Common Data Environment

Design Data Management

An integrated central repository for the project users to store, maintain, control and share all information pertaining to the project. CloudBLM platform enables users to collaborate from a Single source of truth, supporting digital storage (ISO 19650) of all BIM related information such as the BIM model, assets, drawings and documents.

Drive your Project in an efficient and transparent manner with CloudBLM’s Common Data Environment. It helps your team members by providing a centralized system to access all the project related information ranging from CAD Models, Asset Families, 2D Sheets and other key documents.  

    Key Modules
  • Model Management
  • Drawing Management
  • Document Management
  • Asset Management

Technology to take products from
an idea all the way to the end consumer.
Key Features

Publish Design

With our hierarchical folder structure, create and manage files systematically based on your organizational needs. With an enhanced access control system, secure and protect your data against loss or mismanagement.

3D Viewable

Unified solution to maintain and manage the global & project assets (Revit content) and their libraries to enforce organizational standards throughout your projects.

Publish Asset

Our audit trail system allows you to see the big picture of your business, allowing for efficient decision-making. 

Project Hierarchy

Enable teams to create, monitor, revise and track the data, to ensure the solution reaches a consensus about the quality of the result. With Iteration Management, it is impossible to lose track of your ever evolving data.

Role Assignment

CloudBLM provides a structural control mechanism that will enable the administrators to create unique workflows for the document transitions and approvals. This also makes CloudBLM adaptable to any existing internal workflows in your organization without disrupting the current setup.

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 

The models published from the authoring CAD tools are organized according to projects, sub-projects, and their relationship to the parent models 

Publishing models from native software without losing design data is vital for collaboration between design and execution teams. It also enables enhanced tracking of all model data including the revisions and iterations.

Utilize the IFC OpenBIM Import & Export to collaborate with users outside the CloudBLM platform. Models from different CAD authoring tools can be combined to create a federated model and download as a single IFC file.

Key Highlights

  • Organize the model based on Projects and Sub-Projects 
  • Audit Trial - Track iterations and revisions of the models
  • Analyze and Review models in 3D Model Viewer  
  • Create/Save markups of models in 3D Model Viewer 
  • IFC Import/Export

Drawing   Management

Drawing Management is a central repository for storing all project related 2D Sheets generated from CAD tools such as Revit, and it allows you to review and manage them within CloudBLM.

Key Highlights 

  • The hierarchy of folders for drawing management is pre-defined 
  • Designated permissions for each folder and drawing for data access control  
  • Create issues and raise RFI from a drawing that can be assigned to the respective user on a real-time basis
  • Mark-ups on the Drawing to highlight a particular section of it which can be created as an issue or RFI if required.

Content/Asset Management 

Enforce organizational standards throughout your projects using the Global Asset Management and Revit Content Management systems to maintain and manage the global & project assets (Revit content) and their corresponding libraries.

The repository is a central location for organizing, managing, and sharing all assets. Ensure project teams are maintaining recommended standards. Provides access to the complete asset information and performs an audit. Reuse assets from one project in multiple other projects.  

Key Features 

  • Global Revit Content Management    
  • Revit Assets Management
  • Iteration Management  
  • Assets Repository  
  • Content Library Management  



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?
A Project is created by a Business Unit Admin who will assign a User as Project Admin. The Project Admin governs th2e entire 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 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.


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.
