Digital transformation is breaking down silos one by one, and better collaboration raises bigger questions.
Questions such as: can owners and operators optimize their assets today and reduce future costs? Can design and engineering teams share data without giving up intellectual property? Can electrical engineers adopt new tools and workflows to design a renewable energy future?
Three big questions. Only one answer: Yes.
Tandem Extends the Digital Wire to Facility Monitoring
Data is becoming a critical business asset. Yet 95% of all data is not used in engineering and construction. Autodesk Tandem leverages BIM data to establish the existence and location of assets, enabling digital transformation for owners by connecting disparate operational systems and contextualizing them in a 3D environment, or digital twin.
Last year they introduced their digital twin solution, Autodesk Tandem, to provide a digital twin following the BIM process. This year, they are extending the value of Tandem’s powerful digital twin to monitor facility operations. Customers can now connect Tandem to operational systems and data to create a digital twin that provides insights to reduce costs and improve the occupant experience.
BIM information and asset operations are brought together in a single digital management solution
The post-pandemic shift to remote working has pushed building owners and operators to maximize the value and increase the efficiency of their facilities. Analyst firm Verdantix reports that 30% of facility leaders make cost reduction their top priority, and 22% are focused on decarbonizing their building portfolio. That’s why Autodesk has partnered with iOffice + SpaceIQ to enable smarter installations and better decisions, helping industry reduce costs and carbon.
Archibus is the company’s Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) software. The new Archibus and Autodesk AEC Collection bundle tightly integrates BIM, construction operations and workplace software for centralized data management. This helps building owners and operators get more value from their BIM data upstream and downstream. This alliance strengthens Autodesk’s operational building management capabilities to better support customers throughout the building lifecycle.
Info360 Plant brings an operational analytical platform to the water industry
In the age of climate change, water and energy conservation measures are not pleasant, they are essential. According to the EPA, municipalities and utilities could save up to 30% on energy costs by incorporating energy efficiency practices into water and wastewater treatment plants, which would improve sustainability. Info360 Plant is a cloud-based operational analytics platform purpose-built for the water industry and designed by water experts. It provides real-time, automated and actionable analysis and insights to reveal and resolve issues with justifiable data. Info360 Plant uses the power of digital twins to help plant operations teams deliver clean water, reduce their carbon footprint, manage and mitigate operational risk, reduce operating expenses, manage compliance and justify facility improvement projects.
Increased collaboration in the cloud
They also continue to invest in cloud collaboration and coordination for AEC customers to optimize design workflows, detect issues early in the design process, and accelerate project delivery time to reduce risks and costs and achieve better results.
Intellectual property remains protected thanks to advances in project sharing
Autodesk Construction Cloud’s Bridge tool, launched in March, enables cross-account collaboration, meaning companies can establish their project information in their own account and then share that information in a controlled way, eliminating errors and reducing project risk.
Enable better organization and collaboration for Civil 3D
Data management and collaboration are crucial for complex civil engineering projects. BIM Collaborate Pro leads the way in how civil engineers collaborate across project teams using the power of the cloud. With the upcoming Desktop Connector, collaborators can access relevant Civil 3D project data faster than ever on a web browser or on their local computer. With the launch of the new and improved Sheet Set Manager, users can manage and edit their documentation deliverables more efficiently. This allows users to create, delete, rearrange, and make changes to existing sheets. Enhanced collaboration support enables direct publishing to PDF and sharing of drawings with external stakeholders, all from the cloud.
Teaming up for sustainability
Climate change encourages innovation in the production, storage and consumption of energy. By 2040, 60% of the energy we use will come from renewables. And the forces disrupting the industry deserve paradigm-shifting solutions.
Recognizing the challenge, Autodesk has partnered with Schneider Electric to develop an electrical engineering design solution that integrates directly with Revit, creating more comprehensive and robust software that simplifies electrical design, analysis, and sizing. equipment with real-time calculations on a single BIM platform.
Advanced Electrical Design for Revit now extends the benefits of BIM to electrical engineers and designers, streamlining the way they work and closing critical gaps in BIM-based workflows.
The Advanced Electrical Design solution will enable electrical engineers to drive long-term digital transformation, delivering greater value to customers on their journey to the new energy landscape – a must for a sustainable future.
