New York, NY, March 3, 2020 – Global BIM Management Consulting Firm Microdesk, a leading provider of business and technology services for the design and construction industry, has released ModelStream® 2.0, an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) application that provides bi-directional synchronization of assets and location data between Autodesk® Revit and IBM® Maximo®.
The application alleviates the time and personnel resources needed to combine assets from IBM® Maximo® with the attributes and location data available in Revit, a process that would normally take hours of painstaking data input. With ModelStream® 2.0 users can create a comprehensive digital twins before, during and after construction. The updated version brings with it a host of enhanced features like a new model administration module, multiple options for viewing models online and behind a firewall, and data export tools. Additionally, users can now utilize an asset and component data filter that simplifies viewing, tagging, mapping and filtering.
ModelStream® 2.0 also introduces Ask Alex™, built with Watson an AI-driven search functionality that allows users to employ a conversational tone when querying ModelStream®, pulling results from Revit and Maximo simultaneously. The AI understands assets, routes, locations, specifications and even 2D/3D model data, a first for the AECO industry. Most importantly, Ask Alex™ provides targeted search results rather than an overwhelming number of potential matches to speed lookup times and improve the overall user experience.
“Tools like ModelStream® are essential to AECO firm success,” said Michael DeLacey, Microdesk principal and CEO. “Maximizing facility operations by bringing together key data points from seemingly disparate sources helps owners create more sustainable, intelligent business practices. ModelStream® will evolve to not only suit our client needs, but also to address major challenges facing our industry like globalization and urbanization”
