Why use Autodesk Tandem for AEC?

Expand to new opportunities

Offer new services such as building, delivering, and maintaining digital twins for client operations.

Strengthen relationships with clients

Improve exchange and visibility of data and reduce defects through a digitized handover.

Gain performance insights

Gather performance feedback on decisions made during the design-engineering process.

Key features

Quick and repeatable twin building

Asset information model

Structure data in a meaningful way. Use industry-standard classification systems to specify your asset breakdown structure or define your classification scheme.

Facility templates

Establish a repeatable process for building digital twins. Structure data and drive consistency. Choose templates from our library or customize your own to use across multiple facilities.

Parameter library

Engineer your data for maximum value. Define the properties of your digital twin to ensure it’s an accurate representation of the facility and aligns with the desired outcomes. Use standard and custom parameters to quickly import the data of interest from existing Revit files.

Tag assets

Manage asset data with Tandem digital twin software. Quickly locate or update the data and documentation for your assets and make everyday management and maintenance tasks simple and straightforward. (video: 1:44 min.)

Import BIM data 

Source project with data from Autodesk Docs through its integration with Tandem for AEC or manually import IFC and Revit models.

Understand building systems through context


Connect IoT and BMS data to the digital twin to understand the building operations via heatmaps applied to spaces and systems through time-series charts viewing up to 14 days of data. Apply thresholds to create quick insights and alerts on system performance.


Create a traceable network of building systems. Combine 3D BIM models with automation to mirror a building’s distribution systems, visualize networks, and correct breaks. Move upstream or downstream through a system to see assets in context and understand the spaces they serve.

System tracing

Visualize and understand systems in context. System tracing simplifies the navigation of complex models by automatically illustrating the path and elements within a system.

Navigate data quickly

Global search

In Tandem digital twin software, quickly locate documents, assets by type, specific assets, spaces, saved views, and dashboards. (video: 1:26 min.)
