Schedules and Quantities

BIM for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Curriculum

Learning Objectives

After completing this lesson, students will be able to:

  • Explore the application of schedule configuration rules to create schedules to meet various audiences and information needs.
  • Understand how to use the completed schedule to edit the model through BIM’s bidirectional information flow.
  • Appreciate the value of adding custom information to model elements, thus making our model “smarter,” in ways that can enable schedules to host and be the basis for useful engineering calculations.   
  • Explore various modes of exporting the schedules to be shared and used by other team members.
