Information exchange architectures for building models

Abstract: The work in building product models, beyond the need to develop the appropriate semantics for representing building data, needs to address the information flow issues arising from the current procedures of architecture, engineering and construction practice. Offered here are four scenarios common to building practice and an analysis of the information flow issues arising from the need to support these scenarios. The issues arising from such studies are named Information Exchange Architectures. The study of Information Exchange Architectures is posed as an area requiring much study if data exchange technologies are to be used in everyday practice.
