Session Overview

As multi-disciplined infrastructure projects continue to increase in size and complexity, involving various designers from different backgrounds, there is a need for a streamlined process to produce a consistent delivery. Our challenge at SMEC was to produce a scalable non-authoring solution (within the secondary Common Data Environment [CDE]) that was undisruptive and efficient. Our answer is The Federation Project Workflow. This presentation describes The Federation Project Workflow, with a breakdown of its components, how it fits into the bigger picture and the outlay of the benefits.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Introduction to the Federation Project Workflow

  • Work in Progress (Secondary CDE) zones

  • Primary CDEs for medium and large-scale projects

  • Outcome, benefits and lessons learnt from the Federation Project Workflow
