While ProjectWise is now live and in use in the NCDOT the ProjectWise team continues to enhance and expand its capabilities. Recent enhancements of the NCDOT ProjectWise system include:
- Automatic creation of a project in ProjectWise when Preconstruction site request and processed.
- Automatic publishing of PDF renditions to SharePoint on request.
Other enhancements currently being worked on include.
- Working with all the units within the NCDOT to configure the folders and attributes for their specific needs.
- Working on automatically generating folders for individual structures in the appropriate disciplines, driven from the Project Structures list in the Preconstruction project sites.
NCDOT is migrating to ProjectWise for the Preconstruction Projects
NCDOT will allow PEFs to use ProjectWise and work directly in the NCDOT data source, which is a cloud-hosted by Bentley. This access will require PEFs to have a Bentley Connect Licensing to utilize the ProjectWise Explorer desktop client. Projects will be managed by the appropriate NCDOT project management groups. Once the project has been assigned to a PEF, the permissions will be sent to the ProjectWise Support Group to be set.
Migration of Older Projects.
Current projects on Project Store will remain unless they are approved by the Project Manager and the ProjectWise Support Group. If you have any issues or need assistance, please email - firstname.lastname@example.org .
PEF Members Access to Projects in ProjectWise.
For each firm to gain access, the project manager will submit an access form to the PEF ProjectWise Administrator. The PEF ProjectWise Administrator can fill out the membership request form and submit it to the ProjectWise Support Group. If a firm wants to remove members from their group, please email that request also to - email@example.com .
