I'm one of three cad/revit users in an owner setting (I/we don't work for an AE firm but are owner reps/employees) and basically the only one using revit (senior) we don't need a lot of advanced skills for we contract that out to our main AE firm (Firm-A) on occasion we will outsource to a different firm (Firm-B or C etc.) for a remodel project depending on Firm A's workload. As a building(s) owner we are now implimenting an Integrated Workplace Management System, this IWMS will sync to a revit file/model and pull in the area plans in the model and then allow us to edit the room content including but not limited to employee in the room, fixed and movable assets that are also associated with the room etc. The IWMS program identifies the model by the GUID number, so this model must always contain the same GUID number after each remodel project so that it can be sync'd back in to the IWMS and thus the room data will too be updated. My question is this, if I have Firm A build a model to use in my IWMS and then share that same model with firm B when firm B returns the model to me will it contain the same GUID number? Will detaching it from the central model change the GUID number? When firm B send me the completed model in return and if it has a different name for the model will it still be the same model according the the GUID? How/What would be the best way to send a model to firm B, should I send them the original model and then request that they use that as the Central model and return it to me after the project updates have been made to the central? I would imagine they would want to detach from central as they pass it around their firm, but also need to have that central model back that includes the original GUID number to again be re-sync'd.

Any thoughts? would greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions. Thanks!
