Early Building Design: Capturing Decisions for Better Interoperability

Abstract: Interoperability depends largely on accurate interpretation of data from one form to another. Current efforts (e.g., the IFCs) provide ways to do this, however such solutions are not available when work is accomplished manually. This is unfortunately how work is done today in the most important stage of building design - early building design. The translations that occur when transferring concepts to later stages or when referring to work at this stage entails a high potential for errors that increase cost and delay work. This paper investigates the work process in this early stage of building design and presents requirements for supporting it, a design that satisfies these requirements and a prototype to illustrate an implementation of the design.
