New MicroStation add-on lets CAD managers manage every MicroStation workspace in their company without leaving their desks.
CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA - Axiom, the world’s most experienced developer of time-saving MicroStation software solutions, announces the release of Global Workspace ManagerTM which lets CAD managers set up, monitor, change and copy MicroStation workspaces and workspace configuration settings on multiple workstations from a single location.
Until now, managing MicroStation configuration variables has been a nightmare. CAD managers have had no easy way to ensure that MicroStation workspace configurations were properly set up and maintained. They either had to rely on each user to correctly set up and maintain his or her own workstation or walk around to each user’s workstation and manually set up and maintain its configuration. With Global Workspace Manager, CAD managers are now able to analyze and control MicroStation workspaces on a few workstations or a few thousand workstations from a single computer.
"A major problem that we hear from CAD managers is that they have no easy way to verify that workspace configurations are set up correctly and maintained. They usually end up having to walk around to each and every workstation just to check workspaces. Even if CAD managers use a protected, central network workspace, they still don’t know who’s working on which project, when a project was last worked on or even which version of MicroStation is installed on which workstation. With Axiom’s new MicroStation add-on, all that is about to change," said Greg McKinney, Axiom Project Manager. "Global Workspace Manager gives CAD managers control over system, application, site, project and user workspace configuration files on all MicroStation workstations at their site or even in the entire company — including configuration files that reside on a networked server. Thanks to this new release from Axiom, a CAD manager can now set up, monitor, debug and change these configuration files on a single workstation, a group of workstations or thousands of workstations — without ever leaving his desk."
With Global Workspace Manager, CAD managers can monitor who is working on each specific project, verify that the correct project or company standard CAD resources are being used for each project and make changes to the workspaces. Global Workspace Manager can also copy an entire project along with all its resources (seed files, DGN Libs, fonts, line styles, color tables and more) to another network server or to an individual workstation. Global Workspace Manager can show which MicroStation versions are installed on each workstation, when projects were last worked on and who worked on each project (this helps planning for allocating manpower). Global Workspace Manager can compare several machines to easily pinpoint errors on a specific workstation or just verify that they are all correct. Global Workspace Manager does all of this without CAD managers ever having to leave their desks.
