Experience collaborative model management in a secure common data environment (CDE), with seamless integration to the ecosystem and no additional software required for collaboration.
While open and transparent collaboration has become a well-known and addressed topic in construction and engineering projects over the last two decades, model management in BIM projects has been the preserve of specialists using proprietary modelling tools. The wider project team has been unable to easily participate in the design and coordination process as the BIM design information has been disconnected from them, dispersed across many different systems.
Most importantly, the critical model coordination process suffers from lack of flow across the applications landscape:
Slow progress and decision-making based on assumptions are the result of disconnected teams working with separated data and little to no transparency. Information spread over different systems creates multiple versions of the truth leading to lack of clarity, errors, and disputes—all impacting cost, quality, and schedule. This is not a basis for leveraging insights to improve and optimize processes.
Oracle Aconex Model Coordination Cloud Service simplifies model management by connecting teams, models, and all relevant project data in a true collaborative CDE. A powerful model viewer aligns the project team and the entire supply chain to the design coordination process, enabling all project participants to easily share, visualize, coordinate, review, and contribute to models across organizations. Accessing the CDE via tablet or web browser, design teams enjoy a single platform to query, communicate, and manage the coordination process with a dashboard providing a clear view of status. Teams gain the full benefits of collaboration, including a full audit trail of all decisions made during the project.
Built on many years of experience as the world’s leading construction and engineering project management platform, model-oriented projects now benefit from industry-leading security and collaboration. A sophisticated Model Server forms the center of the Oracle Aconex CDE, facilitating integration with most common authoring and model checking tools. Therefore, no additional management tools for issues and clashes are required. The entire project team benefits from the interoperability of Open BIM standards and can interact with models and participate in the BIM processes.
