So you may be wondering why put phasing and design options together? Well, it's a good question, and let's answer it by saying first what these two tools have in common, how are they similar. So both tools have the ability to control what we see in the model; they can change the way the objects display in the model. Now, how they're different is in the way that they do this. Phasing is concerned with time, so it controls what we see in the model based on what point and time it gets added to your project. Design Options is concerned with schemes or variations. Think of it more like a fork in the road, so we might do scheme A, or we might to scheme B, we're considering both, and we can only see one or the other at any given time.
Can they be used together? Of course they can. It's possible to have a design option that occurs across multiple Phases, or it's possible that in a certain Phase we might consider two possibilities. So in the movies that follow we'll start up by looking at each tool independently and then we'll wrap up by looking at a few examples of using them together.
