BIM Model Dashboard and Control Center

CONCEPT DESCRIPTION [explain idea here]:
Create a easy to understand dashboard of the health of a Revit model, integrated into an app that will alert the team when certain thresholds are hit. The app would also give BIM Managers the ability to easily assign the task of addressing it to someone on the project team.

PROCESS [best guess at approach & steps]:
- Use various Revit addins and Dynamo to pull Model adn user data, push to a SQL server
- Create a visualization of the data that would work within an app but as well as on display where the team is working
- Determine what key performance indicators (KPIs) should be flagged for notifications: ie. too many warnings, slow open and sync times, users on multiple Revit update versions
- Create an app that displays the model stats, has push notifications for KPIs, and emails team memebers upon task assignment from BIM manager

RESOURCES [tools, skills, or expertise required]:
- Revit
- Dynamo
- PowerBI/Tableau
- data migration and visualization
- knowledge of what hurts/helps Revit model performance
- Experience working on/leading a BIM project team
- App development/Microsoft Powerapps and Flows

DELIVERABLES / PROOF OF CONCEPT [what the end product looks like]:
- An App showing data from a BIM Model
- Push notifications about Key Performance Indicators
- quickly responding to the notification sends an email to the assigned member of the project team

GOALS [of both project & hackathon experience]:
- develop a working concept
- determine a set of KPIs that indicate a "healthy" Revit model
- create a system that makes it easy and fast for BIM managers to process and make decisions in their model data

    Love it Jess!

    They just explored this on BIM Thoughts last week.

    Thanks Ryan.

    I'd seen the video before, but I hadn't seen BIM thoughts post yet.

    It seems that tracking Revit data is something that is on a lot of people's minds lately. But I'm curious if we can't find a way to automate the analysis as well as the collection, making it easier for people who don't have the time or aren't excited about data to make decisions and act on them faster.
