This class will focus on BIM 360 account administration. We will also pay special attention to BIM 360 Field project administration. We will cover basic setup, common workflows, and best practices for the use of BIM 360 Field software. We’ll point out some common areas of confusion for users, and the information account and project administrators should gather to better assist their project users in resolving reported issues. This session features BIM 360 Account Administration and BIM 360 Field. AIA Approved
Users designated as BIM account admins and/or BIM 360 Field project admins.
Don Simpson is a product support specialist for the Americas Product Support Team at Autodesk, Inc. Simpson supports BIM 360 software products and is based in Autodesk’s Boston office. In this role, Simpson is responsible for driving resolution to priority support items, serving as a key link between the Development and Product Teams, and is responsible for developing training content and delivering product training to groups within Autodesk. Simpson has supported BIM 360 Field software for almost 6 years, having joined Autodesk as part of the Vela Systems acquisition. Prior to supporting BIM 360 Field software, Simpson supported other software-as-a-service (SaaS) products in other software companies, and also performed other customer service functions.
The cloud is already helping thousands of architects, engineers, and contractors with improving communication and quality of designs for taking to site. This session will discuss the BIM 360 portfolio and how it can support you in design through to construction. You will get hands-on with Revit and Collaboration for Revit using BIM 360 Team to communicate with other team members to resolve design issues faster. Use BIM 360 Glue to spell-check your models against other disciplines. You will then investigate how your design can be taken out to site to help with commissioning and progress tracking.
Data sources in construction are exploding. Mobile devices and apps like BIM 360 Field are capturing and storing thousands of photos on typical projects. Drones, scanners, wearables and other construction management apps are adding to the mountain of data collected as a by-product of their use. To bring structure to our interpretations of these growing data streams, machine learning solutions are being applied to sort, filter, and surface insights so that projects can find the information they're looking for and make better decisions. This class will look at some early practical examples such as photo and video recognition for management and sorting of construction images, and predictive analytics in terms of highlighting high risk quality and safety issues. We'll also consider where the industry is going, as disparate data sources and applications become more integrated.
This class will be delivered by Kier Construction, a UK-based, industry-leading construction company, supported by Topcon and Autodesk. Kier will describe how they have applied Autodesk BIM 360 tools in collaboration with 3D laser scanners and total stations into their workflows on a complex construction project undertaken in the UK. Kier will demonstrate the key benefits of collaborative working, effective supply chain engagement, and adoption of technology on construction sites to realise and exceed client expectations. Using office-based software such as Navisworks, Revit, and ReCap, we will cover how using a variety of mass data capture techniques to gather as-built documentation combined with integrated on-site verification and management has improved efficiencies and reduced errors on construction sites. Kier will appraise the impact of using innovative new workflows to overcome interoperability challenges between several types of BIM authoring software.
Learn how to set up your project to measure the return on investment on both time and money when implementing new tools and processes on your project. This case study will show how Hunt Construction (an AECOM company) effectively utilizes multiple Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools to facilitate construction of large, complex facilities—and measures success along the way. Learn how these technologies can be set up to interweave with each other, and understand and interpret the metrics you can set up to measure success at both project and enterprise levels.
