Viewpoint Provides BIM Project Management Tools


Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) October 20, 2015

Viewpoint Construction Software® makes available the latest release of its suite of collaborative project management products, Viewpoint For Projects, including the browser-based BIM Manager Information Planner. The Information Planner now allows teams to check and track all project documents including model data, as part of the BIM Execution Plan. This includes the ability to separate all of the deliverables on the project and easily allocate and track them throughout the supply chain at the various work stages. With this release, Viewpoint is also unifiying the suite’s product name at a global level so Viewpoint For Project Collaboration and 4Projects by Viewpoint will now be known as Viewpoint For Projects.

Viewpoint For Projects is a collaborative project management solution that integrates the entire project team - owners, architects, construction managers, engineers, and subcontractors - to facilitate a truly collaborative building effort. The suite includes Document Control, Project Communications, BIM and mobile field capabilities that automate and better control the construction management process, ensuring the right information reaches the right people at the right time.

“Today, as part of managing projects, owners and contractors are faced with organizing enormous spreadsheets to track model data sourced from many, if not hundreds, of suppliers. The manual process of managing spreadsheets can result in a lack of project visibility, an increase in errors, delayed projects and increased costs,” stated Rob Humphreys, Vice President of Global Product Management. “With BIM Manager Information Planner, we’ve added the ability to track information at a detailed level, allowing project teams to easily identify what stage of the work has been completed, including who is doing what for each piece of the model whether it’s structural, mechanical or electrical. Being able to easily define who is doing what and when, and report and validate that information, adds up to reduced costs during design, through construction and operation and management.”

Additional enhancements to Viewpoint For Projects include an improved RAG (Red, Amber and Green) Report allowing users to see where errors or warnings are without opening the model, as well as the ability to locate their position using the new Model Viewer Mini-map - a 2D floor plan to improve model viewing and interrogation experiences.
