||How BcXML handles construction semantics
||R van Rees, Tolman F, Beheshti R
||The paper focuses on the development of a new Communication Technology for theBuilding-Construction industry, called bcXML. One problem that has to be solvedbefore ICT really will help to increase the BC industry's competitiveness is the wayconstruction semantics should be treated. Over the years several approaches havebeen researched, but none was able to provide a satisfactory solution. What isneeded is a common (neutral) taxonomy with definitions of objects and propertieswith units and names in different languages and alphabets that can be used tocreate and translate meaningful XML-based messages, but that is not part of theactual standard. Such an approach would in particular serve the purpose of thefragmented European Building and Construction industry, and is prerequisite forthe unification and industrialization of the European Building and Constructionindustry. The paper describes how eConstruct handled building and constructionsemantics.
