Bimplus and Solibri BCF Live Connector enables ‘seamless’ data-based communication between the Nemetschek-owned solutions
In a move that demonstrates closer collaboration between Nemetschek-owned solutions, BIM software provider Allplan has announced a streamlined real-time issue management workflow between Solibri and Allplan via the cloud-based OpenBIM platform Bimplus.
The workflow is designed to provide an effective method for managing changes in projects and is said to enable a highly efficient OpenBIM workflow for everyone involved in building and infrastructure projects.
Rather than importing and exporting BCF files, the connection of Bimplus with the Solibri BCF Live Connector now enables the direct transfer of issues identified during consolidated model checking in Solibri to the issue workflow in the Bimplus platform. These issues can then be assessed and assigned for processing.
According to Allplan, the workflow is particularly effective for Allplan users as the Bimplus Issue Manager is also used within Allplan and therefore enables direct processing and correction of these defects immediately within the Allplan BIM authoring solution.
“We are delighted to see our customers once again benefit from greater co-operation around beneficial technology within the Nemetschek Group. Solibri has always represented two things to the market,” says Ville Kyytsönen, CEO of Solibri. “Firstly, we deliver quality data around design, build and manage. Good data is at the heart of every successful project and that is something we always deliver. OpenBIM is an important secondary consideration in all things that we do. Today we see yet another collaboration that is based upon customer value in how we all work together.”
Issues can be created in either Allplan or Bimplus, assigned to the relevant person in the team, visualized, annotated, assigned a deadline, and signed off, as well as easily tracked throughout the entire process.
With the Solibri BCF Live Connector, issues created in Solibri are also now transferred centrally in Bimplus, can be validated by the Project Manager or BIM Coordinator, and then assigned to the responsible team members, who receive the tasks in Allplan.
