What to expect during the event
A number of “coordination” tools are currently employed across the industry (BIMCollab, Revitzo, ACC Issues, Navisworks, to name just a few). This talk will consider coordination from a couple of key aspects. First, we will take a look at considerations around choosing a tool to utilise on a project, why you may prefer one over another. We will also consider the difficulties of implementing such workflows on project, for example who should provide the relevant software licenses, who should manage user protocols, etc.
We will also take a look at the project level implementation of coordination tools and considerations around preparing a project coordination protocol. These tools allow you to record ‘priority’, ‘deadline’, etc. but without clear definition and agreement, that information means practically nothing. This talk aims to help you build a framework around your chosen coordination tool.
