How Plan Analyst Works

  • Fill in the forms to complete the building description.
  • Plan Analyst then searches through the code, completing all required time-consuming calculations and creates a code study that includes only the code requirements that apply to the project.
  • Create a correction report by reviewing the questions in the correction report section. The questions are customized to include only what is specific to the project. When you have reviewed and answered the prompted questions a correction report is created complete with all verifying code references.
  • If you are checking paper plans, you can attach this report to the plans eliminating additional report generation and reducing client code questions.
  • If you are checking plans using AutoDesk Design Review, you can simply cut and paste the required corrections from Plan Analyst to the Callouts boxes at the appropriate places on the plan. No paper!
