AUGIWorld April 2017 Issue
Manager is so much more than a job title or occupational description. Regardless of whether you hold the actual title, you manage lots of things every single day. Making solid decisions, visualizing a project’s outcome and coordinating tasks accordingly, discovering a process improvement and putting it into place—all fall under the general category of “management.”
The April 2017 issue of AUGIWorld focuses on management in its many forms.
For example, Philip Russo demonstrates “Wall Management and Coordination” inside Revit Structure software.
And AutoCAD Architecture expert Melinda Heavrin helps you get control of 2D and 3D section objects in “Working with Sections.”
Read on to gain good ideas for how to better manage a wide variety of things.
