Common Data Environment

Design Data Management

Largescale Construction Projects involve various documentation activities across different phases of its Building Lifecycle Management process. Organizing and maintaining these documents is tiresome work that involves lots of hassles and project threatening challenges such as key documents getting lost, outdated data, the privacy of your confidential documents, failing to find the right documents when needed, unorganized mail trails to share documents, loss of productivity and many more. This is where the need for Common Data Environment becomes crucial.

A central repository for the construction team to store, maintain, control, and share all information about the project. Within the Common Data Environment of CloudBLM, data such as Architecture Models, Drawings, Assets, and Documents are stored and acts as a single source of information for the project. 

    Key Modules
  • Model Management
  • Drawing Management
  • Document Management
  • Design Data Management

Document Management

Document Management acts as a central repository for all the project related documents which will enable the users to create, maintain and modify all Construction Project related documents in CloudBLM which can be accessed from anywhere and anytime 

Key Highlights 

  • Central Administration of all the documents by Document Admin to control and govern the incoming data across the project 
  • Create designated Folders and Sub Folders for efficient user experience while accessing files 
  • Control mechanism to authenticate user access to the respective files and folders
  • Assign users to the defined roles based on your access level preferences
  • Upload single file or bulk files to the respective folder 
  • Systematic workflow to mobilize the approval process of a different set of documents
  • Track changes made within the document through iteration and revision system
  • All the major file formats are supported 

Model Management 

Models published from the Native Software are stored, where they are organized based on projects, sub-projects, and the parent models 

Key Highlights

  • Organize the model based on Projects and Sub-Projects 
  • Audit Trial - Track iterations and revisions of the models
  • View models in 3D Viewer 
  • Create/Save markups of models in 3D Viewer 

Drawing   Management

Drawing Management is a repository to upload and stores 2D Drawings generated from design software like Revit and allows them to be viewed as PDF documents 

Key Highlights 

  • Pre-defined folder hierarchy is set for drawing management 
  • Designation permission for each folder and drawings for data access control 
  • Create issues and raise RFI from a drawing that can be assigned to the respective role on a real-time basis
  • To highlight a particular section of the drawing can be done through markup functionality which can be raised as an issue or RFI if required

Design Data   Management 

Design Data Management is a tailor-made solution for all your cross-functional construction activity needs. With the CloudBLM Project Management solution, the organizations can create multiple sub-layers of projects within a Global project or the main project which envisions to diversify the goals of all the sub-projects, yet align to the overall construction goal of the Global Project. Publish Assets from Revit to CloudBLM which can be exclusively used for your projects. 

Key Features 

  • Publish Design - Publish Design data to Project/Subproject from Native apps   
  • 3D Viewer  - View your published designs in 3D Viewer 
  • Role Assignment  - Define the access levels of users within the project by assigning roles 
  • Project Hierarchy  - Group projects based on hierarchy to easily delegate responsibilities   
  •  Publish Asset  - Maintain and control all the project assets gathered from the design data 
  • BXF - Native Exchange  - Exchange design data across multiple MCAD, BIM, and Design platforms   

Project Hierarchy: 

Plan, track and analyze model information to improve productivity 

Help your team stay organized during the entire project lifecycle. CloudBLM enables users to save efforts throughout the process and gain full visibility into the construction projects with all project information in one place. Flexibility/ Integrations/ Cross Platform 

Projects created hierarchically enables virtual grouping of huge projects which gets aligned with the project's critical path which makes it a lot easier in delegating responsibilities 

Users can be added to a role, which defines the access levels of the user within the respective project 

Publish from Native Software 

While publishing the model to a project, the entire project information gets transported to the CloudBLM platform which consists of graphical and non-graphical information 

Now publish models across various BIM software platforms such as Revit, Sketchup, Rhino, Tekla, Inventor, and Solidworks 

Visualize 3D models published from various apps of the selected project with the 3D Web viewer.

Maintain and control all the assets related to the project gathered from design data within the model

FAQ

Who creates a Project?

Who creates a Sub Project?

Sub Project is created by a Project Admin. A Project Admin can create as many Sub Projects as required. Sub project is a logical partition of the project, since a project will have multiple consultants for different disciplines (Arch/Struc/MEP/Landscaping etc.).

What are the Key features of Project and Sub Project Management?

The key features of Project and Sub Project Management are Planning, tracking and analysing model and other data information to improve productivity in the world of Building Lifecycle Management.

What is the benefit of publishing the design data to CloudBLM?

The true value of BIM can only be realized when it is taken beyond the design team – to subcontractors, the owner and facility manager. Providing access to the model and allowing them to contribute and link other information would increase the transparency and will help the field engineers from last minute design related hassles and confusions.

What information can I publish from Native Software to CloudBLM?

While publishing the model to a project, the entire project information gets transported to the CloudBLM platform which consists of viewables and element information.

What type of models can I convert?

Any model type such as Furniture, Lighting, HVAC, MEP Elements, Structural or Architectural components can be converted.

What file types are supported?

Currently, all Revit Family (.rfa) and project (.rvt) files are supported.

Will the properties and hierarchy be transferred?

You can export including the part properties, colors as well as all geometries. There will be no loss in any meta data. The hierarchy will be maintained.
