3 Reasons to Fire Yourself. 11 Foods to Boost your Metabolism. 9 Steps to a New You. Lists are everywhere and we like them. They are easy to consume when there is so much information to sort through. In the spirit of “lists,” we have highlighted 10 key features that will help you understand how Assemble delivers the model information you need, quickly and easily.
1. Rapid data extraction for quick model takeoffs.
Publish your models in minutes to get a complete quantity takeoff. Have insight into every model parameter, whether custom, shared or project-based.
2. Variance reporting to manage change.
With each new model published to Assemble, run a variance report to pinpoint adds and deducts in the model in seconds. Variance reports track all model objects and can report back cost changes and any other critical parameter in your project.
3. Conceptual estimating to track design iterations.
Based on your unit cost database, Automated Estimating in Assemble supports early budgeting while the project is still in the design phases. Combined with variance reporting, your conceptual estimate can track project trends as quickly as you can publish out a new model.
4. Filtering and grouping to narrow in on systems.
Fast track projects require different levels of analysis at various stages, which means you need to break down systems and assemblies for your estimates. Easy filtering and grouping of model objects and estimates organizes the model as you need it so you only work with inventories necessary at a particular stage.
5. Color coding for organizing inventories.
Whether you use color to manage activity breakdowns, estimates or schedules, Assemble allows you to see the color in the model view, the grid view or your Excel export to communicate the information to the team members that need it.
6. Level of Development tracking for team coordination.
Use Level of Development tracking to coordinate model development with the design team. Communication and coordination improves significantly when all team members understand the expectations for how model elements should be used at project milestones.
7. Upload unique work breakdown structures.
Use an Excel spreadsheet to upload your unique work breakdown structure. Uniformat, CSI and Omniclass are all supported. Using your own Assembly Code scheme automates your conceptual estimate and allows you to organize the model for your workflow.
8. Sync data back to the model.
Whether you are modifying type names, adding descriptive data to the objects, such as manufacturer names or comments for team members, Sync the information back to the Revit model to reduce redundancy and document change.
9. Create and share views.
Communication and collaboration is improved and simplified when the project team is sharing the same information. Use views to organize information in the way you and your team need to see it.
10. Export to Excel or Navisworks.
Prepare your information and share with the team. Navisworks search sets support model change management by creating unique search set folders. Use Excel spreadsheet exports to format data for downstream detailed estimates and inventories.
