This lecture will consist of a walkthrough of the door frame barcoding process and the integration with BIM 360 Field Issue & Equipment Tracking. We will take the class through a step-by-step process of Project Understanding & Setup, BIM 360 Field Information Inputting and Setup (2 options), On-site tagging and finally Issue and Equipment tracking using BIM 360 Field and the Barcodes. The class would conclude with a Lessons Learned segment.
- Understand issue tracking using BIM 360 Field software and barcodes
- Learn how to set up, create, and produce barcodes for doorframes on a project
- Understand on-site implementation of this process
- Understand and learn how to communicate efficiencies gained by this process to company and project stakeholders

Ryan Moret graduated from Texas A&M University’s College of Architecture with a Bachelor of Science degree in construction science in 2010. His first assignment upon graduation was the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center in Fort Hood, Texas. He started work at the project as a new project engineer, and over the course of 4 years worked his way up to assistant superintendent. He provided job-site level support and implementation for BIM 360 Field software for this pioneer project within McCarthy Building Companies, and he opened doors for further implementation. He utilized equipment tracking within BIM 360 Field software to efficiently track materials, installation, and quality issues throughout the job site. Moret is now the field solutions manager for the Texas and Southwest regions of McCarthy, where he focuses on new technology implementation, deployment, and process improvement concentrated around the use of technology. When Moret is not at work, he enjoys volunteering, biking, going to the gym, watching movies, and indulging in all-you-can-eat salad bars
