Dashboard Donkeys: look at my pie chart!
16 Oct 2019
As BIM projects become ever more complex, performing analysis of project data is an important component in the repertoire of an Information Manager. Scripting tools like dynamo and node-red are allowing a new generation of IMs to access model data, and summary tools like PowerBI and Tableau make it all look very pretty. The only problem is that more often than not, all this data is over-simplified into basic charts or focusing on irrelevant data losing many, if not all the benefits. Fed up with just replicating what could be performed in Excel, Michael challenged himself to pull data from his own life (i.e., not Revit’) to demonstrate the story-telling power of dashboards and why you need to use them.
