A lot of folks have reached out to us, looking to understand how their specific company can use A360, and what role to assign to which person. To help, we teamed up with BIM Manager Charles H. Berteaux (LRS Architects) to create an infographic, illustrating the typical breakdown of roles and personas in A360 within an Architecture firm.
So how does it look? Let’s start at the very beginning. In every A360 Team Hub you are going to start with a specific project. Each Hub will have a Team owner; this is typically the person that pays/owns your A360 Team Subscription.
Then we look at the core roles within the project. In this example it’s all the employees within “Architecture and Design Co.” that are involved with this project, including:
A360 Team Administrator – In this example, it’s the BIM Manager. As Administrator, they decide who can see what within the project.
A360 Team Members – Additional members that are added with access to the specific project. They can look through all the projects, invite other Team members (but must be approved by the administrator) and edit all content within the project.
Project Contributors (Outer Circle) – Here we are looking at those that are outside of your organization. These are known as “Project Contributors.” They have access to the project, but can only contribute. They lack the ability to add members, see other projects within your company and can only work within the project they have access to. Examples are:
Project Viewers – These are people either within, or outside of your organization, that have very limited access to the project. They basically only have viewing capabilities. Examples are:
Owner – Your boss, the guy that owns the Architecture firm and wants to see the project you are working on. He doesn’t need the details of every file, calendar invites or commentary, he just wants a high level view.
Customer – Your client, the person you’re project is being built for. They want to see it as you hit milestones and when approvals are required.
Media – Sometimes the press/media might be interested in a particular project you are working on. You definitely don’t want to give them full access, send them the “Viewer” view and they can easily see the project you’re working on, spin it around, zoom in and out, and continue to share it.
That outlines a typical use case for an Architecture firm. See the full infographic below, or save a copy to share here. Hopefully this helps you place your own firm in this template and understand how A360 could help your company with your projects.
