On May 20th, Autodesk has announced the latest addition to the BIM 360 Family called BIM 360 Plan. BIM 360 Plan provides cloud-based solution to manage short-term scheduling and supports so-called lean construction or for eliminating waste in the construction process. Our colleague Paul Walker wrote comprehensive introduction of BIM 360 Plan on his blog. So I’m going to leave the detail to his blog.
You may ask: “Does BIM 360 Plan have API?” “What about the integration with Field and Glue?” “Is there a trial version?” The answers to these questions are “no” to all. There is no API for the initial release. We would be interested in hearing what kind of customization the developer would be interested in. BIM 360 Plan is a separate product in this release. We can easily imagine a scenario for integrating with Field and Glue. It will be a long term goal. BIM 360 Plan will not have a 30 day trial.
BIM 360 Plan will be available later this summer. Stay tuned for further announcement.
