Architectural and Engineering Document Control Challenges
The acceleration in the amount of data being generated by 3D CAD systems such as Revit and subsequently requiring management, together with a tightening of data standards is putting pressure on traditional document control and drawing management procedures.
Most traditional processes will still be working but are already struggling to cope with the increasing demand.
Additional data is also adding an unwelcome administration burden on teams who are increasingly spending more time on typical work in progress data management tasks and less time on fee earning activities.
Couple that with increasing expectation to deliver completed external projects to a common data environment (CDE), such as Aconex, Asite, BIM360, Viewpoint etc. where a single project requires thousands of individual gateway actions, and practices often find themselves experiencing an additional layer of complexity.
This of course also leads to a ramp up of associated data management costs further impacting business profitability and productivity.
How Cabinet Helps You
Cabinet delivers an easy to use file and drawing management system that streamlines and accelerates day to day internal workflows that are fully compliant to ISO 19650 standards, controlling typical CAD files (AutoCAD, Revit, MicroStation etc.), project files, office documents and other associated project data.
This includes the full document workflow including revision controls from work in progress (WIP), through to the sharing and publishing stages of the document control process to either internal data systems behind your firewall such as local servers, Sharepoint etc., your own internal CDE or even automation the publication of client transmittals.
Deploying Cabinet across your practice or team will help you achieve a huge reduction in the number of unproductive and costly manual drawing management tasks your teams perform daily, whilst giving your business (large or small) enterprise class BIM document and data management control, robust audit trails, BIM ISO 19650 compliancy and a very welcome reduction in manual errors and non-billable processes.
Cabinet can help by literally slashing the amount of time your teams spend on WIP data management by up to 80%, resulting in very substantial time savings across the business.
