Scheduling Visualization Methodology in Autodesk Revit 2018








One of the key management targets in construction is developing an adequate roadmap or schedule of works at the designed project, the roadmap visualization of which is done in programs that use BIM-design technologies. The analysis has demonstrated that even though it is possible to make up the optimal scheduling of all works based on all estimation criteria and with all possible limitations taken into account, spatial collisions are a clear possibility in the future stepwise commissioning of individual facilities in a cluster. For example, full readiness of a project may not align with its commissioning deadline because some sections of the access road to this project may fall within the construction site of another project under construction, so the driveway is blocked. In order to reveal such possible organizational-technological collisions, it is necessary to develop a general construction master plan (CMP) for the entire site, and design progressive rendering of the integrated development roadmap. The scheduling visualization methodology rendered in Autodesk Revit 2018 comprises a sequence of the following steps: designing a master plan of construction works for the entire site, drafting a time scale by construction stages, assigning design elements to different stages, and choosing the right stage to visualize or render axonometric geometry of the construction site under review.
