Location, Location, Location: 50 Models, 50 Contributors, 20 Companies, 5 Buildings, and 1 Site

I'll be presenting at Autodesk University 2011 in Las Vegas. We'll be discussing the management of large multi-file, multi-building, multi-team projects. (LF5038 At the Design Leadership Forum before Autodesk University, on Monday, November 28th 2011 in Marcello 4504 at 1:00 PM-2:00 PM)
Class Description:
Location can become a big issue in an Autodesk® Revit® project. How do we collaborate between multiple offices? How do we exchange data, coordinate building position, link models, and keep the chaos away when everyone is working in multiple companies, locations, platforms, and units? We will look at lessons learned, and the management tools and techniques used to settle issues of model linking, central file sharing, shared coordinate systems, Revit Server, and model content.
