AssetWorks, a leader in intelligent workplace management, in partnership with ACAD-Plus, a provider of best-in-class drawing/document management solutions and computer aided design (CAD) optimization for facilities management, today jointly announced that the University of Hawaii has selected AiMCAD. The AiMCAD solution links floor plan drawing to asset management data and provides a bi-directional link between AutoCAD® drawings and the broader AiM™ integrated workplace management system (IWMS). Users of AiMCAD can easily generate detailed graphical reports directly from CAD drawings leveraging AiM data, and because AiMCAD exports accurate CAD floor plan drawing data to AiM, room counts and area calculations are also precise.
Using floor plan drawings prepared with AiMCAD, space planners at the University of Hawaii can easily experiment with room data by color-highlighting rooms to visualize various space planning scenarios. One or more floor plan drawings can be used to create planning scenarios that span multiple floors and/or buildings. Drawings can be optionally modified using standard AutoCAD commands to reflect new or demolished walls or partitions in the planning scenario.
