The challenge, however, is to stretch – not break – your comfort level. A good first step is to take time to understand what’s available. Different people have different processes: some may read the user manual; others may click an icon and wait to see what happens; others want to be walked through the system by an expert. Most take many different routes to discovery. Whatever your path, the important thing is the curiosity and the willingness to learn and discover new functionality and flexibility.
By digging deeper into building information modeling processes using Revit, for example, you can discover that you have additional functionality you’re not using, from communications to inventory to design changes. The more you can effectively utilize the features of a platform, the fewer problems you’ll face regarding interoperability and the more savings you’ll realize in time and money.
