ACI Foundation will develop a strategic plan for the development of Industry Foundation Classes (IFCs) for Structural Concrete Components, to foster interoperability between disparate Building Information Modeling (BIM) software platforms. This is the initial step in the creation of an extensive suite of interoperable attributes for the IFC exchanges of structural concrete components. The Plan will synthesize the state of the art of IFC interoperability and prioritize the attribute exchanges that will best benefit the industry. The research will be conducted under the direction of the Applied Technology Council (ATC). The products will describe the findings of the feasibility study on encouraging utilization by the design and construction community.
