Life cycle requirements for building product models

Abstract: If progress is to be made in developing integrated computer models for representing buildings, then a careful understanding of the uses and criteria regarding buildq information over the complete life cycle is needed. This paper sets forth the expected use and general criteria regarding the phases of feasibility, design, construction planning construction and operation. Some generalizations of these criteria are identified that have implications for the architecture of a building model environment

Keywords: building product models; lifecycle; computer-aided design
