Many project teams rely on paper documents and manual data transfer to collaborate. It is not uncommon for design teams located in the same building to operate in silos. This disconnected workflow model tends to be error-prone, result in time lags, and discourage iteration, as the information is packaged, delivered, interpreted, and entered…(Read More)
