Improving the Robustness of Model Exchanges Using Product Modeling "Concepts" for IFC Schema

Publication: Computing in Civil Engineering (2011)

Abstract

Empirical approaches to define Model View Definitions (MVD) for exchange specifications exist and are expensive to build, test, and maintain. This paper presents the novel idea of developing modular and reusable MVDs from IFC Product Modeling Concepts. The need and application for defining model views in a more logical manner is illustrated with examples from current MVD development. A particular focus of this paper is on precast entities in a building system. Presented is a set of criteria to define fundamental semantic concepts articulated within the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) to improve the robustness of model exchanges.
