MSF11746 - Advance Steel: Starting from Scratch and Becoming Fully Functional This class will explore techniques for introducing the use of Advance Steel into the processes and workflows of a steel fabricator. Steel fabricators typically have very specific standards that govern how their documents look (and what their crews are expecting to see on those documents), what fabrication techniques can be utilized as a result of the available tools, and how to optimize the steel fabrication process and delivery. We will explore how to customize Advance Steel to accommodate fabricator standards, produce common CNC files, and automatically create documents that display the information that fabrication crews can easily read and interpret. The overall goal is to enhance productivity and reduce rework and fabrication errors through customization tools within Advance Steel. 60 Minutes Industry Talk erich bretz

CS10829 - Field Data Procurement Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's) and Laser Scanning The ever growing quest for faster and more accurate field data has been fueled by the increase in computing power and the decrease of equipment costs for UAV’s and laser scanners. The democratization of both types of data procurement helps continue the growth in areas of Construction and Engineering that were unthought of a few years ago. The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV or Drones) may be the greatest thing since the Internet. From reducing risk on dangerous work to simplifying surveying and mapping tasks, we have yet to see the full potential. Laser scanning is very similar, and was once thought of as an inaccurate science, has broken through this stigma and is now a common practice. This presentation will dive into the many uses of UAVs and laser scanning in heavy civil design, engineering, and construction. We will discuss the legality of their use and show examples of their potential use. See how these types of data procurement are being applied daily.

CI10944-L - Selling Transit's Triple Bottom Line How much local residents will benefit from, or be harmed by, a new transit station is an important question. Infrastructure proponents need to know who will support the new station and how, for example, might taxes be adjusted to capture some of the increased property value associated with the station. People with low incomes may benefit from, or be harmed by, infrastructure improvements more than others with higher incomes who may have more options available to them. Low income households may not have access to a car. They may have to rely on taxis. Introducing transit benefits both low and higher income groups by providing more affordable transportation. The value to the low income value population can be 5 times greater. Placing a new transit stop in a BIM model and triangulating the distances to job prospects or health services, or parks, the economic benefits can be calculated, monetized and compared with costs. 75 Minutes Hands-on Lab John Parker

I don't know how many AU classes I've attended over the last 7 years, but each year I usually find myself in at least one or two where IT becomes the root of the discussion. Frustration is expressed by users and management when talking about software / hardware, upgrades and incident management with the IT department. IT also has challenges with incomplete information or requirements definitions from its users. Nearly always though, it's about communication! In fact, most implementation failures or disappointments boil down to a lack of simple communication (listening skills), understanding perspective and goals. This talk is your chance to get access to an IT professional with many successes and service strategies who will help you begin to make change for yourself and your company. So, if any of this resonates with you, bring your IT person or just your needs and questions so that we can all share and discuss different ways to get from A to Z and enjoy the journey together. 60 Minutes Industry Talk Tim Bourdois
