Synopsis:

There has been a lot of talk about Big Data and Automation. This presentation is designed to demonstrate how to automate your BIM project reporting needs. Following the technical presentations, we will discuss the hard-hitting questions in an interactive panel session on the future of digital design.

Learning Objectives:

1. Automating data collection from Revit

2. Overview of PowerBi and Tableau reporting and data structures

3. Introduction to building customisable project dashboards in PowerBi and Tableau

Body:

There has been a lot of talk about Big Data, Automation, Model Audits and Analysis over the years.

This presentation is designed to demonstrate how to automate your BIM project reporting needs. Our hyper-geeks will illustrate first-hand how easy it is to set up a project dashboard that empowers project teams to be proactive while mitigating endless hours of manual processing and reporting.

Following the technical presentations, we have assembled a selection of digital thought leaders to discuss and answer – hopefully – your hard-hitting questions regarding big data, automation and will robots take my job in an interactive panel session on the future of digital design. A must-see presentation if you are managing multiple BIM projects.

Cherry will present the dashboards in use be the Aurecon Wellington office. Speaking to the strategy behind the development and composition particularly around what was included, and what was excluded.

Cherry will also talk to the data gathering tools in use to generate these dashboards. This includes the RTV Tools SQL based analytics function, and the Autodesk analytics add in, and Aurecon’s global BIM Track issue database, comprising over 70 million-line items.

Jasper will present the logic behind and why Warren and Mahoney are using project dashboards to assist with managing some of the largest projects being designed and constructed in New Zealand.

Jasper will discuss key lessons learned during his adventures into the world of ‘big data’. Strategies he used to overcome the many challenges faced when working with large complex projects and teams, including technologies used to remove the manual processing of tasks and to enable the collection and presentation of near-real-time data from ‘live’ project files. Finally, Jasper will summary his vision for the future of big data in AEC.

Following the technical presentations, our hyper-geeks, Jason Howden, Kevin Thickett, Cherry Man and Jasper Wong, will discuss and answer – hopefully – your hard-hitting questions in an interactive panel discussion on the future of digital design. Please come prepared to challenge our team in a lively constructive discussion on the future of our industry.
