Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to identify reasons for (features) and against (cost) migrating any specific project to the most current Revit version
  • Weigh the pros and cons as to whether or not to load and utilize the most current version of Revit on in-progress projects
  • Pinpoint common pitfalls that you might encounter (i.e., learning curve) as you upgrade/migrate your projects
  • Learn how to assemble “Lessons Learned” on upgrading projects based upon real-world feedback from others—in other words, what not to do

Description

Description

In the “real world” most architecture and engineering projects span multiple releases of Autodesk, Inc.’s, Revit software. In many organizations a question that comes up with every new release (every year) is: Which projects should we migrate to the new version and which ones should we finish in their current version? The intent of this roundtable session is to give PICs, project managers, Building Information Modeling (BIM) managers, architects, engineers, and others who are involved in long-term Revit software projects an open forum to discuss the best ways of dealing with the Autodesk yearly release cycle. We will discuss potential benefits (i.e., added functionality, performance enhancements) weighed against possible pitfalls (i.e., hidden costs, features that don't work as expected or as they did in previous releases) and how the decision to upgrade or not has to involve the entire collaborative Project Team. We will also talk about the pros and cons of skipping specific releases.
