Project summary:

Basis

The project was based on EU 1077, COCON and FinnCore. These projects produced the definition and piloting of product model based information transfer. The information model for transfer was a neutral format, which was tested using OXF model by VTT. The structure was very similar to IFC Kernel/Core model and SPADEX project was taking the next step by implementing the IFC definitions. 

Goal

The goal was to use software based on IFC 1.5 final version in a pilot project. 

Phases

Phase 1

Definitions of information content for all project parties. The usability of IFC 1.5 and implementation requirements was checked. End result was class definitions for information transfer in pilot project. 

Phase 2

Develop the readiness to manage the project information by all project partners. 

Phase 3

Implementation of IFC 1.5 and possible extensions based on phases 1 and 2 in the software used by all parties. 

Phase 4

Pilot project testing information transfer using software developed in phase 3.
