With technology evolving and changing the way that we make things, our design models should evolve as well. This lecture will share how Purdy-McGuire, Inc., (PMI) has evolved our models from static, manually drafted documentation to dynamic models with data driven throughout a model. This has been accomplished through a master standard that everyone involved is building from. With a common foundation, teams are able to share content that has been developed.
- Determining the fundamental platform for a model
- Using any Family from any source
- Developing Tags for Quality Control and Presentation
- Developing Schedules for Design Assist and Presentation
