I think the complexity and cost of the program make it particularly useful, in situations where: the project is relatively large, with a wide variety of specialties that interact and depend on one another, and with specialists who are not physically together and whose communication and understanding is vital for the proper development of the project.If the project does not meet these characteristics, it is preferable to use less complex tools, cheaper, and that require less effort training the staff to use the software in question.

Any scenario where you are managing off-site work tasks, especially if those work tasks involve virtual verification and media.

Pros

Bentley Navigator

  • It allows the different specialists or users, to make virtual and quick analyzes that have been translated into the rapid resolution of problems.
  • Bentley Navigator allowed me to incorporate and manage important amounts of information that were key in the design phase, and that being inputs for different areas could be a source of conflict. The conflicts that have been generated are much smaller than those seen in similar projects previously carried out without the help of this tool.
  • Allowing the visualization of the information in 3D models, added to its capacity to export 3D models as PD files, has allowed to increase the fluidity and communication of information with the client, which has translated into a reduction of the hours invested by the technical manager in that activity.

Cons

Bentley Navigator

  • It could give alert messages warning that the information that is of shared use, has the latest version, with all the updated modifications.
  • The information contained in the visual reports currently generated by the software could be expanded.

Alternatives Considered

Bentley Navigator

The tools and functionalities that have been used previously, are not commercial software, they have been software developed internally, of course much simpler and less functional than commercial software such as Bentley and its competition. This fact clearly obeyed a guideline of the organization that aimed to minimize the costs associated with the acquisition of software such as the Bentley.
As you learn from the experience and mistakes, once you lost a lot of time and money because you did not have the necessary tools to guarantee the timely flow of information, between personnel who were physically distant from each other but who needed of a very high technical interaction. As a result of this fact, the use of tools such as this was proposed as a test, in order to evaluate its real usefulness over time.

Return on Investment

Bentley Navigator

  • The frequency and quality of information flow between field and office staff has improved.
  • The costs for cellular use concepts associated with the sharing of information associated with the projects where the software has been used have been reduced compared to projects where more traditional control tools have been used.

  • Reduced our labor spend due to integration and automation.
  • Reduced subcontracting burdens due to advanced mobile features (i.e., eliminated the need for homework, uploading, and transcription after job completion).
