    Although industry has changed with digital transformation, the outputs delivered at handover to safely maintain and operate an asset remain widely the same. The reality is that handover data accuracy and delivery formats can vary dramatically, often making it difficult to adopt in operation without wasting time and money reformatting. While handover information has evolved from paper to somewhat digital (PDF, COBie, and IFC, for example), we still see common errors at handover. One reason is that our authoring tool databases can't easily deliver these standard formats. So, what if we could keep models data light? What if the person with the knowledge rather than the software skills could input directly into a connected data pool? What if we could see a history of design and construction information at handover? This class will show you how Perkins&Will is working to deliver, via a centralized platform, connected data sets that are open, flexible, structured, reusable, and extensible.
