What you can do with Autodesk Tandem
Start curating your digital twin in 7 steps and turn your BIM data into business intelligence
The user’s goal is to establish an environment where data can be curated for digital twin. This will typically happen when a build team is established. A project is initiated by AEC-O as a lead, others are invited to collaborate and contribute.
The user’s goal is to initialize their facility, set up all of the source files and begin to identify the initial structure of data within the facility. This means sourcing their models and project document management system.
The goal is to break apart the facility into manageable worksets. Within Tandem, this means filtering specific groups based on model data, creating views, managing inventory columns, initial Revit > Twin data mapping, general understanding of scope of data to be collected.
The user is now ready to begin the actual process of defining asset types, or assigning the appropriate classification value.
Contributors from multiple functions can now interact with views/packages and contribute data. Leads during this process can source data requirements from Tandem and share with counterparts for data collection.
As data is captured, curation manager provide validation process to understand completeness and accuracy.
As data is validated and packages are ready for handover, the information can be transfered to the owner.
Quick start tutorials.
Get to grips with the basics of Tandem.
With Facility Templates, your teams can either follow industry standards, use those standards as a starting point, or build their own.
With Autodesk Tandem, project teams can contribute to a single digital hub capturing required data for a digital handover.
In this tutorial, we define what an asset, parameter, parameter sets, classification, and facility templates are and how you can get started with tagging assets.
Autodesk Tandem FAQs
Autodesk Tandem federates all the data created over the course of a project into one, comprehensive, and simple digital replica. Autodesk Tandem enables project teams to work with an owner to specify the data they need and capture that data throughout a project’s lifecycle. The resulting digital replica can then be handed over to the owner, accelerating their operational readiness and providing them with a simplified data management system, helping deliver greater insight, and empowering them to make better business and operational decisions.

Autodesk Tandem is a platform that empowers AEC firms to harness all the data they create and deliver more value to their customers. Considering 80% of the lifetime cost of a facility is in operations, Autodesk Tandem can help project teams expand their business through data. By delivering a digital handover to owners, they will not only enable more efficient operations, but they will also contribute to reducing waste, lowering operational and maintenance costs, and maximizing the value of the owner’s investments.
Autodesk Tandem streamlines the handover process through a clear understanding of the owner’s desired outcomes, operational asset data requirements, and parties responsible for relevant data. It also makes project data trackable and transparent within the digital twin, validating deliverables during the planning, designing, and building of facilities.
Autodesk Tandem currently supports Revit 2017 and later, as well as IFC files when uploading models. We are utilizing the Forge Data Pipeline to ingest design data and over time will support other Autodesk formats. Specific formats and timing will be driven by customer input.
