Are you collaborating effectively?

Collaboration among the players on design and production teams is nothing new. But are you collaborating effectively? Are the right people collaborating with the right people at the right time? Are you making the most of the tools at your disposal through Autodesk products to accomplish this vital process?

The August 2013 issue of AUGIWorld explores the issue of collaboration and introduces some tools and concepts you'll want to investigate further. For example, Brian Benton presents Collaborate with Autodesk Design Feed, a look at how this tool can streamline the collaboration process.

In Collaboration Defined, Glenn Jowett brings the dictionary definition of collaboration to life for Revit Structure users. Collaboration in Civil 3D with Data Shortcuts provides a step-by-step process, courtesy of author Sam Lucido.
