General Settings

The General setting section lets you specify Categories setting, LOD setting and the units of measurement for the project.

  • Category Setting - Helps you select categorization for elements, you can either select Generic Classification or Omniclass classification. Generic classification gives you a categorization of elements based on type of works viz. Architectural, plumbing, Structural, Electrical, Mechanical, Civil. Omniclass Classification gives you a categorization of elements based on the actual structure of the project viz. Substructure, Interiors, Shell, Services, Equipment and Furnishings, Sitework, special construction and demolition materials

  • LOD Setting - Helps you select the type of setting for LOD selection to define scope of works on a project. For more details on LOD you can read this article.

  • Units setting - Helps you select the system of units for the project, you can select either Metric or Imperial system of units.

Responsibility Matrix

Responsibility Matrix is a summary of responsibilities in a matrix which is automatically created. It directly reflects the information from the Model Progression Matrix and LOD Matrix where the scope of work has been selected for various categories and sub-categories against different phases and the tags provided for a company or a user for a category in scope.

Although, Responsibility Matrix only displays companies responsible at different phases of a project for each discipline and none of the information cannot be edited from here. To change it, modify the tags in the LOD or Model Progression matrices.
