Before you can effectively manage a workshare-enabled project and its central model, you need to know the rules. More importantly, you need to know when it's OK to break the rules. Learn what the "rules" of worksharing are and when and how to break them.
- [Instructor] As I said at the start of the course,…I'm assuming that you're watching this course…because you have some role that involves…the management or oversight of a workshare-enabled project,…so perhaps you're the BIM manager,…perhaps you're the person in charge,…the project data coordinator person on a project team…who's in charge of the central model.…Whatever your role happens to be…and whatever your interest in…managing worksharing happens to be,…it's helpful to manage something…if you kinda know what the rules are.…So, why don't we start with…what are some of the basic rules of worksharing…that all of the users should kind of…have internalized and be following,…and then more importantly…we'll talk about when and how to break those rules…when it's appropriate.…
Because again, if you're the one managing it,…then there will be times when you'll need to do that.…So, let's start with what are the rules.…Well, rule number one,…hopefully everyone knows is never work in the central model.…This is absolutely critical,…
Paul F. Aubin teaches you the skills you need to create your central model, configure worksharing settings, and perform ongoing maintenance as the project progresses. Learn how to move a central file, update links, upgrade projects, open local copies in detached mode, and archive the project when it's done. Plus, find out how to monitor sharing and user activity. This course covers all the skills you need to manage worksharing projects from start to finish.
