Asta Powerproject BIM brings 4D planning within affordable reach by combining 3D planning and scheduling..

This new version of Asta Powerproject incorporates BIM features that enable 4D planning, drive greater collaboration, and deliver communication, time and efficiency benefits. It enables users to link project plans and 3D models in a single, cloud-connected application, and share information between applications using the IFC4 data format.

Asta Powerproject BIM extends the functionality of Asta Powerproject enabling you to create a flexible, 4D-enabled planning platform that uses the ELECO BIMCloud to share information.

With Asta Powerproject BIM you can:


  • Quickly create your project plan directly from your IFC4 model file by:
    • Dragging and dropping objects between the 3D view and tasks
    • Using structured templates with predefined searches to automatically link to the IFC model objects
  • Compare `planned’ and `actual’ schedule plans with full 3D visual impact
  • Create and play a time-line of your project linked to milestones and baselines to simulate subsections or whole projects
  • Manage large projects with the ability to save snapshot positions to enable quick navigation
  • Save images to standard graphical formats to use for reporting or site recording of project status
  • Use full property controls for visual impact and ability to hide and view objects
  • Manage your 4D planning at an affordable cost
  • Prepare tenders and manage progress monitoring in 3D
  • Import costs from estimating applications supporting the IFC4 file format

 

 

A comprehensive estimating tool for projects of any size or complexity

Bidcon BIM ensures that you can quickly identify the most cost-effective solutions and revise your estimations as required. The software allows you to take off the quantities you need from an IFC model and share the bill of quantities with Asta Powerproject BIM.

Bidcon BIM features:

  • IFC models linked to estimation
  • Powerful and comprehensive SQL library
  • User-defined templates and automated import
  • Built—in NRM library
  • Generate customisable reports and filter by resource group
  • Clearly compare supplier pricing

EcoDomus Enterprise includes all available EcoDomus software tools into a single unified platform well suited for organization-wide lifecycle facility data management deployment.

The software suite of products helps our enterprise customers address business process workflows through all of the stages in the facility lifecycle, as presented below

lifecycle

EcoDomus solution becomes a central facility repository, a “single source of truth” aggregator for all lifecycle facility data at the most detailed level. The software ensures that all the available customer databases are integrated to provide for the advanced analytics via “data mashup”:

integration

EcoDomus FM (“Facilities Management”) is a software application that provides for real-time integration of BIM with Building Automation Systems, like Siemens, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, or others, with CMMS/CAFM/IWMS software like IBM Maximo, ARCHIBUS, AssetWorks AiM, Accruent FAMIS, TMA Systems’ webTMA, Corrigo, or others, and GIS from ESRI (ArcGIS) and Google (Google Earth). EcoDomus FM can serve as a part of Central Facility Repository (CFR) helping owners keep data always up-to-date across the applications and databases. Please review some of the features listed below.

PORTFOLIO ASSETS VIEW | ONLINE 3D NAVIGATION | DOCUMENTATION | LASER SCANNING INTERFACE | BIM AND BAS | ADVANCED REPORTS

PORTFOLIO ASSETS VIEW
EcoDomus FM allows you to filter information by locations or disciplines, and build custom reports. Use GIS-like navigation to see your buildings or other assets on a map, and combine BIM and GIS functionalities for “data mashup”.

 

ONLINE 3D NAVIGATION
See your assets in 3D to track mechanical, electrical, plumbing systems and identify areas of concern, i.e. plumbing leaks. Review assets’ properties and open linked asset documentation such as product datasheets or photos.

 

DOCUMENTATION
Review product documentation, such as submittals, datasheets, warranty, specifications, etc. Documents are attached to assets, systems, locations, facilities, as specified by COBie rules.

 

LASER SCANNING INTERFACE
Review your spatial information both in BIM and Point Clouds received from Laser Scanning. Browser-based interface allows you to navigate remotely and see your facilities in photo-realistic view, and measure distances between any two points. Tag your assets within the Point Clouds.

 

BIM and BAS
EcoDomus integrates Building Automation Systems (BAS) with BIM to enable sensors’ data tracking within 3D. Quickly track HVAC systems’ performance by reviewing individual elements’ data points values.

 

ADVANCED REPORTS
Track your surface finish schedules, i.e. wall paint or ceiling tiles, and automatically calculate the total surface area to find out how much paint you need. See the fire ratings for your walls and doors, and quickly locate them on the floorplan.

EcoDomus PM (“Project Management”) is a versatile software solution dedicated to enabling the usage of Building Information Models (BIM) and Lean processes for managing facility data during new construction for BIM handover, renovation of existing buildings, or just collecting data to create accurate as-builts. EcoDomus PM helps reduce time and costs of collecting and validating design/construction/commissioning information

MOBILE DATA EDITING
Access BIM in the field on smartphones or iPads with EcoDomus Mobile: review and edit properties of BIM objects, add documents and photos, scan barcodes to find objects in 3D, create punch list / snags, view building systems and location properties.

COMMON DATA ENVIRONMENT
Manage your documents in EcoDomus Common Data Environment (CDE) – use metadata to define your files and workflows, check-in and check-out documents for editing, comply with PAS1192 requirements for CDE, integrate documents with COBie, use tags to filter documents.

DATA QUALITY CONTROL
BIM quality control and quality assurance are based on BIM guidelines and standards. If detailed guidelines are available then a quantitative review is possible, and automatic verification can be done through the EcoDomus PM software.

COBIE EDITING
The EcoDomus solution deals with the COBie data by providing both a simple browser-based web form interface and 3D interface. These two interfaces allow for the collection and validation of data and provide a means for verifying and editing the COBie information in a virtual building.

DOCUMENTATION
Review product documentation, such as submittals, datasheets, warranty, specifications, etc. Documents are attached to assets, systems, locations, facilities, as specified by COBie rules.
