The publication series “Common BIM Requirements 2012” is the result of a broad-based development project entitled COBIM. The need for these requirements arises from the rapidly growing use of building information modeling in the construction industry.
The viability of BIMs depends on the appropriateness and reliability of their contents. The quality assessment part goes into methods by which the BIM contents described in the other parts can be put into a format which is usable and meets the requirements. This part consists of self assessment done by the information producers, mostly designers, before delivering the information to other parties for use as initial information, of coordination of information during design, and of final check of the information model of certain phases. The part contains practical guidelines about how to avoid problem point and as well as check lists for each party for a more profound assessment.
