A strength of Bentley products has always been their configurability. But with great strength comes great responsibility – and occasionally a whole lot of confusion as well. Many of us understand the principles of application, site, project and user configurations with MicroStation, but do you really know how these apply to the Building products, the DataGroup system, and how best to integrate these within your existing Workspace?
If you’re using Bentley Architecture or Structural Modeler, this session will explain everything you need to know about configuring these products for use in a real office environment. From the basic principles of the supplied datasets and corporate configuration needs, through to organising the DataGroup system files to allow for project-specific requirements, Nigel Davies of Evolve Consultancy and EatyourCAD.com will help you look at effective and efficient Workspace management

This presentation links to the "Adopting BIM: Rolling Your Sleeves Up and Getting It Done" class, opening up questions and comments you have regarding implementing a BIM strategy.
It is a unique opportunity to discuss them with your peers and experts in the BIM arena. You will hear firsthand the difficulties others face and how you can best avoid the hurdles they have experienced.
Not only will you get an insight into the issues within your industry, you will also get to hear about those faced by your partners, consultants, and clients, helping you to understand the best ways in which to work with them in a BIM environment.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is being widely adopted. Many companies will be highlighting their successes at this year's AU. But if you have not started down the BIM route, where do you start?
As a CAD manager, it is probably you who will be expected to get your company BIM-ing.
Through Nigel's first-hand experience of implementing BIM successfully in architectural and engineering practices, you will learn all the necessary tips and tricks to set you confidently on your way.
Don't expect a class that discusses the benefits of BIM—this is a practical session for anyone who needs to implement a BIM solution. How do you choose the right software? How do you start your first project? What about the integration of existing CAD files, standards, and processes? And most importantly, how do you guarantee that your roll-out will be a success?
Have you ever wondered how much other CAD managers were paid, or how many users they support, or how many CAD packages their companies use? Do you ever wish you could understand future trends in the CAD management market to plan your career?
You’ll find these answers and more in this online class. Co-presenters Robert Green and Nigel Davies will share the results of their CAD manager surveys for the U.S. and Europe and draw conclusions based on their industry experience.
Topics covered will include: salary data, support loads and software usage, 3D implementation rates, training budgets, standards management, production pressure, and the most common CAD management problems experienced by others.
If you want to know where the CAD management market is headed and get some solid advice on how to plan your career accordingly for it, this class is for you.
