Example images of the project dashboard

Click on the headers to see the image of that part of the dashboard. The images are screenshots from the actual dashboard.

Project Models

Number of models in project

The visuals of the project dashboard show the data of multiple models and this visual is to show how many model's data is used for this dashboard.

Number of unique levels across project

This number should be as low as it logically makes sense. IF the number is higher than expected it most likely means there are levels that use different spellings which could mean those names do not comply to the set naming standard.

Number of sheets

This visual is meant to be used as the start for drilling down to find in which file is which deliverable.

Number of BIM authors

This number is based upon the element parameters: CreatedBy and ModifiedBy

Imported DWG's

Imported DWG files can have a negative effect on the speed of Revit. Try to avoid importing DWG files into Revit. Linking DWG files has the same impact on speed. Consider putting this kind of information in a separate Revit file and linking this file.

Linked Revit Files

The number of linked Revit models is to be used as a quick check to see if this is within your expectations. In the drill down of this visual you will be able to see the details.

Model groups

Model groups, although very usefull, increase the file size of a Revit model and thus the performance, therefore if a model group is used more than 4 times it should be reviewed if this group could be turned into a Revit family.

Unused elements

Over the course of a project many changes are made to models which often leads to elements that were used before are not being used anymore. Unused elements means that the file size of the Revit model can be reduced and therefore the performance increased. This visual counts the number of family types that are marked by Revit as not being active.This means that the Revit Purge functionality will most likely find even more elements that are not being used. Currently elements from the Revit template file are not excluded from the count

Inplace families

Inplace families can have a negative impact on the Revit files size and therefore on performance. Review in the drill down if there are inplace families that should be evaluated and or changed into a regular family.

Unique worksets

There is no correct number for the number of worksets, but from experience, Revit models with higher number of worksets typically are prone to practices that are not recommended but also models with only two worksets often require analysis. The purpose of this visual is to quickly find models that require scrutiny which does not imply that these models are bad.

Quality project

Warnings across all project files

Revit warnings have a severity level assigned to them by DAQS.IO. The severity has been set based upon the estimated impact this warning has on the information model.

Classification codes code NOT filled in.

The percentage indicates how many elements still have to be provided with a Classification code. So the goal for this visual is to reach 0%.

Element information project

Number of Elements

This visual shows the number of elements in all the Revit models in this project. The number itself only gives a small indication of the project size. The main purpose of this visual is to drill down on the elements in the models themselves.

Number of rooms

This is the total, of all the rooms, in all the Revit models in this project in any condition.

Number of placed rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be the same as the "Number of rooms"

Number of NOT placed rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are NOT placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero

Number of unbounded rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are placed, but are unconstrained by a boundary, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Number of redundant rooms of all models

This is the number of rooms that are placed in the same location as another room, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero

Important to know is that a room is marked redundant when two or more rooms occupy the same place in the same Revit model but not when these rooms are in different Revit models.

Spaces

Number of spaces

This is the total, of all the spaces, in all the Revit models in this project in any condition.

Number of placed spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be the same as the "Number of spaces"

Number of NOT placed spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are NOT placed in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Number of unbounded spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are placed, but are unconstrained by a boundary, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Number of redundant spaces in all models

This is the number of spaces that are placed in the same location as another space, in all Revit models of this project. Ideally this number should be zero.

Important to know is that a room is marked redundant when two or more rooms occupy the same place in the same Revit model but not when these rooms are in different Revit models.

Without data, perception is reality!
