       Improve Work Order Management with Model Data

Mark Mergenschroer, Autodesk's Customer Success Engineer, and Peter Costanzo, IMAGINiT Director of Facilities Management show how you can use Revit floor plans in Autodesk’s BIM 360 Ops to determine the location of nearest tickets and directions to an asset. You’ll also see how managers can view open tickets as a heatmap, and how the system can be extended to track mobile assets with iBeacons. Using existing wi-fi, BIM 360 Ops doesn’t require additional hardware, but allows you to convert information models to indoor maps.

Leveraging Your models for Technician Wayfinding and Work Order Management 

Learn from Mark Mergenschroer, Autodesk's Customer Success Engineer, about hot to convert your building information models to indoor maps to get more value from them. This class will show how to use a Revit floor plan in Autodesk’s BIM 360 Ops to show technicians the location of the nearest tickets as well as directions to an asset. Managers can view open tickets as a heatmap. This technology uses the building’s existing wi-fi infrastructure and does not require new hardware. We will show how it can be extended to track mobile assets with iBeacons.
