Revit MEP Test Scores Around The World

Autodesk Revit is building information modeling software for architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers and contractors. It allows users to design a building and structure and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements, and access building information from the building model's database. Revit is 4D BIM capable with tools to plan and track various stages in the building's lifecycle, from concept to construction and later demolition.

Over the years, KnowledgeSmart has captured test scores for thousands of Revit MEP users, in multiple countries across the globe.

Here are the variances in our overall benchmark data, from 2013 to 2015. (For the first couple of years, the data was combined into an overall value):

2013
Average Score: 65.0%
Average Time: 1 hr 16 mins

2014
Average Score: 66.0%
Average Time: 1 hr 12 mins

2015
Electrical

Average Score: 63.7%
Average Time: 1 hr 6 mins


Mechanical
Average Score: 62.2%
Average Time: 1 hr 7 mins


Plumbing
Average Score: 70.1%
Average Time: 1 hr 11 mins



Let's take a look at some overall aggregate score and time data on a country vs country basis. Numbers of test scores vary, so this list does not imply that one country is 'better' than another. It's interesting to see what kind of data is generated in different parts of the globe.
