Documentnumbers

The documentnumber is very important within BIMlink. Our versioning is dependent on corresponding documentnumbers. When uploading a document BIMlink will check if the documentnumber is already present within the project. In case the same documentnumber is present, the new document will become a new version of this documentnumber.

When searching for documents it helps when the documents have coherent numbering. The documentnumber can already contain a lot of information about the document. It is an aggregation of multiple attributes of the document. A couple of important attributes that can be part of the documentnumber are:

  • the producer,
  • phasing,
  • building or building part,
  • type of document.

In order to combine versions of the same document within a certain documentnumber, some attributes should be excluded from the documentnumber, for example the status and version number.

A uniform numbering of documents is not only important for the functioning of BIMlink, it also enables you and your team to quickly search for and find the correct documents.

Accounts and (sub)projects

An  account on BIMlink is a collection of databases containing data from one owner. This could be a real-estate developer or a building-project. A user on BIMlink can have access to multiple accounts and can switch between accounts and project by using one of the projectmenu’s.

Data and documents on BIMlink are organised in projects and sub-projects. A BIMlink account can contain multiple buildings that are organised in projects. Projects can be divided into sub-projects.  There are no folders in BIMlink, data and documents can be filtered according to their metadata. Users are free to add an unlimited amount of projects and sub-projects to their account.

Aside from structuring an account, project can also restrict

Examples of project structure based on locations and building (parts) in BIMlink:

  • Location Tree (project)
    1. Main building Stem (sub-project)
    2. Annex building Branch (sub-project)
    3. Garage Leaf (sub-project)

Example of structuring a project based on phasing:

  • Building Permits (project)
    1. Building Permit (sub-project)
    2. Use Permit (sub-project)
    3. Water Permit (sub-project)
