Collaboration requirements and interoperability fundamentals in BIM based multi-disciplinary building design processes
This paper is reflecting the concepts of the buildingSMART standards IDM (Information Delivery Manual) and MVD (Model View Definition) based on specific energy effi cient BIM-information levels within design processes. Taking into account the needs of different LOD (Level of Development) stages, the impact of LoD (Level of Detail), and LoA (Level of Approximation) an extended definition of LoI (Level of Information) is being proposed. The paper also reflects the potential to derive well defined purposes for BIM-information exchange on the basis of so called BIM-Functions. The research that this paper is based on was conducted within the eeEmbedded project. eeEmbedded is funded by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme.
