Optimize Your Document Management Process
There are quite a few options available when your project team is looking for a solution that can open, view, and analyze the drawings that you receive throughout the course of your projects.
The question is how confident are you that this labor intensive work helps you find the actual changes between drawing versions? Is your tool of choice capable of pinpointing which lines have been deleted, or which BIM elements have been added?
Additionally the “BIM Revolution” has resulted in an ever growing reliance on Building Information Models during all phases of a project. From coordination (clash detection, 4D simulation) to model-based quantity takeoff and cost planning, project teams have started to rely on BIM deliverables for downstream processes more and more.
This creates an emerging challenge for contractors, 2D drawings are your contract document and the 3D models drive your coordination efforts. Significant project risk can be introduced by assuming that the 2D drawings and 3D models are in sync.
Oftentimes designers and engineers run out of time and only modify 2D drawings derived from 3D models, but not the 3D models themselves! Discrepancies introduced between the two sources of information can have far reaching consequences that may be as serious as an incorrect location of an elevator shaft in the 3D model that is used for coordination.
Let us show you how Document Controller Standard can help your team!
