Dear All,

Since the workflow in Revit has changed the way we work so much, I am wondering whether any firm has created their timesheet based on their Revit workflow. I always feel the tasks selection on a Revit-base practice could be quite different from what of a conventional 2d autocad practice.


Anyone to share theirs?

Just curious as to what you mean? In all the offices I've worked in (as an employee) I track my time to my manager, so if he/she says do X on Project A. I go and do X on Project A. I then report/bill my time to the job at the end of week. 


This process from AutoCAD is still in place when working within Revit in my experience.

I do the same thing. time is reported to the project lead and we allocate the time to the different phases of the design process (preliminary design, schematic design, design development, construction documentation, contract admin, coordination and site visits)

Thanks for the responses. Let me reiterate a bit more.  


When I was working with Microstation, the door or window schedule and ironmongery schedule was done in Excel. Usually I deal with the schedules and specification, and junior designers are responsible for the drawings.


Since Revit can generate the schedules simultaneously, now I am taking care of drawings, schedules and specifications at the same time. But indeed it takes me more time to work on 3 tasks at one time. In 2D practice, often the drawings, schedules and specifications may be taken care of by different persons at different timing.  


In a different scenario of 2D practice, when I forecast the human resources for a project, I will allocate different person on different task, maybe at different timing.


In Revit practice, many things can be generated simultaneously. But only one person (myself) in the office has the computer skills and equivalent architectural knowledge to handle multiple tasks at one time. So I have been thinking how to allocate resourcing differently to maximize the Revit power.

Answer - Expand the number of Revit users.   We found that more users in an open office raises the knowledge of all users.  Everyone shares their problems and solutions.  That allows you to follow the well-known old Latin principle Docendo discimus — "the best way to learn is to teach".
