From research to practice

Abstract: The paper summarizes some research efforts in areas relating to product modeling and the implementation of results in commercial software developments. A national industry standard for 2D CAD data exchange is described. The concept is based on an extremely compact neutral file format. programs for commercial CAD/CAM-systems have been developed as well as software to interface CAD with management information systems of the manufacturing companies. Also a number of vertical application relating to data exchange have been developed . A standard for product data definition for precast concrete elements has been developed. The specification has been implemented for data exchange between design and manufacturing and also for vertical CAD-systems. A national research and development project focusing on product modeling of buildings and the implications of it for practical activities is described. Product modeling concepts are implemented in various other development efforts across the building industry. Vertical CAD-systems for concrete and steel structures are described. These systems have been founded on the product modeling approach. A number of translator
