Cast-in-Place Concrete National BIM Standard Phase Two: Model View Definition

Research purpose

Phase Two – DESIGN: Phase Two of the National BIM Standard process involves translation of the exchange requirements into IFC-based code, and instructions for translator implementation by software companies. Phase One identified three critical exchanges and two priority exchanges as the focus for Phase Two. Model View Definitions (MVDs) that realize the requirements of these exchanges will be generated. The steps in this phase include innovations developed by the Technical Support Team (For members, see Appendix) and will utilize Semantic Exchange Modules (SEMs).
