The class, originally presented on 13 November 2017, initially looks at setting up an execution plan to give clarity on which team members are delivering what information and when.

The core part of the class will then look at how Autodesk Forge can be used as the platform to develop a collaborative cloud based solution to allow models and associated information to be viewed through the web-browser.

Learning objectives

  • Learn how the cloud is changing the way that we collaborate and how Forge can help
  • Learn how information traditionally distributed in paper reports can now be linked to the model in the cloud
  • Learn how to agree who is developing what information and when on a BIM project
  • Learn how Revit users can let other members of the project team benefit from the information they produce

To get the most from this class participants should have an understanding of the design and specification process for AEC projects. It is aimed at construction professionals that want to utilise technology to lower risks, increase efficiencies and provide a better service to clients. It will be of particular interest to Project Managers, Programmer/Software Developers, Building Ownesr, BIM/VDC Managers, and Architects.

Introducing Autodesk Forge and its role in BIM workflows: A success story with NBS
Autodesk's Brian Roepke introduces the company's Forge platforms and how they can help deliver as part of a BIM workflow. By way of example, Dr Stephen Hamil explains how NBS have utilised the power of Forge in producing the NBS Online Viewer.

NBS and Autodesk - the story so far
Back in 2016 it was announced that NBS has become the first UK organisation to become an Autodesk Solution Associate and means that both organisations will work more closely together to develop the next generation of information and knowledge management solutions. 

NBS and open standards for BIM
At NBS we are committed to supporting open standards for BIM. Furthermore, we have been one of the most active organisations in the UK involved in developing these standards and encouraging their use. Here we explore just what that means in practice.
