Building Information Modeling (BIM) has enabled a richly detailed and collaborative approach to the way buildings are designed and constructed.
What it lacks, however, is a way to easily scale to the portfolio-level and connect with business data.
Archibus Smart Client Extension for Revit addresses that need with a true BIM 4.0 application designed from a facility manager’s perspective.
This gives users a comprehensive view of an organization and its processes.
In addition, the Smart Client Extension implements rules and workflows that coordinate the bi-directional data exchange and updates the BIM model itself, to keep everything in-synch.
More recently, Autodesk Forge integration into the Archibus program, which allows better faster flow of information from the Revit model to the Archibus database to be used for on-demand and preventive maintenance tasks.
