AVEVA ReviewShare simplifies and promotes collaboration The new, unique AVEVA ReviewShare combines 3D design review, mark-up and collaboration into one easy-to-use application Simon Fletcher Marketing Strategy, AVEVA 3D engineering review and mark-up are important, but they are hardly new concepts. The key to AVEVA ReviewShare's uniqueness is the way in which it simplifies and promotes collaboration. Within one desktop application, ReviewShare enables a reviewer to take a 3D model of any size, put in physical mark-up, such as clouds or arrows, then add commentary and questions, each in a dedicated comment frame, all through the simplest of interfaces. The application then enables the user to wrap all this information up in a ReviewShare document, and email it to the next recipient. The recipient, opening the document, can see all previous mark-up and comments, make their own additions, and then email all this, quickly and easily, anywhere around the world for the addition of further comments and mark-up – and so on, until all those involved have made their contribution. And all this in a small document that even low-bandwidth users can cope with. ReviewShare makes it easy for all reviewers to work together – no matter where they are located – and gives them realistic tools to achieve this goal. Partner accessibility is a key objective ReviewShare's full 3D functionality works through a server connection. Uniquely, ReviewShare enables you to extend this connection to selected partners outside your organisation, such as suppliers and contractors, so that they, too, can view, review, mark up, and comment on the same models as you. Indeed, this partner accessibility is a key objective of ReviewShare. It is made possible by a combination of intelligence contained within the ReviewShare document and the way the client/server relationship is configured. AVEVA ReviewShare in action, showing mark-up, annotation and a trail of comments from different reviewers. View and mark-up information is captured within the ReviewShare document, which can be circulated by email. It can, of course, be secured in various ways, including password protection. At no extra cost, existing users of AVEVA Review will receive AVEVA ReviewShare (both the client Reader and the server connection) as part of the forthcoming AVEVA Review 6.4. Anyone who receives a ReviewShare document but does not have the application on their machine, will simply be prompted to download ReviewShare from the AVEVA website. Without the server connection, ReviewShare still provides a useful mark-up and collaboration tool, though only in 2D. AVEVA ReviewShare knows no organisational, national or virtual boundaries AVEVA ReviewShare is a collaborative tool that knows no organisational, national or virtual boundaries. It is a natural stepping stone to an even more advanced world of managed collaboration, where information about systems and components is as important as the design process behind those systems and components, and where the consequences of change and decision-making can be automatically modelled.
