Revisions

Record important changes to a specification and compare against previous versions

Revisions in NBS Chorus are built around the process defined in the ISO 19650 series of standards. When modifications are made to a specification, the changes are automatically highlighted so that the recipient can see any new, amended, or deleted requirements.

Revisions can help to:

  • Reduce the risk on projects: Record publications as key milestones with fields for those working to the ISO 19650 series of standards and highlight revision information, so the whole project team is clear on any changes.
  • Speed up projects: This feature automates what would usually be a complex process and helps reduce the number of questions arising on a project, meaning it can be delivered faster.

This feature is available with an NBS Chorus Pro subscription; if you'd like to access the feature, please complete the form, and one of our team members will be in touch.

A preview of the feature can be seen in the short video below, taken from the NBS Chorus Pro launch webinar.

NBS Chorus Pro features

Typically, a specification is published as a PDF in its complete form. However, with Chorus Pro, you can export information in several different formats.
This feature allows you to invite users from external organizations to collaborate on projects. For example, you could invite the client or contractor to comment on the specification in progress or inviting a consultant or manufacturer into a part of the specification to help with the authoring work.
Create templates from scratch or reuse from existing jobs, meaning less time spent on repetitive tasks and more time adding value to a project. Easily create and maintain design standards and preferences, and build every new project from lessons learnt.
Record project decisions directly in your specification as it’s developed, e.g. a reason why a clause has been parked, a design preference or an essential health and safety requirement.
Organization Notes in NBS Chorus enables you to record best-practice and lessons learnt from previous projects. The information is only visible to users within your organization and, once written, can be accessed on all new projects.
Revisions in NBS Chorus are built around the process defined in the ISO 19650 series of standards. When modifications are made to a specification, the changes are automatically highlighted so that the recipient can see any new, amended, or deleted requirements.
Stylesheets in NBS Chorus is an innovative feature that enables you to create customised templates for your specifications which automatically include your or your client's brand and style.
