    The world is moving from dead to live information. In the AEC industry this means a number of changes, but one of the biggest ones is the disappearance of drawings caused by the availability of model data. The main drivers for this change are two: model based construction, and model based operations and maintenance. Contractors and Building Owners are now requiring vast amounts of standardized and consistent data as part of their design team's deliveries. The problem faced by everyone in this change, is that the tools used for creating this data are file based systems made for delivering consistent drawing sets. Instead of displaying 3 parameters in a tag on a drawing accompanied with a schedule in Revit, design team's need to deliver hundreds of consistent properties connected with model elements across contracts. In this talk I will go through how design teams can adjust their processes to adapt to this change, and how contractors and building owners can manage it effectively.

    Key Learnings

    • Understand how to effectively create large and consistent model based datasets
    • Create and manage model based project data requirements efficiently
    • Move design and construction data out of file based drawing production systems and in to web based databases
    • Automate the validation process of delivered data
