Provides an international framework for the creation of a information Schema for the Railway infrastructure domain

This guidance was issued in July 2019 by the UK BIM Alliance, BSI and CDDB as a complement to?Information Management according to BS EN ISO 19650 – Guidance Part 1: Concepts, published in April 2019.??
It aims to help UK businesses and public clients understand the processes?indicated?in ISO 19650, with a focus on the different parties and their team activities referred in the standard:?the?Appointing Party, Lead Appointed Party and Appointed Party; the Project Team, Delivery Team and Task Team.?
The guidance explains the role of each party by summarising their activities and outputs at each stage of the construction project, for instance how to coordinate information requirements, delivery milestones and information standards. It covers how to?establish?the information protocol, the management of the common data environment, how the information should be shared,?reviewed?and eventually archived alongside the lessons learned to help with future projects.??
It details how each party fits into a team and across teams, which documents need compiling, which resources need sourcing and/or mobilising, how information models are assessed for compliance and which party?is in charge of, say,?establishing?the delivery team’s capability and?capacity.?
A summary?provides?an overview of the Information Management Process, divided in stages, from Assessment and Need through Tender, Appointment, Mobilization, Collaborative Production of information and Information Model Delivery to Project Close-out.

Watch: Smart Object Library

A Smart Object Library provides a bank of CAD objects that are developed in such a way as to enhance connectivity between different datastores for regularly used asset types. The library is a database of frequently used asset types (smart objects) in template form, which allows for the development of 3D models of new or existing assets with relative ease and minimal data input. It also allows for easier sharing of data with third parties.
