ENGINEERING DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE (EDMS)
The volume, size and complexity of the files created in AEC organizations presents challenges around searching and finding documents – making it difficult to ensure correct versions are being used by all parties, including design organizations, construction, contractors, and clients. In addition, AEC organizations often are faced with challenges around security, retention, and workflow. ImageSite delivers a secure repository and integrates the leading AEC CAD formats (AutoCAD, MicroStation and Revit) with title block integration, automatic reference file detection, integrated viewing and markups.
Access to local files with an enterprise view of all files stored across multiple repositories
Flexible folder storage structures
Metadata search criteria
Flexible lifecycle and workflow processes
Document and folder level security models
Advanced transmittal creation and tracking
Real-time collaboration and markup capabilities
Changes required during later phases of the design process greatly impact project costs and schedules. As such, AECs need a rigorous engineering change management process to keep projects on track. ImageSite automates revisions to existing documents, and ImageSite’s document lifecycle and workflows can be configured as an Engineering Change Request (ECR) solution. Organizations can also classify revisions as “major” or “minor” and determine who can access and edit the documents at any point in the lifecycle for project management.
Easily setup your own engineering change request (ECR), or notification, or order process
Ensure ECR routing to appropriate users for review
Ensure ECR routing to appropriate decisions makers for approval
Advise internal, external and other parties through emails or internal notification
Virtually all AEC organizations use formal engineering transmittal procedures. In many cases, those procedures are paper based. Document transfer activities within these organizations can impact a project’s outcome – including contracts and budgets. As a result, organizations often require a complete audit trail of work being performed between all the associated parties. ImageSite Engineering Document Management Software performs transmittals in a closed loop process, that delivers confirmation of recipient and an integrated review and subsequent action process. The improved engineering work processes drive productivity throughout AEC organizations – saving them significant time and money, while reducing errors.
Quickly and easily find specific documents and associate them with a transmittal
Create transmittal letters with references to the associated documents
Transmit documents in a variety of ways, including email transmission or posting entire transmittals with email notification to recipient users
Set notifications for outstanding acknowledgements and approvals
All an authorized user needs to access an engineering drawing is a standard Web browser. In a maintenance situation, quick access to an engineering drawing is critical. Plus ImageSite’s speed in displaying even the most complex image is extremely fast. Since there is no client software to install or maintain, system expansion is simple to deploy. Also, almost everyone is familiar with a standard Web browser, so very little training is required to use ImageSite to access drawings.Ellen Madzima
