integrate model checking at a classification level.
Edgar is a technical visionary on how to use BIM. His experience within the AEC is widely varied. That is why for last 7 years (of his 19 year career) he has spent a great deal of time and effort, looking for a way to integrate steps within supply chain of a buildings lifecycle. As a manager he has always had a hands-on approach. That is why he can use fairly all products from Autodesk at an intermediate level, and its competitors that focus on AEC. He likes to challenge the status quo and enjoys stimulating others in realizing their dreams.

The design process is very different from the construction process. The design model is in a constant state of change. To date, contractors have had issues providing relevant constructability reviews because they are always a step behind. Constructability reviews are usually a reaction to a released set of documents. Design, trending, and analysis through the model enable contractors to interact with the Design Team in a more meaningful way. This process provides a regular feedback loop from contractor to designer on constructability issues. As a result, the contractor is able to deliver meaningful information at a time when the designer is still able to respond to it. This process takes little to no time on the part of the contractor or designer and provides a path toward a proactive constructability review. This class will review the process used by Kiewit Corporation and HDR, Inc., to create this unique model-based working environment.
