11:30am EDT Presentation: Empower your team to solve issues faster. The evolution from Coordination to Collaboration.
Find out how you can centralize all BIM coordination communications, whether you’re working directly in Revit, Navisworks, an openBIM-compatible software, or just a web browser. BIM Track democratizes the coordination process and makes it easy to collaborate internally and externally.
11:45am EDT Panel Discussion: BIM Coordination Meetings - What's Your Secret Sauce Vol 2: Collaboration for the Win!
We have all worked on projects where some partners and stakeholders are simply doing the bare minimum to get the job done, or maybe even less! This slows the project down, causes issues and generally makes getting to the finish line more complicated than needed. The flip side to that coin is those outstanding projects, the ones where most or all of the partners believe in the value of collaboration, not just coordination. It is a win/win for everyone on the project. These projects get us excited about working in BIM and VDC again; they develop best practices and better knowledge-sharing ways to benefit the entire project team.
Join us as our panellists share some of their "horror" stories of poor coordination as a way to highlight the tangible benefits of collaboration. We all have our share of horror stories that are good for a chuckle or possibly a heartfelt cry, but thankfully our panellists are ready to share some of their wins, best practices, and tips & tricks that will lead to improved collaboration and workflows.
Panel Learning Objectives:
1. Understanding the benefit of genuine collaboration over mandated coordination.
2. What is the downside of poor communication & coordination, and what will it cost a project?
3. Learn from experts' past experiences about what not to do on your next project.
4. Tips and tricks to improve your collaboration workflow.BIM Track
