||The combine project: a global assessment
||The outcome of the EU funded COMBINE project will be assessed. The objectives of COMBINE (Computer Models for the Building Industry in Europe) are to deliver the first examples of a future generation of intelligent integrated building design systems to engineering design practices, with the emphasis on the energy and HVAC disciplines. The objective is accomplished by embedding proven IT solutions for dataintegration in a system architecture that enables the information exchange among the members of a building design team.An overview of the approach of the 70 man years effort between 1990 and 1995 by a consortium of 11 R and D institutions across Europe is presented..A global assessment of the overall approach and the use of available product data technology that have led to three prototypes of integrated building design systems is given.
