CS239232 - Optimizing Your Workflows and Reducing Schedule Creep through Custom Tools.

Session Description

Innovation is the key to thriving. With the requirements from clients becoming more focused on time, technology, and end results, how can you make sure to deliver? In this class, we will share the results custom development has had for Southland including metrics on costs and time. We will discuss the needs that led us to custom development and the process of evaluating existing solutions vs custom solutions.
Our partnership with Autodesk plus an internal developer allowed us to leverage the Revit API more effectively, have fast creation and implementation, and have a seamlessly integrated product. We will touch on Process Improvement and Process Reengineering in addition to Business Process Automation.
With Smart Buildings and tight Schedules, developing a tool that will save time in one area allows us to focus on the higher risk portions to deliver a better project. Join us to discuss how to determine what solutions would work for you – and gain a few lessons learned.
