|From research to practice
|The paper summarizes some research efforts in areas relating to productmodeling and the implementation of results in commercial software developments.A national industry standard for 2D CAD data exchange is described. The conceptis based on an extremely compact neutral file format.programs for commercial CAD/CAM-systems have been developed as well as softwareto interface CAD with management information systems of the manufacturing companies. Also a number of vertical application relating to data exchange have beendeveloped .A standard for product data definition for precast concrete elements has beendeveloped. The specification has been implemented for data exchange betweendesign and manufacturing and also for vertical CAD-systems.A national research and development project focusing on product modeling ofbuildings and the implications of it for practical activities is described.Product modeling concepts are implemented in various other development effortsacross the building industry.Vertical CAD-systems for concrete and steel structures are described. Thesesystems have been founded on the product modeling approach.A number of translator
