Plan Review Table: Best 5 Functions For Plan Reviews

Electronic plan review challenges the current paper-based process and reapplies it in electronic form.

The role of building design and construction has been shaped by technology. For example, a process that used to take weeks can now be completed in a matter of days.

Plan Review Table: Common Problems and How We Solve Them

Common Problem

  • Plans and images require review, annotation, communication, presentation, and discussion. 
  • Screens on smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers are inadequate.
  • Presentations can be made using touch screens and wall-mounted displays, but they are not ergonomic and are challenging to use. People will become distracted when information is displayed on a screen at an unfavorable angle.

The Solution

Why Should You Consider It?

While making plans takes a lot of time and effort, reviewing plans is also very essential. 

Benefits include: 

We have identified five essential functions for the engineering and construction sectors:

  • Reviewing, confirming, or evaluating a plan’s completeness for a particular purpose, such as safety,
  • To gather knowledge and take action,
  • Add comments or viewpoints to Markup,
  • Present and debate
  • Give your approval and authorization.

Architects in the building sector will review designs and plans as they develop, present, and solicit feedback from others and present for authorization and approval. 

Construction firms will review the plans to plan the construction and carry out the work by the plans. In addition, they will make notes and communicate about any issues that arise.

Paper vs Digital

Some users are still debating between using printouts and viewing plans digitally.

In terms of ROI, digital typically outperforms paper while providing significant productivity and quality advantages.

Digital allows for multi-layered, multi-colored presentations, communication and collaboration, the use of AI to highlight problems, and instant updates across all platforms, devices, and users.


This is all about making sure that plans are presented to maximize viewability. The user must be able to view and interact with the plans to ensure proper review.
