BCS Wrap Up: Chart Exercise Results

In the weeks following the BCS event, we’ve had some time to regroup from the hectic planning stages and pause to consider some of the outcomes of our inaugural event. We are greatly encouraged by the positive feedback we received from those who attended.  There are many new ideas floating around for next year already, also based on your feedback.  We look forward to engaging with an even more diverse group (including more owners, contractors and manufacturers) and enhancing the agenda with specialized ‘tracts’. Of course, we’ll provide you with information as we firm up the details.

Please! I encourage you to fill out your survey that you received 2 weeks ago if you haven’t yet.

Also, several of us have formed an ‘informal’ BCS channel on Slack to allow the discussions to continue.  We want the productive vibe to live on!  Contact @jrostar, @RandallSStevens or @parleyburnett on Twitter if you’d like to join.

Onto the reason for this post! We had everybody attending BCS fill one of these out:



The idea was for each person to chart out how they see the magnitude / fidelity of Data and Geometry transforming throughout a project lifecycle.   We wanted to see how varied each persons chart is, AND what conclusions can be made when looking at the average of the results. Here are the compiled results: (Special thanks to Bob Weygant for compiling these!)

Geometry - 2015-08-20_10-31-33

Data - 2015-08-20_10-30-45

The committee thought we should call these the MacMaller curves since Aaron Maller was one of the brains behind it! (MacLeamy Curve anybody?) It IS interesting to compare these two AND the lines representing each contingent.  We’ll let you draw your own conclusions!

We hope that you enjoyed the event as much as we did.  We’re already looking forward to the next one.

Check back soon here for some thoughts from the individuals who led the table discussions!
