Rule driven enhancement of BIM models

By Steve Lockley, Martin Cerny, Jane Matthews, Graham Capper and Prof. N. Nisbet


This paper focuses on the COBie requirement that all assets shall be classified according to a common classification system. This requirement is justified by the need to identify assets and benchmark their management performance against other assets. The lack of classification information in BIM models is less tolerable than lack of unique names, as it represents a repetitive and knowledge-intensive task to add manually. Moreover it is a manual task that may need to be repeated at several intermediate points either for carbon assessment or for COBie handover
