What are Smart Issues?

Smart Issues know the clashes or conflicts they represent, to which objects they belong and why and when they are reported or solved. They prevent the overhead caused by redundant clash-reporting, even by other team members doing concurrent model checking.  

Smart Issues can check the status of linked clashes automatically, without a user having to rerun clash-detection rules. This paves the way to new, more reliable, and smarter workflows that save valuable time.

Issues that ‘know’ clashes 

When you zoom into a Smart Issue in BIMcollab Zoom, it will show you the involved clash-boxes using fresh colors that reflect the clash status in the new model. This immediate visual feedback when running a quick clash-detection in the background gives you a powerful and easy way to evaluate and update issues. 

When you receive new model versions, Smart Issues can be automatically checked, updated, and closed with a single command! 

Prevent duplicate reporting

Smart Issues prevent duplicate reporting. Even if you run other clash-rules with different clash grouping in a later stage, BIMcollab Zoom will recognize the clash immediately and show its status: reported, ignored or new. 

The best part: even if team members run their own clash-rules, Zoom will still recognize the reported clashes and the Smart Issues they belong to. This enables large teams to divide the workload across multiple BIM coordinators. 

“For large projects, I can now finally work with several people at the same time. So far, we often had duplicate issues. In any case, this is a work relief!

Progress visible in the cloud 

In BIMcollab Nexus, Smart Issues show their progress in two ways: 

  • You can view the status per linked clash
  • The default viewpoint always shows the latest update

The auto-documenting of clash resolutions allows you to easily get an overview of the progress made, just by looking at the issue tiles. The more green you see, the more progress has been made.
