Associating objects in an IFC model with tasks according to name, code library or WBS code

You can associate objects in an IFC model with tasks automatically, according to name, code library or WBS code. This is a particularly useful way of building a project schedule from an IFC model if you base your projects on templates, as it allows you to do much of the preparatory work - the creation of tasks, IFC product searches and IFC product selections, and the assigning of code library entries or WBS codes - beforehand, in your template.

Automatic association and IFC group models

It is possible to associate objects in an IFC group model with tasks automatically, according to name, code library or WBS code. If you do this, bear in mind that IFC product selections cannot include objects from more than one of the individual IFC models in the IFC group model. For this reason, you may find it easier to open the IFC models individually when grouping together objects using IFC product selections.
