The Year of the Deliverable...

Managing BIM DeliverablesSpecifying and receiving the information your organization needs

     Brought to you by Autodesk and CADD Microsystems


Basis

Starting with the “Data” session at the CFTA Unconference last August and through several threads on the CFTA list serve, the subject of deliverable requirements / BIM Deliverables seems to be one of great interest to CFTA members.  Some of the topics gleaned from the Unconference and the ListServ include:

  • Examples of BIM deliverable requirements
  • What to ask for in a deliverable.
  • Are you getting what you ask for?
  • What about COBie?  And the usefulness of COBie?
  • Data versus Models versus Drawings
  • How to get good DWG files when the consultants are using BIM


Purpose

CFTA Diamond Sponsors Autodesk and CADD Microsystems are partnering on a series of educational events centered around the summer CFTA conference, and designed to help CFTA member organizations answer the questions above and start the pathway to benefitting from BIM Deliverables.  The specific components to the series include:

  • Two 30-minute webcasts covering the most common topics at a high level
  • Companion 90-minute pre-conference sessions where we will go much more in depth
  • A session at the Conference where CFTA members Ohio State and Western Michigan will share some best practices from their experiences. 
  • The Unconference will have a table around BIM deliverables where the Autodesk and CADD Microsystems staff will be there to participate in these discussions

BIM Model QC Tools (A Deep Dive)

Go on a deep-dive of the free tools to both properly classify the elements in your models as well as perform quality control checks: the Autodesk Model Checker and Classification Manager for Revit.  Whether you are reviewing your models or having your consultants provide reviews before submissions, this session will give you the skills necessary to ensure you’re getting what you’ve asked for with your modeling requirements.  We will spend time on the different classification systems you can use, including FICM, as well as how to build your own custom model checks and reports.

Model QA/QC Process: How OSU and WMU Ensure They are Receiving Good Revit Models

How do higher education owners make sure they are getting high quality Revit models from their consultants?  They implement a sound quality control process!  In this session, see how The Ohio State and Western Michigan Universities have customized the Autodesk Model Checker and Classification Manager for Revit to be able to provide these tools to their consultants (as well as use them internally) to easily validate that the models meet their BIM requirements.
