5 Tips to Streamline Model Checking
August 4th, 2015 by Howard Davis, CEO
Today’s challenges around BIM are not about documentation and design, but around how to manage all the interactions and easily extract model data for use among all involved parties without risk of compromise. Assemble is continuing to innovate the market with our advanced customized reporting empowering AEC professionals to do their best work, optimize project outcomes and win work.
We recently hosted a webinar on Model Checking Made Easy. As a quick refresher, we put together a few quick tips to help you streamline your model checking using Assemble:
When it comes to checking values, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
As more contractors, owners and governments recognize the benefits of effectively using BIM data on a global scale, it’s more important than ever that users of BIM data applications are empowered to effectively check values, determine assembly code accuracy and create a clear accessible report. With Assemble’s automated value checking functionality, the days of tedious, error-prone manual checking are behind you.
Expect changes – the scary kind.
Speed bumps and shifts are par for the course. Use Assemble to address obstacles as they arise. Automated value checking not only ensures accuracy, but also efficiency; save valuable time by leveraging these tools to boost productivity and adaptability.
Leave a trail of breadcrumbs.
With the ability to save specific model data views for projects, you can refer back to particular steps in the process. Creating an audit trail as the model is developed enables you to retrospectively identify strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement.
BIM data is for everyone.
All users should be able to access and understand reports stemming from BIM data. With the onset of cloud-based sharing, standardization and model data ubiquity, more pressure is put on the AEC professional to produce reports that can be used across all roles and platforms. Assemble translates BIM data so that it can be used by engineers, managers and contractors alike.
Keep your eye on the prize.
Your dedication to model checking and value verification is vital. Even more important is using checking reports to reach the final goal. With Assemble, you have the ability to sync corrected data back into the entire model to progressively move towards 100% assembly code accuracy. Assemble gets you there faster.
