||Documents for the Contractor - StLB
||In the middle of 1960 the public authorities of the federal state of Nordrhein Westfalen in West Germany began to use data processing to produce documents, i.e. building descriptions for contractors. They started with existing sample building descriptions and soon realized, that these documents were nor suitable for data processing. A special committee the Joint Committee on Electronics in the Buildings Industry (Gemeinsamer Ausschuss Elektronik im Bauwesen, GAEB) was founded in 1966 to develop building descriptions, suitable for electronic data processing. The committee developed the StLB (Standard Library of Descriptions of Building Works) as a common language in the building industry. Similar developments could be observed in other German speaking countries such as Austria and Switzerland but also in Great Britain.
