INTRODUCTION

 

The construction sector is entering into a new era and as a result of it, there is a need to use various types of civil engineering software to reduce the human effort. Hence, we at Nirmitee encourage the students by introducing this event -“SOFTCON” to show their talent using software such as AutoCAD, MSP, Primavera, Revit, Minitab etc.

 

EVENT FORMAT

TASK:

The problem statement will be given on the spot, and the participant has to develop the problem as per the requirements.

Following are the software kept for the event:

  • AutoCAD

  • Microsoft Project

  • Primavera

  • Revit (BIM)

  • MiniTab

  • Global Mapper (GIS)

  • MS Excel

 

 

SCHEDULE:

DAY 1: 26th March 2019          TIME: 9.00 to 3.00 pm

DAY 2: 27th March 2019          TIME: 9.00 to 1.00 pm

 

 

RULES:

AUTOCAD:

A line plan will be given on the spot and participant has to develop double line plan showing necessary details within the stipulated time.

  1. 1 person participant is allowed.

  2. Time limit: 1 hour

  3. AutoCAD 2015 will be provided.

  4. The decision of the judge will be final and binding to all.

  5. Only undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma students from recognized institutes are eligible for participation in the event.

 

MICROSOFT PROJECT:

Microsoft Project (MSP) is basically the planning software. It is used to plan the project by linking activities with their duration to find out optimum duration for the project Using MSP we can apply the resources to each activity and able to draw the cash flow charts and resource allocation charts.

  1. With your knowledge of civil engineering and logic interlink the activities which are given in a project.

  2. The most optimum duration is preferable

  3. The activity data is given in Excel. Each participant will be able to copy data on your project sheet with proper commands(Setting the calendar as per holiday and the working day is given in the problem is expected)

  4. After  linking all the activity logically participant must show the following in the Excel format

  1. The critical part of the project

  1. Time limit for each participant is 1 hour and participant with minimum time with least error will be declared as the winner.

  2. The decision of judges’ is final and binding to all.

 

PRIMAVERA:

Primavera is based on Project Management. The participant has to use the software and create basic calendars, allocate resources and create the WBS, make multiple projects. Contestants need to answer a few basic questions as well which are based on project management and Primavera.

  1. Only one participant is allowed per entry.

  2. Time allotted is one hour.

  3. Using a basic knowledge of PRIMAVERA, the problem can be solved.

  4. The winner would be chosen on the basis of maximum marks allotted.

  5. Judges decision will be final and binding.

 

REVIT (BIM):

 

Autodesk Revit is building information modeling software for architects, landscape architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers, and contractors.

We can create the model using given data regarding the structure and further we can also modify and generate different drawings of a structure in AutoCAD format. We can also analyze the modal and determine the material required for the structure (bar bending schedule, quantities).

For this event, a problem statement will be given on the spot. The participant should create the model in the given time. The participant's basic aim is to generate the model with minimum errors and finish it within the given time.

The participant must be able to operate the software on his own.

 

MINITAB (STATISTICAL SOFTWARE):

  1. With your knowledge of MINITAB Software, make use of various tabs and subtabs for the given problem statement.

  2. The data will be given at the time of the competition.

  3. Time limit for each participant is 1 hour.

  4. 1 person participant is allowed.

  5. The decision of judges is final and binding to all.

 

 

GIS: GLOBAL MAPPER

  Global Mapper is a geographic information system (GIS) software package currently developed by Blue Marble Geographics that runs on Microsoft Windows.

For this event, a problem statement will be given on the spot. The participant should map the area in the given time. The participant's basic aim is to generate the model with minimum errors and finish it within the given time.

The participant must be able to operate the software on his own.
