Introducing BIM 360 Assets: Enhanced Assets and Equipment Tracking

As construction projects grow in complexity, the managing and tracking of any onsite assets including system components, moveable equipment, building materials or even rooms or areas in the project, is critical to ensuring successful project delivery.

The new BIM 360 Asset module delivers a user-friendly and centralized place to track and manage the lifecycle of project assets from design through handover. These capabilities give teams the ability to reduce the time it takes to access asset data in the field, perform commissioning & resolve defects, and reduce the time to operations, all while minimizing risk.

In this webinar, you will learn more about:

  • The benefits of asset lifecycle tracking for both the contractor and owner
  • How to connect asset and equipment tracking to existing field management workflows
  • How to set up and customize the BIM 360 Asset module

 


 

Too Long? Didn't Watch?

Here's a summary of the webinar. 

 

Whether you're a contractor or an owner, the tracking, installation, and commissioning of construction assets is vital for successful project delivery. 

 

Traditionally, assets have been managed in spreadsheets or paper based documents which results in silos of disconnected data.

The negative consequences of such disconnected data are:

  • Increased schedule delays
  • Cost overruns
  • Increased risk and potential liability
  • Poor client relationships

 

BIM 360 Assets helps owners and contractors manage critical construction assets throughout the entire project lifecycle.

 

 

Here's a look at the key features of BIM 360 Assets and how it creates a single source of truth for your construction assets, every step of the way. 

 

 

Whether you're entering asset information from the field, uploading an excel template, or even integrating asset info with Assemble, the ability to manage all of your project assets has never been easier.

Here's how BIM 360 Assets will make your project better. 

 

 

How Austin Commercial Used BIM 360 Assets to Improve Project Performance


To get more insight from Austin Commercial, watch the webinar with their full review.


Previous Challenges:

  • They did not have a standardized tool for offset tracking and commissioning

  • Field members had freedom to customize their workflows

  • Pen and paper checklists would get lost or misplaced

 

Goals:

  • Streamline the process 

  • Provide a single source of reliable data for key stakeholders 

  • Ultimately improve turnover for owner

 

Value of Asset Tracking Tool:

  • Single source of truth for all asset tracking

  • Streamlined processes

  • Clear insights for owner

 

Best Practices Learned:

  • Identify a ‘champion’ or a group of champions to take the lead on equipment tracking

  • Review your specs and know what equipment is required to track

  • Talk to subcontractors and brainstorm how to bring them into your tracking system
