BIM (Building Information Modeling) and virtual design and construction (VDC) managers serve pivotal roles in empowering stakeholders across multiple disciplines and teams to fully maximize the BIM data stored in the model. Design models often lack construction data needed for downstream use, but adding customized information to a conditioned and structured model can result in a model that can be utilized from design to construction to handover. Currently, siloed solutions force teams to maintain multiple sources of truth for project documents at different project phases, resulting in heightened confusion. In this session, we will cover how project teams can incorporate integrated workflows with Assemble software, and get the full benefit of a common data environment (CDE) used by other Autodesk construction solutions, facilitating collaboration between project members to avoid duplication and mistakes.
The construction industry is changing. Skilled labor is in short supply and increasingly hard to find. Contractors are becoming more specialized. Productivity across the entire process has become a larger focus. One’s carbon footprint is being factored into operational strategy. And by 2050, we’ll have 2.5 billion more people living in cities.
These trends call for a new way of designing and building — to help make increasingly complex projects, less complex and shift the industry from a “project” mindset to a “product” mindset. This shift will help make the architectural design process more efficient, allow subcontractors to you start fabrication faster, respond to bids sooner, spend less time creating manufacturing related digital documentation, and standardize/scale their overall ability to produce predicable work.
In this session, Autodesk's top thought leaders in Industrialized Construction will talk about how to successfully shift a business to align with these new developing industry trends.
