The Status Board lets you track your BIM objects statuses. The board consists of the following:
- Milestones in columns in order from left to right.
- Cards with groups of objects with a status given by the column.
- Additional group and search options.
- Overall statistics.
We will go over each of these more in detail below. The simplest use of the board you can get is to click on a card, drag and drop it to progress or move it to the correct status and if you would like you can go deep-dive into the object group by clicking on “Edit Data”.
You will then enter the Data & 3D grid view with those exact objects from the group. If you would like you can also specify what Bookmark you would like to use, this will help you get the exact information you need or you want to add to those objects.
Before we go into detail you can see an example in use here where we want to approve the doors of the first floor.
By clicking on the Edit data button, we can take a deep dive into the 164 Doors that are Ready for approval. In the Data & 3D view we can quickly get an overview of what needs to be done to approve these doors. Notice how some of the doors seems to have incorrect floor association?
Statuses & milestones
Each status has its own column in the board. These are ordered from left to right and the first column will always be “No status” for all objects that does not have a particular status. In other words, all new objects will always be in this column before they get their status.
A single card is represented by the data the group consists of to the left and the number of objects fitting those data values (and the appropriate status) to the right. From the example below we have the Model “Arkitekt”, Category “Doors” and the Global Level “6. Etasje” selected. If you drag the card you can move that group of objects into a new column to change status.
Grouping and search
By default, all objects will be grouped into their originating model and category before they are divided into their corresponding status column.
If you would like to be more granular or specific about the group of objects you want to work with, you can breakdown the group data on any parameter available in your project. You can also search for a parameter you want to group by. After you have selected your parameter of choice the board will be reloaded, and you can work with new groups of objects and values for the selected parameter is presented at the bottom left of the cards. If the object group has no values for a given parameter, it will be left blank in that card.
Also available is a general search bar for the whole board. This search will filter the groups or cards based on the information available in the board including the breakdown parameter.
Interaxo BIM Data will recall both your breakdown parameter to next time if you leave the board as well as any active searches for specific values. If you want to see everything just remove the filter or the grouping.
In the board you can also see some statistics.
Numbers and percentages are available for
- Each Card – group of objects
- Each Column – summarized for that Status/Milestone
- Total number of objects in the whole grid and when filtering
Deep dive into a group
If you are unsure what work remains or if something is indeed ready for approval like in the example below you can select the card you want to take a closer look at. You will then be able to “Edit data” and select from the available bookmarks for that Model & Category. We recommend that you select a bookmark and set these up so that it is easier to have the relevant information available when you select take a closer look at a group.
