Pros: This software allows us to build/design our systems and then collaborate with the other trades to see if there are any discrepancies within our design well before anything is physically made and any time or money has been wasted on physical construction.

Cons: When the file sizes begin to become quite large a strong computer with a strong video card is required which can add up in costs.

Overall: Virtual multi-trade collaboration which helps eliminate physical construction deficiencies.

Pros: I like having the tool mobile for easy on the go documentation. I like that it is adaptable to the needs of the project. It is great being able to show the history of the items to tell the story of the issue very well.

Cons: There are a few customization that my team wishes we could have.
- if there was a way to create different issue numbers based off the issue type so that it doesn't look to our owner that we have 5000 punch items when most of those are QC in progress items or safety checks
- a way to customize the look of the dashboard showing not just unresolved issues, but showing a chart of open/work complete/not approved or any combination thereof.

Pros: I like the Navisworks 360 intergration. I also like the desktop app, get rid of the web based use since it seems like it never works

Cons: I dislike how i sometimes have to refresh twice in navis to get the glue update. I also dislike that a merged model has to be renamed every time its saved. The user navigation is cumbersome and sometimes hard to manage models

Overall: live models

It has been really helpful.

Cons: Cannot easily add a checklist to an issue, when you can add an issue to a checklist, it should work both ways to make easy to use. Not currently Anroid compatible plus not Iphone compatible

Overall: Alows for quick easy production of checklists and a good data base for collation of issues

Pros: This software helps us building projects. Because it is cloud based, it is easy accessible for office workers and peaple on site. Because of this you can get more benefit out of the BIM proces. It is a lot easier to share files and models and everyone can make comment on it. The thing I like is the accessibility of the information from every device you are able to use.

Cons: Although it is possible to use this software on the ipad of iphone, it is not possible to make sections on these devices. That is a big miss because people on site are mostly in posession of ipads and need the extra information from the sections. It would be perfect if this function is availeble on other devices than a desktop pc.

Overall: Easy access to diferent types of file extentions. Because it is easy to use I can also invite more people from the office and from the building site.

Excellent System.

Pros: Ease of application to Site System, especially regarding recording site defects. Also easy to record and administer/correct site defects. Also record corrected workmanship and record further defects and inform sub-contractors of current defective work.

Cons: Required that different areas of the site are given identification in addition to the working drawings.
Down loading by Sub-contactors occasionally difficult and correct areas not identified.

Overall: Record of progress with correcting defective work and ease of informing Sub-contractors of work required and record of progress.

Cons: Really big models or complex models rendering is jumpy on new iPads. Though not a fault of the software it is difficult to get the various field crew of the subs to participate in updating the as built's is the model progresses and the building progresses .

Pros: Simplicity, the use of this software was on one project and the administrator is our general contractor.

Cons: Having to remember another password. Not being an everyday user i have found it to be a bit of a learning curve on manipulating the model at times but the functions were ot hard to adapt to as i have found with other programs such as Revit,

Overall: i have very little dealings with the software other than reviewing what contractors upload onto the site.

I use it for coordination between different disciplines and for the visual aspect of our building.

Cons: -Not very user friendly. Requires some training prior to use.
-Recall problems logging in, from the construction site and spending time downloading documents before being able to use Bim360.
-And was not able to use Bim360 on my computer, appeared to only be accessible from the tablet.

Overall: No paper trail

Pros: It allows management to be more active on site while achieving the administration tasks. It efficiently monitors the service verification of plant & equipment on site. Issues can be raised immediately with photographs & maps to clearly outline the problems for assigned SC's. The real time data allows to track progress and achieve targets.

Cons: There is limited storage space & battery life on the ipads. It takes a long time for the sync process to complete. Some information may not sync correctly during transistion from internal wifi hotspot to external mobile phone hotspot. If there barcodes on plant / defect areas are damaged the scanner will not detect the barcode to obtain the information. User error can lead to blurred images or incorrectly use of the different tasks / checklist / equipment. If you create a checklist first without being linked to a specific task or item equipment, this checklist cannot be later linked to that correct task or equipment.

Overall: It allows me to be more active on the construction site to monitor and manage safety of all workers, while completing administration tasks effectively. It allows me to track the service records of plant on site and materials safety data sheets. It helps me to report information and access historical data quickly.

Rich feature set & collaborative functionality makes this an excellent construction management tool.

Pros: Gets owner, designer, construction team and subcontractors to share information and solve problems together quickly. Drawings are available and can be marked up and hyperlinked for quick access in the field. Daily site photos and issues can be tracked to closure with everyone "in the loop". All team members can see what is happening quickly using automatically generated daily and weekly reports.

Cons: Initial Location and equipment setup can take some time and requires some careful planning to make the program work its best. Ongoing drawing version maintenance requires a dedicated on-site administrator. Training of personnel must be done before day to day activities become overwealming or it will not be used effectively.

Overall: I use it on all my job sites. It is a required tool for all construction projects in our division. I it allows me to quickly document field activities and issues as they come up and then have them automatically sent, along with photos and drawings, to the subcontractor who is responsible. This saves a tremendous amount of time each day and assures that the issue will not fall through the cracks.
Having current documents in the field is a great time saver and often resolves questions without having to go back to the office to research a solution.

Used as a punch-list management tool on the construction of an MLB Ballpark.

Pros: I liked how issues were assigned to specific people and groups. I also like how issues could be provided with specific locations and drawing snips and pics so there wasn't much wasted time figuring out where/what the issue is that needed to be fixed

Cons: It bogged down email there were times that issues would get uploaded and then be deleted off and then reappear. Obviously you could change settings and not get emails, but I would miss issues and would not respond as quickly when I turned the notifications off.

Overall: We were able to pre-punch, punch, and resolve all issues on a massive project in a two month time span. I felt like all issues were identified, corrected, and signed off I a timely manner by the correct person.

This is a great tool for the field in these days of paperless construction.

Pros: The best part is the incrementation in integration for all disciplines and roles. It allows to avoid rework on IFC translations and operations since it provides a real multi disciplinary and integrated collaboration platform through BIM 360 Team an Collaboration for Revit, among many other features.

Cons: It is realy important to unify the versions hosted in BIM 360 Team (C4R and the design process) with BIM 360 Docs (the documentation and submision process) by including in Revit an integrator button, just like the existing one for BIM 360 Glue .

Overall: Mainly, cost, time and rework reductions.

Pros: Flexibility to use wherever you are and the ability to share with others is a great benefit as it provides accessibility to others without the need to purchase software which they may not need or use every day.

Cons: 1. BIM360 team does not have measure tool in 3D view.
2. Sheet views have text issues and also the pipework shown also in sheet view is blurry.
3. We have been useing glue but since autodesk have changed structure as to now being costed per used in lieu of previous project structure makes it inefficient as we have had priced at 10K for 2-20 users. Would like to use glue moving forward but see price increase is due to clash detection now being added to the cloud based glue features. We do our clash detection using navis manage and therefore do not need the clash detect within glue.

Pros: BIM Glue:
--Excellent tool for visualizing complex building systems (mechanical, plumbing, structure) in 3D model space.

360Field:
--Ease of photo documentation for field quality issues, testing timeframes, etc.

Cons: BIM Glue:
--Inability to manipulate subcontractor models from the General Contractor role. (e.g. minor layout tweaks in plan or elevation view require the subcontractor to make the revision. Sometimes smaller subcontractor companies do not have the capacity to keep making minor revisions or they are just furnishing the material only.)

360Field:
--Lacks an iPhone (mobile phone) application which would definitely promote use of photo documentation and issue updating for tradesmen (superintendents, general foreman, carpenters, people who do not carry an iPad for their daily routines, etc.).
--At the end of a 2013 project, the contract required progress photos to be furnished to the Owner. When inquiring with Autodesk, pulling all photos from the project required a fee to be paid.
--Photos module should have a filter function (similar to Issues module) in addition to the existing sorting function and tag search. Not all people add tags to the photos. If the photos retain the issue ID or location information, it helps to narrow down searches for relevant areas/rooms in a project.

Easy to use when i select the proper fields i need to filter.

Pros: Using BIM 360 makes our job easy when looking up panel specific IDs/Issues created previous day and numerous other tasks at hand.

Cons: Only had a few cons but none are really notable to mention. I have no idea how some of our Issues created previous day either had all the same job numbers or had a miss matched numbers added one day. I believe it was from our onsite user who details the info for us or something with the software went haywire.

Pros: Once it is set up , it gives access to all of the important paper work including the submittals. It helps make sure that everyone is working off the same plans and specs. On the IPad it is easy to use.

Cons: It can be difficult to set up projects at times and it needs a way to notify people of tasks that they need to complete with out having to schedule a report to send to the team weekly. A lot of the complaints for the team is they get to many emails that do not pertain to them.

Overall: Helps us track our check lists and helps the team to have all of the same info, as long as it gets uploaded.

Pros: Theory of being to exchange information between different services makes a lot of sense. Good graphics.

Pros: Good way of tracking deficiencies and other issues. Having pictures were very helpful. Back and forth documented communications that any person that had access could review was very helpful. My subtrades could respond in this system as well. I liked the history tab so you could see where it had been when you got an issue that was already overdue for completion.

Cons: The Gen Contractor did not always review in a timely manner. I would make a comment and not get any action or response from the GC for several weeks. This is not acceptable on a fast track project. Is better notification required. Too many e-mail notifications for general - there is an e-mail notification sent out for every step you seem to fill in or change.

Overall: Excellent tracking of Deficiency issues.

Pros: Upload models from various team members and subs. Saves installing NW Freedom on client machines. Simple UI, easy to navigate. It's the online version of Navisworks.

Cons: Poor integration with BIM 360 Field, equipment sets do not work with any of the reporting features. As an advanced Navisworks user, I lose much time as there are no quick keys for navigation. I have to do a lot of clicking for simple tasks. The properties window does not stay permanently open and the properties "tabs" are much different than Navisworks. Searching through properties is tedious. Cannot change the selection colour. If Revit based Navisworks model is over 70mb, the iPad App crashes on load. Saved viewpoints carry over to the iPad but not the online version. I personally feel Glue is a good tool but needs a lot of work to make it feel like an extension or replacement of NW Freedom.

Pros: I love the convenience as a safety manager to attach photos as I document the safety leading indicators. BIM 360 Field has potential to revolutionize the field of construction safety.

Cons: BIM 360 Field does not yet allow me to include every subcontractor on one issues. Currently, I have to create a new issue for each subcontractor involved. This is very time consuming and unnecessary in my opinion. Many times, there are 3 or 4 subs involved with the same issue. It would be nice to add those subs to the one issue and be done with it.

Pros: The ease of collating records on completion of a project has been huge as has day to day monitoring of checks and issues. Supporting evidence attached immediately to a checklist has also been of great benefit reducing the risk of losing information. The availability of analyzing issues has improved the approach to recording of such information and encouraged the Health & Safety triangle approach to recording minor issues and the hope of decreasing the occurrence of more major Non-Conformances.

Cons: An ability to sign off particular queries within a checklist would be a great improvement allowing the monitoring of HOLD points within works which can only be done by splitting Checklists up under the current system.
Digital signatures through iPads are not accurate and become less so when pads are holding a lot of data. We cannot issue iPads to everyone within a project and thus cannot sign off through individual log-ins but a system to sign in as a signatory and have that recognized within the checklist history would be of great benefit.
Functionality on browsers for the desktop access varies and does not allow certain actions on certain browsers. Our client does not have the freedom to download browsers and are locked out by the network administration so a more uniform performance on these platforms would be beneficial.

Overall: Collation of data at project completion was the major benefit of the FIELD software which was backed up by the ability to attach evidence at checklist creation.

Cons: It would be so great if the glue which the BIM model been using could interlink to others like Docs, 360 fields. so each tool's function could share the tarlored / inputted data information in one virtual space.

Pros: The massive number of photos it can manage and the variety of ways we can tag and sort them. The ability to collaborate with our contractor.

Cons: Its functionality is clunky, and there isn't design parity between the web and iOS version, which I'm constantly switching back and forth between. It's super frustrating to go back into the photos to mark them up, and I can't scroll through them. The time it takes to sync can be frustrating.

Overall: Easy way to do punchlist and site observation reports.

Pros: Ease to use
Lots of functions such as measuring tools, taking multiple sections, coordinating documentation between consultants.
Can easily turn on and off individual models

Cons: Often has glitches and closes itself which is frustrating and time consuming. It can take a while to load files but this could be a function of the very large models we're using.
once the errors are fixed to stop the program closing itself there are no more cons. It's a very useful, user friendly program

Overall: Easy viewer for consultants and great for coordination and quickly identifying any design issues

Pros: BIM 360 offers Real time file updates, which means when you go through BIM 360 you always have the latest, most up to date coordination file.

Cons: Extremely cumbersome and slow unless you have the latest and greatest computing and internet connection speed. Usually downloaded a copy to work from to make it less cumbersome

BIM 360 field is a great way to daily communicate the status of issues on a construction project.

Pros: The ability to automate reports to trade partners, owners, and internal project team. This is a huge help in efficiency and is one less thing to do on a daily basis. The ability to take photos and have them categorized by dates and saved for reference is great!

Cons: The slow detail of adding items. It would be helpful to turn off or on drop down on an issue, so that you could only see 3-6 fields to fill in. This would allow creating issues to be done more efficiently without having to scroll down on the issue form to get to a fill in field. (example: being able to shut off the "location detail" as we didn't use that for description)

Overall: I was able to run a construction project smoothly.

Very easy to learn, easy to teach, and easy to use.

Pros: PINS PINS PINS! QA/QC goes so fast when you pin items, print out the pin sheet, and place it in a room. The ability to just continue to mark pins once one is created is awesome!

Cons: Checklists are not as easy to work with that just creating a single item. Report filters are also extremely long to fill out. I have no clue how you could make this better, and if that is all I don't like to deal with then you have a good program!

Overall: Easier day at work, less paperwork to hand out to subcontractors.

Versatile, streamline, and condensed.

Pros: I like the fact we can upload the updates to tablets and use the components in the field. On a Government High Security project it makes our day to day operations much easier.

Cons: It is painfully slow to upload documents. Server needs to be quicker. It is very time consuming to sit and wait for drawings to populate. Our job has over 1200 sheets and the program struggles to upload them quickly.

I have used the program on several jobs and have found it intuitive to use.

Pros: Great interface and very user-friendly, and the accessibility from most mobile devices is very convenient.

Cons: 360-DOCs needs functionality for Microsoft Office 365, so not every document has to be PDF'd

The folder structures should be more malleable for administrators. We need to be able to download complete projects for archiving, and it would be great if we could drag-and-drop entire folder structures (with files inside) for large uploads. BOX.com is highly competitive in this aspect. We need an all-in-one cloud-based project information solution. Moving entire folders with sub-folders is badly needed as well.
It would also be nice to see a syncing solution like BOX-Drive and BOX-Sync.

If BIM 360 DOCs included the extra functionality that BOX has, it would be our all-in-one common-data-environment.

Overall: Increased transparency amongst designers and with the entire project team. Not everyone on the project has the software needed to view the models, but with BIM 360 they now can.

Somewhat useful, but the program could use some better functions.

Pros: How easily I am able to add, merge, and store models. Also, it is pretty easy to add members to a model along with understanding what the different membership levels allow.

Cons: The cutting planes can be really far from the navigation screen which makes it hard & confusing to use. It would useful to be able to alter the nearness & farness of the culling plane such as in Navisworks Manage. I understand that creating too large of an "area" to be viewed/understood by the program bogs down the model, which is trying to be avoided with GLUE in general. However, the near culling plane is sometimes just not cutting it (haha, I hope you enjoyed my pun). Also, people using GLUE specifically cannot create section planes or viewpoints in the iPad model, which makes the model hard for those using it out in the field that wish to save viewpoints or cut into a section of the building. Also in GLUE, it is nice to be able to lock measurements in the x, y, or z axis, but there is no shortcut to exit this mode and to go back to measuring in a 3-dimensional direction. The only way I have found it possible to get out of the dimension lock is by exiting the model & re-entering. GLUE is a great software honestly, but were pushing for the model to be a lot more user friendly & give trade engineers confidence to turn to the model to answer coordination questions easily. If the program becomes to hard to use or makes the model seem unreliable, then we have an issue. So far, a lot of people love the program, but going back and forth between Navisworks and GLUE, I notice some features in Navisworks Manage that the team would love to use.

Overall: Being able to load and download different types of modeling content file types such as .dwg, .ifc, .nwd, and even .rvt. Merging models was extremely straight forward and useful as well.

Pros: Each product does at least one thing very well and is fully connected on the web. 360 Glue for example, enables BIM managers to spend more time evaluating clashes and less time compiling individual model files together.

Cons: Lack of interoperability between external software and other 360 products. For example, Docs & Field lack of Library interoperability.

Overall: It makes my workflow as a BIM manager more efficient and the Project Management tasks more efficient for our construction teams.

Pros: Amazing sorting features, great technical back end information, easy to repurpose / re use. Photo documentation is great, so is ability to use barcoding.

Cons: It's not exactly streamlined or intuitive. It can be overwhelming for early users which makes it difficult to keep them motivated using it. Recommend to streamline ability to put issues on map / overall reduce clicks / taps without sacrificing the great data collection on back end.

The product works as advertised.

Pros: File storage for models and ensuring that the files are up to date is well organized and easy to keep track of. Collaboration on the coordination front is great as well because it ensures everyone's working off of the most up to date files.

Cons: Clash detection is a step back from Navisworks clash detection. Need to be able to identify clashes better and organize clashes from those that're important and those that're not.
