An Integrated Process for Delivering IFC Based Data Exchange

by Jan Karlshøj last modified Feb 22, 2014 03:12 PM
This document describes the current methodology of producing Information Delivery Manuals (IDM) and Model View Definitions (MVD). It is the purpose an IDM to capture processes and ex-change requirements while MVD is aiming at mapping exchange requirements to a data schema, like the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC), and potential constrains to the used data model. The document contains both a methodology for producing both IDM and MVD as they can be seen as an integrated approach of how business cases can be supported or automated through the use of information technology. This current version of the document is an intermediate version of the methodology while the format mvdXML for documenting MVDs and supporting tools are being sta-bilized. This version of the methodology is mainly published to provide the foundation for a pro-posed update of the existing ISO 29481-1:2010 Building information modelling - Information deliv-ery manual - Part 1: Methodology and format published by International Standard Organization and creation of an additional part to the standard “Building information modelling - Information delivery manual – Part 3: Model View Definitions”. Authors of this document are Richard See, Jan Karlshoej and Dianne Davis.
