  5. 5. On July 14, 2008 the ONUMA Planning System (OPS) added new user interfaces to add and edit COBIE data directly in OPS. This was done in preparation for the July 23, 2008, buildingSMART alliance / US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Demonstration. The COBIE Challenge on March 11, 2009 will expand the capabilities of OPS to support COBIE throughout the life-cycle of projects.

  23. 23. Pasadena, CA, Feb. 10, 2009 - ONUMA, Inc. a leader in software and architecture for the building industry will be participating for the 2nd time in the COBIE Challenge at the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference in Baltimore Maryland on March 11, 2009. Construction-Operations Building Information Exchange (COBIE) is an open-standard format for the exchange of the equipment lists, replacement parts, warranties, test reports, preventative maintenance schedules and other information currently delivered to facility managers. The COBIE Challenge a project of the buildingSMART alliance, has invited ONUMA, Inc. and other vendors to demonstrate live in front of an audience how their tools support COBIE. The ONUMA Planning System (OPS) supports COBIE input and output by allowing stakeholders to view and analyze data directly on the web and through web services. OPS manages COBIE data on the fly, allowing for real time collaboration on projects. OPS is also linked through open standards exchanges to Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allowing for data to be geospatially located within a building. OPS exports and imports COBIE data through XML and through web-services. The OPS interface is simple and accessible to many levels of users without the need to install software. OPS will expand on the previous COBIE output capability to import COBIE files in native Excel format with multiple tabs. The result inside OPS is a BIM populated with COBIE data that can be further edited and exported back to COBIE or other BIM and GIS applications. OPS is currently being used to manage the life-cycle data of commercial and institutional projects with COBIE standards. About Onuma Inc. ONUMA, Inc. the creator of the ONUMA Planning System (OPS) and BIMStorms, is based in Pasadena, CA. The company is a unique mixture of architects that are computer programmers, architects, and computer scientists, revolutionizing the way the building industry communicates using web enabled BIM tools. OPS is a BIM Server and editor that is built on open standards exchanges of the internet, using Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) for BIM,along with KML and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards to support Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). About the buildingSMART alliance The buildingSMART alliance operates within the independent non-profit National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS). This public/private initiative expands on goals of the North American Chapter of the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI-NA), whose Industry Foundation Classes (IFCs) have initiated open standards for national and international links among industry players. It provides developers and users of Building Information Models (BIMs), the digital tools that are increasingly helping to share highly accurate information throughout a facility's life cycle.
