Production time = Money. So how can we speed up production time? Whether you are a large design house or a one person show, we all suffer when dealing with large models, but why do we put up with it? We have multiple sources of families and families gather data, they pick up ‘data dust’ and grow and grow and then they live in our models increasing the size of our project files, what we need is a medic! Or Autodesk SEEK’s new solution – family quality control. But it goes beyond that, this session tackles large data, sourcing families and family standards for in house use. We look at how we are addressing this from a global perspective, implementing standards and working towards achieving a national standard.
- Appreciate the importance of family data.
- Manage data throughout the lifecycle of their project models.
- View data from a 50,000 ft. approach and address this from the ground up.
- Maximize production time – buys you more BIM budget.
Justin has been in our industry for over 25years, having climbed the ranks after his apprenticeship in the UK to BSE engineer, to lead coordinator and then to project management, he took his skills from the UK to Australia in the late 90’s for 2 years, he then moved to Canada in 09’ running & co-writing the 1st BIM 101 sessions. After establishing a reputation in the industry, REACH was founded in 2013 providing BIM education as part of the shift in industry process, now REACH has broadened its services to encompass all virtual design fields. As a post Executive Director of aceBIM, Justin still volunteers with this excellent association. His passion is in education and providing a new generation of engineers to enhance the industries future, making them the new leaders in infrastructure design through new collaborative and technological methods.
Jim Conger is a BIM advocate that speaks frequently at Autodesk University and other related events. Jim has worked in the construction industry for over 20 years and specializes in educating both the design/build stakeholders and the building product manufacturers how to communicate more efficiently with one another. When he is not speaking, he works with North American AECO and building product manufacturers driving innovations in workflow communications. Jim has seen the construction marketplace from many different angles, working as a manufacturer, contractor, distributer, construction marketing manager, and has chaired the technical committee for the Los Angeles Chapter of the Construction Specification Institute. One of Jim's goals is to help create an environment which the design tools provided by manufacturers meet the needs of their customers and help make the design workflow more efficient for everybody.
