Lunch and Learn: dRofus – Your cloud-based data management solution for BIM
June 13, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 4:30 pm
Join SolidCAD on Wednesday, June 13 for a Lunch and Learn presentation about dRofus, a cloud-based planning, data management and BIM collaboration software that supports all stakeholder workflows. See how teams can achieve real time, collaborative access to shared information throughout the building lifecycle.
11:30 am – 12:00 pm – Registration – Coffee/Tea and Snacks
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm – Introduction and Hands-on demonstration of dRofus – (45 mins – 1 Hour)
David Spehar, Customer Solutions Manager at dRofus Inc. will show how the bidirectional data sync with Revit and ArchiCAD provides your projects with accurate program validation from early planning through construction. Learn how to get all of your project’s information out of various spreadsheets, pdf’s and models into a shared location for true collaboration through a product demonstration.
1:00 pm – 1:15 pm – Break/Q&A
1:15 pm – 2:00 pm – Lunch Included (45 mins)
2:00 pm- 3:00 pm – Presentation: Using data to fix what BIM Broke (1 Hour)
In addition, Spehar will address some of the common struggles with managing client expectations, quality control, scope creep and deliverables. At this event he will talk about the next evolution in project delivery and how shifting from model-driven to data-driven workflows can help fix what’s still broken. He will break down the concept of using data to drive model development rather than being a byproduct and gains that can be achieved across the project lifecycle.
3:00 pm – 3:15 pm – Break/Q&A (15 mins) – Coffee and Snacks
3:15 pm – 4:00 pm – dRofus for COBie
Many building owners are starting to realize the benefits of the “I” in BIM and how the information can be used to support lifecycle facility management. Because of this, building owners requests for data deliverables are becoming more common and more complex. While the requirements for a data deliverable format vary, COBie has become a common format amongst many owners. In this session, we will demonstrate how dRofus is being used as a platform for the shared collection of COBie data connected to BIM. We will show how the data can be captured, synchronized with models and exported into a true COBie compliant Excel.
4:00 pm – 4:30 pm – Q&A/Closing
