Synchro PRO is a rapidly developing software worth close attention of planning, VDC and BIM specialists. It is flexible in data management, so you can easily import and process wide range of file formats, combine and synchronize files with source ones. Synchro PRO is also a CPM-based scheduling software therefore you are free to import, modify, synchronize or create work program from the scratch.
This course aimed to train you how to use Synchro PRO more effectively, in creative and interoperable way. You will learn how to integrate it with Autodesk Products and Microsoft Project, process imported files and schedules, create and manage user field data, visually interpret data, as well as use Synchro PRO for reporting.
It is recommended the course listener have to have some knowledge and a little experience working in Synchro PRO, however not a compulsory requirement.
