The CSI BIM Practice Group published this Revit | e-SPECS learning-video (below) defining a Small Firm's Perspective | Implementing e-SPECS Specifications authoring software. e-SPECS automates the creation of the specifications by linking directly to a project's Revit model.
e-SPECS for Revitautomates the process of creating specification manuals integrated with all Autodesk Revit-based applications. e-SPECS for Revit includes the e-SPECS Binding Manager to link Revit families to your master guide specs automatically including and filtering the sections based on the families and parameters in the BIM Model.
I was facilitating a group discussion on "BIM-Automated Specification Processes" for about 30 specification writers.
Specifiers shared "the good, the bad and the ugly" recommendations for successfully implementing e-SPECS, SpecLink or MasterSpec within their offices' BIM processes.
Throughout the discussion; Brian shared several successful processes that he developed to connect his firm's BIM and specification processes --using e-SPECS.
Fast forward to August 2013 -->> and we find Brian Payne touring Bradley's Corporate Headquarters & Fixture Manufacturing Facility in Menomonee Falls.
Brian mentioned that he created an "Implementing Auto-Specification Software With Revit" Presentation for RTC 2013 in Vancouver Canada. He emailed the links and I have the opportunity to share his docs with you.
John Lee, from PIR Sales Inc (Bradley Sales Rep Organization), is sponsoring the Bradley BIM presentation.

The Bradley BIM Initiative has grown to address the needs and ongoing requirements of Revit BIM-based processes for design and construction organizations.
Here are several ground-breaking milestones achieved by the Bradley BIM Initiative over the last couple years.
January 2011: Bradley began soliciting review and feedback from several government-based entities that were driving BIM standards. This connected Bradley with the US Army Corps of Engineers and the evolving COBie and SPie Initiatives.
Bradley is grateful for the ideas we've received from the Revit users; that have provided feedback on their experiences with our Revit Families. Their feedback is documented on our Bradley BIM FAQ page.
e-SPECS for Revit automates the process of creating specification manuals integrated with all Autodesk Revit-based applications. e-SPECS for Revit includes the e-SPECS Binding Manager to link Revit families to your master guide specs automatically including and filtering the sections based on the families and parameters in the BIM Model.
Bradley’s Revit Library integration with e-SPECS expands Bradley’s existing commitment to provide construction specification tools.
Bradley’s 3-part specifications, our expanded listings in MasterSpec and the Bradley 1000+ Revit Family Library will integrate with e-SPECS specification solutions.
In addition to the e-SPECS longtime support of MasterSpec, it also support US Dept VA, Canadian Specs (CMS and NMS), BPM specs, and custom owner and design firm master specifications integrating with Autodesk's AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks applications.
