Use the following estimates to help define project size. The model database is an important factor in determining project size.

The number of users for each project size below (small, medium, and large) is the effective number connected to a single server. The effective number of users should be calculated by taking into consideration:

  1. Global Workshare Setup - use the 25% formula above

  2. Drawing Batch server - add 3 users

  3. Remote IFC - add 1 user

One small project

  • 1 to 15 effective users on one database server

  • 32 GB of RAM recommended

  • Model database up to 20 GB

  • Server is used for model and catalog databases and catalog file server

  • Separate interference checking (IFC) computer

  • Separate drawing batch computer

  • Name generator server and licensing computer

  • Modeling (detail design) and administrator workstations can be on separate or on the same computers

One medium project

  • 16 to 50 effective users on one database server

  • 64 GB of RAM recommended

  • Model database 20 - 50 GB

  • Databases and catalog file server

  • Separate interference checking (IFC) computer

  • One or more separate drawing batch computer

  • Name generator server and licensing computer

  • Modeling (detail design) and administrator computers can be on separate or on the same computer

  • Use a separate distribution server for Global Workshare Configuration

One large project

  • 51 to 100 effective users on one database server (contact Customer Support if you plan to have more than 100 effective users on one database server)

  • 128 GB of RAM recommended

  • Model database 50 GB or more

  • Databases and catalog file server (have a separate catalog file server for multiple large projects or plants sharing the same catalog)

  • Separate interference checking (IFC) computer

  • Multiple separate drawing batch computer

  • Name generator server and licensing computer

  • Modeling (detail design) computers

  • Use a separate distribution server for Global Workshare Configuration

  • Administrator computer
