    AB104-6: Should We Ever Stop Modeling in Autodesk® Revit®? When, Why, and What Should We Model

    Instructor: Jeremiah Bowles
    Class Description: During this class we will discuss the differences between these models: analytical, constructability, and as-built/FM. We'll discuss how architects can again become master builders. This will be a collaborative session, so be prepared to share and discuss successes and failures in modeling too much and/or too little and the challenges around each. We will discuss and record what the group's opinions are and also what tools we think are missing for aggregating model data and what to propose to Autodesk for future areas of improvement. Come and discuss challenges, real world problems, missing and proposed tools, and how and why we should move towards a true modeling-based concept. Discuss the advantages of Autodesk Inventor interoperability and options for success. Establish a checklist for deciding when we should stop modeling based on project size, scope, and contract. Also we will discuss how to leverage all those great AutoCAD Architecture tools for prefabrication and manufacturing in Revit and whether or not we should move to interoperability similar to the relationship of Revit Structure and AutoCAD Structural Detailing. What is the way way for the industry to leverage Autodesk Inventor without parametric parts? The result of this discussion will be to establish best practices on when to stop modeling and start detailing.

    MP308-1: How to Plan for Success in Your BIM Projects

    Instructor: Andrew Bagnall with Paul Hellawell
    Class Description: This class will explore some of the challenges and pitfalls that need to be overcome to get the most out of your BIM project delivery method and will explain some of the fallacies surrounding the topic. All too often project teams set out on the road to BIM, but change very little about their project approach other than their software package. This session will demonstrate that achieving a true BIM result involves undertaking a shift in thinking and restructuring of traditional project team roles and responsibilities. Topics covered will include: BIM deliverables and how they can differ; adding value to the design process using BIM; adding value to the construction process using BIM; effective BIM design team structure; and the challenges of adopting BIM in your workplace. If you are involved in any of the facets of building design, construction, or management, this session will appeal to you. Some knowledge of the Autodesk® Revit® suite will be helpful but not essential.

We will also work with Feature Data Object (FDO) and Data Connect to connect to multiple GIS data and create thematic stylizations.

    GS322-2: Analyzing Facility Management Requirements for Digital Cities + 3D Facility Management Based on CityGML

    Instructor: Andreas Wagner with Florian Albrecht
    Class Description: In the future, Facility Management (FM) applications in 3D will require connections to the building's surroundings. Autodesk's Digital Cities Initiative provides a generic approach for a platform that supports geospatial applications across the entire city administration explicitly including FM. Such an open perspective on FM embeds the building in its surrounding (urban) environment.
    Based on workshops with the administration of the City of Salzburg, Austria, we investigate the requirements of a Digital City that integrates FM with GIS. Workflows and their related processes are analyzed in terms of their requirements for supporting data models.
    Next, we demonstrate how a combination of architecture (CAD) and GIS in 3D facility management applications based on the standard CityGML can be achieved. This part of the class lends a more practical touch since it is based on a real customer example.

    GS214-1: ORA...What?! Using Oracle With AutoCAD Map 3D and Autodesk Mapguide Enterprise

    2010 Autodesk University course handouts for facility owners and operators.

    FM332-1C: Facilities Data: Whose Responsibility Is It?
    Instructor: Sean Benson
    Course Description: To avoid losing valuable data and time, the responsibility for data in a BIM model should be clearly defined in a BIM Execution Plan for FM. The BEP is a document agreed to by owner and provider that defines deliverable requirements. With BIM data immediately available upon project completion, there is a large push to leverage the data in other organizational Information Systems. BIM Execution Plans are common in the building industry, but often leave undefined what happens to the data after hand-off. Determining who will be responsible for the data during its life cycle is difficult and must be decided before work begins, often for legal reasons. The class will discuss different roles in the BIM process, and solutions for determining what is appropriate for a given building project. The class will focus on the importance of creating a BIM Execution Plan (BEP) for FM to clarify the parties and systems responsible for different processes and data during the building life cycle.

    FM328-1C: Gone Green: Now How Do I Avoid Going Brown?
    Instructor: Sean Benson
    Course Description: Organizations should keep track of efficiencies gained with green projects in order to maintain the lower costs, benefits of certifications, and social distinctions which the projects produce. While "Going Green" is generally accepted as environmentally and socially beneficial, most organizations won't go green without economic justification. There are a number of tools that help an organization plan, forecast, and design the greening of their infrastructure, but once the decision to go green has been made and implemented, it is just as important to track actual and forecasted performance to avoid losing efficiency and certification. A good IWMS system can help compare performance forecasted during the planning and construction of green infrastructure, to actual as well as on-going performance for analysis and continuing accreditation, and, to avoid going brown. This class will discuss how to track energy, maintenance, and capital costs, and LEED® and Energy Star certifications.

    FM314-1C: Modeling for Architects, Information for Owners, and Technology That Makes It Easy
    Instructor: Sean Benson
    Course Description: There are a variety of technologies available to help AEC firms easily transfer BIM data to owner information systems without getting bogged down in data management. Technology now allows firms to spend energy and resources on building design, modeling, and construction, while meeting data requirements. More and more building projects include requirements from owners that data created between the planning and commissioning phases of the project be passed on to the systems used for managing operations and maintenance, i.e., IWMS, FM, CMMS, Human Resources, Finance, Real Estate, etc. Similar to the way in which BIM applications are revolutionizing the building industry, new technologies like cloud computing, Web services, RFID, and mobile devices are revolutionizing a firm's ability to transfer data from BIM to owner systems. This class will focus on how AEC firms can use different technologies to meet requirements for data while staying focused on building.

    FM234-2C: The Sensible Guide to Knowing Everything about Your Properties
    Instructor: Doug Goforth
    Course Description: Two basic things are needed in the facility management world: what have you got and what can you do with it? The second question is best answered by knowing the first with precision. Managers of property, space, population, and density make decisions every day to maximize the use of their space. Those decisions can best be made by having everything you need to know at your fingertips. This class will focus on ways you can bring all of your information together so that you can make your best decisions based on accurate and accessible data. No one knows your business like you do, and sometimes a canned product might not be adequate. We will look at ways you can leverage your drawings and data for information that is important to you and your business.
