Abstract:Engineering, installing and all other activities that are involved in projects of Company X take a lot of time. For example, engineering systems costs a lot of time. The systems are engineered by engineers of Company X. The engineering process is a difficult task, as the engineers of Company X have to take many variables into account. For example, in the design phase, they must consider other installations. The engineers should also consider the type of building and system in the design phase. The designs of the systems are engineered in AutoCAD and Revit. In AutoCAD, the systems are engineered in 2D. For a few years, Company X has started using Revit to engineer systems in 3D. Company X is in doubt for which projects it would be necessary to use which drawing technology. Both drawing programs have their advantages and disadvantages. At the moment, the engineers of Company X have to engineer more and more projects in Revit. However, engineering 3D-models in Revit takes more time than engineering 2D-models in AutoCAD. On the other hand, engineering 3D-models in Revit should cause that mechanics encounter fewer problems when installing the system. At the moment, Company X has not a clear idea how much time it costs to engineer 3D-models in Revit instead of engineering 2D-models in AutoCAD and how much time is saved in the installing process because of engineering 3D-models in Revit. That is why Company X wants to know when it should use which drawing technology.
