TRIRIGA and Autodesk Collaborate to Automate Design Intelligence Processes Throughout the Project Life Cycle

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 28, 2001: TRIRIGA INC., a leading provider of business automation software for the hospitality, aerospace, and design/build industries, today announced a joint initiative with Autodesk, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADSK – news), the world’s leading design software and digital content company.
Together, the companies have developed a bidirectional link between Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.3 and TRIRIGA Intelligent Business System(TM) (IBS(TM)) products, providing a way to extend model-based design intelligence throughout a project’s life cycle.
Autodesk and TRIRIGA will showcase this new capability at the ninth annual Autodesk University at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, November 27-30.
TRIRIGA IBS is an enterprise-class software system that manages and streamlines the business processes associated with large-scale construction and capital expenditure projects. Built on a unique Design to Operation(TM) (D2O(TM)) methodology, the software provides a centralized, Web-based system with a suite of integrated tools to control all aspects of a project, from design specifications and cost estimating to automating RFQ/RFP and procurement activities.
With tools optimized for architectural design development and construction documentation, Autodesk Architectural Desktop lets users design the way they want, whether in 2D or 3D — using model-based design or traditional drawing methods — all while benefiting from Web-based collaboration. TRIRIGA’s design intelligence functionality provides an easy way to import information from Autodesk Architectural Desktop drawings at the object level. This information is then stored within TRIRIGA’s centralized knowledge base, which can be accessed and shared online by owners, designers, subcontractors, suppliers, and project teams to drive all project-related activities.
“The design/build community now has a complete set of tools to manage the design process, marking a significant advance in how building design professionals can work,” explained Phil Bernstein, FAIA, Vice President of Autodesk’s Building Industry Division. “Organizations can leverage Autodesk Architectural Desktop to create a single, intelligent building model, and integrate it with TRIRIGA IBS to enhance design coordination, collaboration, and workflow.”
“By extending the intelligence of Autodesk Architectural Desktop drawings to TRIRIGA IBS, project teams can reduce inaccuracies, improve communication, and ensure project efficiency,” explained Anthony A. Marnell III, President and CEO of TRIRIGA Inc. “As a result, organizations can effectively maintain control of projects from start to finish, and reduce the time and costs associated with construction and capital expenditures.”
