When handling projects based on the BIM method, you must make sure that all project members always know exactly what to do.
The process of creating, retrieving, and editing tasks reflects the cyclic BIM workflow of exchanging data, adjusting and detailing specialist models and updating the coordination model. This process is the same throughout every project, accompanying all those involved.
Therefore, you and your planning partners need tools that make task management easy and comfortable. For this purpose, you can retrieve, create, and edit tasks by using the BIMPLUS web portal and the Task Board, which is integrated in Allplan.
Adding further information to tasks
One of the most important features of handling projects by means of Bimplus is the option to attach comments or other information, such as file attachments or hyperlinks, to tasks. Thus, all those involved in the project can communicate and exchange information directly through the building model. As a result, any additions or changes are always up to date and available to all project participants at any time.
Placing spots in the model
When editing tasks by using the BIMPLUS web portal, you can place spots directly in the model. Spots mark particular points in the model, that is specific places that require attention. You can retrieve spots in BIM Explorer and directly in Allplan.
Saving perspective views for tasks
A perspective view of the model will be saved for each task. As soon as you select a task, the program automatically displays the perspective view that is saved for this task.
Importing and exporting tasks
The BIM Collaboration Format BCF is the data format defined by buildingSMART for exchanging information between project participants when you handle projects based on the BIM method. Regardless of the software products used, this standard format guarantees a smooth and loss-free data exchange.
Consequently, you can import and export BCF files of the tasks created for the Bimplus projects by using both the BIMPLUS web portal and Allplan.
Exporting the task list as an Excel table
It is often difficult to keep track of tasks. This is particularly true when you have a complex task list. Therefore, you can export the complete task list of a Bimplus project in Excel format.
