Manufacturers produce a significant part of the information required to bring about a safer construction industry; but this information is currently not structured or shared in a consistent way.
If industry is to meet the challenges of a digital future, avoid a race to the bottom and respond to the requirements of a new building safety regulatory system, we need manufacturers to structure and share their data safely.
This IET project, which is supported by the UK BIM Alliance, is producing a Plain Language Guide to Product Data for Manufacturers in the UK and Europe.
The guide aims to help decision makers in manufacturing identify:
- Why structured data is important.
- How to avoid poor investment decisions.
- How to protect their future with a step-by-step process to set priorities and implement information management across the supply chain for their products.
The editorial team includes two UK BIM Alliance Ambassadors, Rick Hartwig and Patricia Massey.
