This International standard sets out the concepts, principles and the general structure for product data templates for products used in construction works. This general structure can be used to describe any product, e.g. in the domains of construction products, mechanical products, electrical products, plumbing products, and HVAC products.
This standard gives the specification of a taxonomy model based on ISO 12006-3 Building construction -- Organization of information about construction works -- Part 3: Framework for object-oriented information, that provides a methodology for creating concepts, grouping concepts, and defining relationships between concepts. Concepts defined in this standard are representing reference documents, product types, properties, property sets, quantities, units and values, with relationships between the concepts to provide the formal description of the product type as well as its typical behavior. This structure of concepts and relationships forms the basis for a product data template.
This standard describes how product data templates shall be linked to IFC classes according EN ISO 16739 - Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) for data sharing in the construction and facility management industries, by describing the general rule for creating relations between xtdsubject and xtdproperty with Ifc entities and Ifc properties in a data dictionary based on EN ISO 12006-3 Building construction -- Organization of information about construction works -- Part 3: Framework for object-oriented information.
This standard describes the general product data template structure that shall be used for developing specific product data templates based on domain and/or specific areas such as standards developed in ISO/IEC, CEN/CENELEC, ASTM, ANSI, etc.

This new Standard will specify requirements for information management in relation to the operation and maintenance of assets (buildings and infrastructure)
It will cover the information management processes to:
a)    establish an asset breakdown structure and data dictionary;
b)    establish and fulfil the organization’s requirements for information throughout the operational phase of an asset and for operational information throughout the delivery phase of an asset;
c)    create an asset information model (AIM) for an existing asset or portfolio of assets;
d)    create an AIM from selected contents of a project information model (PIM) from a construction project;
e)    exchange asset information with appointed parties (service providers) during operation and maintenance activities, and also during construction projects.
f)    revise the AIM as the asset changes
g)    record information relating to the disposal, decommissioning or demolition of an asset;
h)    use the AIM to support organizational business processes; and
i)    hold the AIM as a resource for the organization.
NOTE 1 In developing and implementing these processes it is important to consider ISO 19650-5 and the need for adoption of appropriate and proportionate security-minded policies, processes and procedures to ensure that sensitive assets and data/information are afforded appropriate protection.
NOTE 2 References to information should be understood to cover both data and information relevant to both asset and facilities management.
This standard will be for use by organizations and individuals responsible for the operation, maintenance and strategic management of assets. It will also be of use to individuals involved in exchanging information from a PIM to and from an AIM. In addition, it will be of use to individuals involved in exchanging information throughout the life of an asset.
The standard will not cover detailed information content as this can only be defined in the information requirements which are developed by the organization. However, the standard will identify activities and documents which define information content.

This proposed ISO standard will specify requirements for the security-minded management of projects utilizing digital technologies, associated control systems, for example building management systems, digital built environments and smart asset management. It outlines security threats to information during asset:.
• conception, strategy and briefing;
• procurement;
• design;
• construction;
• commissioning and handover;
• operation and maintenance;
• performance management;
• change of use/modification; and
• disposal/demolition.
It will explain the need for, and application of,trustworthiness and security controls throughout a built asset’s lifecycle (including the full project lifecycle) to deliver a holistic approach encompassing:
• safety;
• authenticity;
• availability (including reliability);
• confidentiality;
• integrity;
• possession;
• resilience; and
• utility.
The standard will address the steps required to create and cultivate an appropriate safety and security mindset and culture across many partners, including the need to monitor and audit compliance.
It will provide a foundation to support the evolution of future digital built environments, for example intelligent buildings, infrastructure and smart cities, but does not detail technical architectures for their implementation. While the processes contained within it may be applicable to other data management systems, this PAS does not specifically address issues relating to these systems.

This document defines an open and stable container format to exchange files of a heterogeneous nature
to deliver, store and archive documents that describe an asset throughout its entire lifecycle.
It is suitable for all parties dealing with information concerning the built environment, where there is
a need to exchange multiple documents and their interrelationships, either as part of the process or
as contracted deliverables. The format is intended to use resources either included in the container
(such as documents) or referenced remotely (such as web resources). A key feature is that the container
can include information about the relationships between the documents. Relevant use-cases reflect the
need for information exchange during the entire life cycle of any built asset and can include, but are not
limited to, the handover of
1. a published bidding package,
2. required project deliverables at a specific project stage (e.g. when proposing different design
scenarios),
3. shared information as background or for further development,
4. published approval packages, or
5. information about versions between partners to provide a means to reference particular states of
the information and track changes.

ISO 12006-2:2015 defines a framework for the development of built environment classification systems. It identifies a set of recommended classification table titles for a range of information object classes according to particular views, e.g. by form or function, supported by definitions. It shows how the object classes classified in each table are related, as a series of systems and sub-systems, e.g. in a building information model.
ISO 12006-2:2015 does not provide a complete operational classification system, nor does it provide the content of the tables, though it does give examples. It is intended for use by organizations which develop and publish such classification systems and tables, which may vary in detail to suit local needs. However, if this part of ISO 12006 is applied in the development of local classification systems and tables, then harmonization between them will be facilitated.
ISO 12006-2:2015 applies to the complete life cycle of construction works, including briefing, design, documentation, construction, operation and maintenance, and demolition. It applies to both building and civil engineering works, including associated engineering services and landscaping.

This European standard provides core product category rules (PCR) for Type III environmental declarations for any construction product and construction service.
NOTE   The assessment of social and economic performances at product level is not covered by this standard.
The core PCR:
-   defines the parameters to be declared and the way in which they are collated and reported,
-   describes which stages of a product’s life cycle are considered in the EPD and which processes are to be included in the life cycle stages,
-   defines rules for the development of scenarios,
-   includes the rules for calculating the Life Cycle Inventory and the Life Cycle Impact Assessment underlying the EPD, including the specification of the data quality to be applied,
-   includes the rules for reporting predetermined, environmental and health information, that is not covered by LCA for a product, construction process and construction service where necessary,
-   defines the conditions under which construction products can be compared based on the information provided by EPD.
For the EPD of construction services the same rules and requirements apply as for the EPD of construction products.

The primary purpose of ISO 16757 is the provision of data structures for electronic product catalogues to transmit building services product data automatically into models of building services software applications. This includes a meta model for the specification of product classes and their properties and a meta model for the product data which is exchanged in product catalogues. Product data has to follow the specifications for their product groups.
ISO 16757-1:2015 specifies
the underlying concepts,
a generic model specifying the available modelling elements and their relationships, and
a framework for the specification of the Content Parts by describing the elements which are to be provided by these Parts.

ISO 16757-2:2016 describes the modelling of building services product geometry. The description is optimized for the interchange of product catalogue data and includes
- shapes for representing the product itself,
- symbolic shapes for the visualization of the product's function in schematic diagrams,
- spaces for functional requirements,
- surfaces for visualization, and
- ports to represent connectivity between different objects.
The shape and space geometry is expressed as Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) based on geometric primitives concatenated to boundary representations by Boolean operations. ISO 16757-2:2016 uses the applicable primitives from ISO 10303‑42 and from ISO 16739 and adds primitives which are required for the special geometry of building services products. For symbolic shapes, line elements are also used.
ISO 16757-2:2016 neither describes the inner structure and internal functionality of the product nor the manufacturing information because this is typically not published within a product catalogue.
Building services products can have millions of variant dimensions. To avoid the exchange of millions of geometries, a parametric model is introduced which allows the derivation of variant-specific geometries from the generic model. This is necessary to reduce the data to be exchanged in a catalogue to a manageable size. The parametric model will result in smaller data files, which can be easier transmitted during data exchanges.
The geometry model used does not contain any drawing information such as views, line styles or hatching.

This document is part of a series of International Standards for information management using building information modelling and focuses specifically on the delivery phase of assets, where the majority of graphical models, structured data and documentation, known collectively as an information model, are accumulated throughout the entire delivery phase.
Commencing at the point at which a client identifies the need to initiate a project to build, maintain, refurbish, or decommission an asset, this document defines the activities and tasks to be undertaken in order to successfully implement this International Standard.
In practice, there are a multitude of different delivery systems, procurement routes and contractual arrangements from which clients normally choose one or more which fit best the specific requirements of its project, e.g. design-bid-build, design-build, EPC (engineer-procure-construct), alliancing, partnering etc. In consequence, roles, procedures, processes, activities or tasks described in this document may vary or be different in live projects, depending on the delivery systems, number and type of supply chains, procurement routes, contractual arrangements etc.
However, the concepts and principles outlined or defined in this document should be adopted and applied accordingly, taking into account the specific circumstances and requirements of the project concerned. The EIR should specify or guide how this will be achieved in the project. As a general rule,
contracting parties and the members of the project and delivery teams should agree details in time.

ISO 29481-1:2016 specifies
- a methodology that links the business processes undertaken during the construction of built facilities with the specification of information that is required by these processes, and
- a way to map and describe the information processes across the life cycle of construction works.
ISO 29481-1:2016 is intended to facilitate interoperability between software applications used during all stages of the life cycle of construction works, including briefing, design, documentation, construction, operation and maintenance, and demolition. It promotes digital collaboration between actors in the construction process and provides a basis for accurate, reliable, repeatable and high-quality information exchange.

ISO 16757-2:2016 describes the modelling of building services product geometry. The description is optimized for the interchange of product catalogue data and includes - shapes for representing the product itself, - symbolic shapes for the visualization of the product's function in schematic diagrams, - spaces for functional requirements, - surfaces for visualization, and - ports to represent connectivity between different objects. The shape and space geometry is expressed as Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) based on geometric primitives concatenated to boundary representations by Boolean operations. ISO 16757-2:2016 uses the applicable primitives from ISO 10303‑42 and from ISO 16739 and adds primitives which are required for the special geometry of building services products. For symbolic shapes, line elements are also used. ISO 16757-2:2016 neither describes the inner structure and internal functionality of the product nor the manufacturing information because this is typically not published within a product catalogue. Building services products can have millions of variant dimensions. To avoid the exchange of millions of geometries, a parametric model is introduced which allows the derivation of variant-specific geometries from the generic model. This is necessary to reduce the data to be exchanged in a catalogue to a manageable size. The parametric model will result in smaller data files, which can be easier transmitted during data exchanges. The geometry model used does not contain any drawing information such as views, line styles or hatching.

ISO 29481-2:2012 specifies a methodology and format for describing ?coordination acts' between actors in a building construction project during all life cycle stages.
It therefore specifies
a methodology that describes an interaction framework,
an appropriate way to map responsibilities and interactions that provides a process context for information flow,
a format in which the interaction framework should be specified.

ISO 12006-2:2015 defines a framework for the development of built environment classification systems. It identifies a set of recommended classification table titles for a range of information object classes according to particular views, e.g. by form or function, supported by definitions. It shows how the object classes classified in each table are related, as a series of systems and sub-systems, e.g. in a building information model. ISO 12006-2:2015 does not provide a complete operational classification system, nor does it provide the content of the tables, though it does give examples. It is intended for use by organizations which develop and publish such classification systems and tables, which may vary in detail to suit local needs. However, if this part of ISO 12006 is applied in the development of local classification systems and tables, then harmonization between them will be facilitated. ISO 12006-2:2015 applies to the complete life cycle of construction works, including briefing, design, documentation, construction, operation and maintenance, and demolition. It applies to both building and civil engineering works, including associated engineering services and landscaping.

The primary purpose of ISO 16757 is the provision of data structures for electronic product catalogues to transmit building services product data automatically into models of building services software applications. This includes a meta model for the specification of product classes and their properties and a meta model for the product data which is exchanged in product catalogues. Product data has to follow the specifications for their product groups. ISO 16757-1:2015 specifies the underlying concepts, a generic model specifying the available modelling elements and their relationships, and a framework for the specification of the Content Parts by describing the elements which are to be provided by these Parts.

The aim of ISO 16354:2013 is to distinguish categories of knowledge libraries and to lay the foundation for uniform structures and content of such knowledge libraries and for commonality in their usage. By drawing up a number of guidelines, a guiding principle is provided for new libraries as well as for upgrading existing libraries. Without these guidelines there is an undesirable amount of freedom, so that the various libraries may become too heterogeneous. This would render the comparison, linking and integrated usage of these libraries very complex, if not impossible. The objective of ISO 16354:2013 is to categorize knowledge libraries and object libraries and to provide recommendations for the creation of such libraries. Libraries that are compliant with the guidelines of ISO 16354:2013 may be more easily linked to, or integrated with other libraries. The target audience of ISO 16354:2013 consists of developers of knowledge libraries, builders of translation software or interfaces between knowledge libraries, certifying bodies and builders of applications who must base their work on the knowledge libraries laid down.

ISO/TS 12911:2012 establishes a framework for providing specifications for the commissioning of building information modelling (BIM). It is applicable to any range of modelling of buildings and building-related facilities, from a portfolio of assets at a single site or multiple sites, to assets at a single small building and at any constituent system, subsystem, component or element. It is applicable to any asset type, including most infrastructure and public works, equipment and material. BIM processes are applicable across the entire life cycle of a portfolio, facility or component, which can span inception to end-of-use. The main user of the framework is the information manager, who utilizes the framework to assist in structuring an international-, national-project- or facility-level BIM guidance document. The framework can also be used for BIM guidance provided by application providers.
