20 Why ProjectWise and Revit? User Demand – From the Building and Architectural Practices of Current ProjectWise Users – A/E, EPC, Owners and Contractors – Standardize on Work-Sharing Platform Bentley ProjectWise Product Strategy – Be the Best Work-Sharing Platform for the AEC Industry – Multi-Office, Multi-Application, Multi-Discipline – Format, Application Agnostic – Invest Heavily in Application Integration

21 The ProjectWise Integration for Revit Overview

22 Integration for Revit Enables Distributed Revit Worksharing with Large Models – Allows Revit Users to Collaborate with the Same Central Files Regardless of Location – Available to Entire Project Team – Eliminate FTP/Robocopy Model All Users Use Revit the Way You Want them to Provides structure to your standards – Eliminate Redundant Data and Servers – Powerful Search Capabilities to Find Content – Control Updates to Families, Details, and Templates

23 How it Works Integration Server – Manages Central Files – Core of ProjectWise Brain Main Office Texas Regional Office Michigan WAN

24 How it Works ProjectWise Caching Server – Serves File(s) from Office(s) to Office(s) – Reduces/Eliminates Trips Across the WAN to Access Files – Passive and Active Caching Main Office Texas Regional Office Los Angeles Regional Office Michigan WAN

25 How it Works Delta File Transfer (DFT) – Enables WAN team members to work at LAN-like speeds – Only transfers the changes to the file over the network – Reduces the overall network – Works from anywhere, no appliance needed – Works for all ProjectWise users Main Office Texas Regional Office Los Angeles Regional Office Michigan WAN DFT

26 Effect of Delta File Transfer Value of DFT to Revit Users – Available to All Users – Eliminates FTP\RoboCopy Revit workflows where DFT is used includes: – Synchronize to Central – Reload latest – Reloading changed linked files – Subsequent file open (non-worksharing mode) – Import/Export

27 DFT Impact on Revit Files Tested Revit Synchronize with Central operations over a WAN between 2 cities 4,400 miles apart – Average 135 ms latency Examined the performance with and without WAN hardware acceleration Tested performance of a large change – 60 MB Central file -> synchronized 7 MB of data

28 Test Results Tests Synch Time (min) Revit over WAN~6.5 ProjectWise-integrated Revit over WAN~1.5 7 MB change synchronized with a Revit Central file 4,400 miles away with a network latency average of 135ms

29 Test Results Tests Synch Time (min) Revit over WAN~6.5 Revit over WAN with hardware acceleration~2.5 ProjectWise-integrated Revit over WAN~1.5 7 MB change synchronized with a Revit Central file 4,400 miles away with a network latency average of 135ms PW Speed Up 4.5x 1.75x --

30 Results Interpretation ProjectWise Delta File Transfer provided ~4.5x performance improvement compared to working on the WAN ProjectWise DFT provides 1.75x performance improvement compared to working on the WAN with a hardware network accelerator ProjectWise is compatible with pre-existing hardware accelerators

31 The ProjectWise Integration for Revit The Details

32 ProjectWise Integration for Revit An Extension to ProjectWise that allows interaction with the Revit Applications and Revit Data Supports Worksharing and Non-Worksharing Projects Brings Well-Established ProjectWise Technologies for Revit Users – Delta File Transfer (DFT) – Link/Reference Management – Centralized File Management – Security and Access Control

33 Working in Revit from ProjectWise

34 Revit Data Managed by ProjectWise The User Workflows are almost the same as when working without ProjectWise ProjectWise provides a Structured Environment for managing Revit Data – Everyone access the data from the same place – No file shares to manage – Ensure only the intended people have access to the project data – Use ProjectWise project templates to accelerate project creation

35 Creating a Central File in ProjectWise

36 Project Insight for BIM Coordination and Management Central File Audit Trail Linked file display Dependency Management

37 Audit Trail Events ProjectWise Audit Trail – When was the File Modified to be a Central file? – Who has taken a Local Working copy of the Central file? – Each Synchronization With Central event Who?, When?, From What Computer?

38 Model Dependency Management

39 ProjectWise for Managing Standards ProjectWise has been used for years to manage CAD standards: – Control access and updates to MicroStation cells and AutoCAD blocks – Search for content by document name, metadata, or project properties – Provide document naming controls Avoid re-work or rejected work due to standards compliance issues Save time finding the correct content

40 ProjectWise for Managing Standards

41 ProjectWise for Managing Content Manage and access Revit families (RFA files) and Revit templates (RTE files) in and from ProjectWise – Use integrated search dialog in the load family process – Controlled access to standard details ProjectWise Explorer functionality valuable for Revit content management – Thumbnails – Custom environments and interfaces – Views – Access control

42 ProjectWise for Managing Content

43 ProjectWise for Revit Content and Detail Management Benefits Manage one copy of each RFA – Eliminate managing duplicate files throughout your organization – Allows for server consolidation Search tools make it easy to find the right content Maintain your content as your competitive advantage Simply security and control updated for content and details

44 Collaboration Between Revit and AutoCAD Users

45 Large Projects Can Use Multiple Platforms CAD and CAD-based products are still used for: – Survey – Site design – MEP – Roads and rail – Hydraulics – Landscaping design Need a structured process for Revit-CAD workflow data exchange and interoperability

46 ProjectWise for Revit-CAD Interoperability Focus on AutoCAD and Revit users working together Eliminate: – Design conflicts between CAD and Revit users – , DVD, FTP file transfers – Accidentally using stale data – Missing deadlines due to communication problems Integrated Revit commands with ProjectWise: – Export to CAD – Import CAD – Link CAD – with notifications on changes

47 CAD/Revit Interoperability

48 Additional Functionality Disable ProjectWise Integration option Manage RFA-type catalogs as sets – Ensure type catalog set is not broken by move or rename – Scan Reference discovers and builds RFA catalog sets Decal Type Images stored in ProjectWise Background Images from ProjectWise when rendering the open project in Revit Export rendered image to ProjectWise Notification messages include the user name who has locked the file.

49 Extending Revit Data Integrated ProjectWise viewer – Displays digital photographs, Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, and any other content that can be viewed by an ActiveX viewer control Allows for model view and review as a 3D PDF from ProjectWise Explorer without opening the file

50 Extending Revit Data ProjectWise Web Server – Integrates ProjectWise content with Microsoft SharePoint Set of Web Parts that expose ProjectWise content – Can be deployed in a non- SharePoint environment ASP.NET web page Surfaces Revit data to the project portal

51 Extending Revit Data – Bentley Navigator i-Model Creation Directly From Revit

52 Summary

53 Summary of Benefits 1.Enable all project users to work with the project data the same way 2.Speed up Revit file synchronizations 3.Provide structure processes for managing, updating, and distributing Revit content 4.Easy to collaborate with and exchange data with CAD teams 5.Know everyone that accesses and updates the Central file (and when)

54 Summary of Benefits 6.Know immediately when linked files change 7.Easily incorporate Revit models with project data into Project Web Portals 8.Control updates to construction details – and easily make them available to everyone 9.Eliminate FTP and other creative file transfers 10.Launch the file with the correct Revit application – every time

57 What Users are Saying We currently utilize ProjectWise in 32 projects, across more than 1300 users, representing $3 billion in construction costs alone. As most of the design data we currently manage is Revit based, ProjectWise V8i (SELECTseries 2) with Revit integration, as well as Delta File Transfer, will further enhance our Revit community by incorporating their workflows with supercharged network performance. ProjectWise has been tremendous in helping us collaborate with our business partners. – Radhika Menon, CIO
