Industry trends and topics

Meeting project timing and sustainability expectations

Expectations are increasing for organizations to deliver more sustainable, safer assets in a shorter time. Autodesk’s solutions for Building Information Modeling (BIM) help rail owners, engineering service providers, and contractors access, integrate, and analyze information more holistically to increase productivity and improve the way they plan, build, and manage projects.

Providing a more comprehensive and accurate view

Take advantage of rich information in intelligent rail project models and get a better view of stations, tracks, and other structures. Evaluate alternatives faster, and create simulations and visualizations for faster approvals. Improve communication by creating a central point to help global field teams manage data, keep track of quality, check adherence to standards, and document projects.
