How to share manufacturer product data in 2017

  1. 1. @coBuilderUK Data requirements and the role of the manufacturer Nick Tune, CEO coBuilder UK
  2. 2. @coBuilderUK About me CEO of coBuilder UK Former BRE Group Director - Digital & Data UKBIM Alliance Exec Former Board member of buildingSMART International & UK
  3. 3. @coBuilderUK 18 YEARS IN THE BUSINESS - We know the European construction industry very well The product info hub of the Norwegian market (5000+ customers); Over 2.5 million products in our systems; Experts in handling EU regulations such as CPR, REACH, ROHS; Members of CEN/TC 442 and ISO/TC 49 committees Member of buildingSMART International Plugins for
  4. 4. @coBuilderUK Data is the raw material of the 21st century D A T A
  5. 5. @coBuilderUK So what information do you need?
  6. 6. @coBuilderUK So what information do we get?
  7. 7. @coBuilderUK Product Information today
  8. 8. @coBuilderUK What data do your customers want/need?? They want COBie They want BIM Objects They want PDFs They want just specific data sets that are relevant to them They want my data in different formats that I cannot provide right now My clients don't come to me for information about my products
  9. 9. @coBuilderUK So are required/suggested COBie properties enough/too much? Type
  10. 10. @coBuilderUK Component
  11. 11. @coBuilderUK But what about performance properties, are these needed?
  12. 12. @coBuilderUK MOJ have asked for COBie plus +
  13. 13. @coBuilderUK The Plan Language Question - PLQ I want to run my building with a 10% reduction in energy consumption What data do I need to do this? From which sources (boiler, lighting, pumps etc) So what data do I need from my boiler to manage it and reduce its use or improve it efficiency?
  14. 14. @coBuilderUK 2 Ways of determining the data you want 1 – PLQs – What data do I need to answer a specific question. The problem, you would need hundred if not thousands of questions per project and often you don’t know all the questions you need. 2 – Make an educated guess of the data you think you will need e.g. I think the client will want this data – The FM will need these COBie properties and the contractor/client and FM will need these product performance properties – U Value, Fire Rating etc. Do we need a combination of both?
  15. 15. @coBuilderUK So how should the data about products be presented? • The Product Data Template
  16. 16. @coBuilderUK Manufacturers, SET YOUR DATA FREE!
  17. 17. @coBuilderUK Product data – where does it come from ? Construction Products Regulation (CPR) CEN standards Low Voltage Directive (LVD) CENELEC standards ISO standards Environmental Product Declaration Other REACH, Machinery Directive, ++ Market needs BREEAM, Color codes, Warranty policies etc.
  18. 18. @coBuilderUK What should be in the PDT and what format? CEN 442 WG4 Product Data Should be based on hEN and IFC
  19. 19. @coBuilderUK Product Data Templates (PDT) Moving from PDFs to data The way to make you data available in machine readable formats In a PDT a manufacturer could structure: Asset Information Requirements (FM, COBie ++) Environmental Product Data (EPD) Data on Chemicals (SDS information) Specifications (performance, geometry etc.) What data is needed at different project stages (RIBA, LOD etc.)
  20. 20. @coBuilderUK The Development of the PDT - LEXiCON
  21. 21. @coBuilderUK PLQs and PDTs We have the PLQs, we have determined the products we want data for and and we have selected the data that we believe we need for each product. We now have our project PDTs.
  22. 22. @coBuilderUK PDS
  23. 23. @coBuilderUK Interoperability
  24. 24. @coBuilderUK Tata Example
  25. 25. @coBuilderUK Tata Example
  26. 26. @coBuilderUK Interoperability
  27. 27. @coBuilderUK Mapping between hEN and IFC
  28. 28. @coBuilderUK What if the manufacturer can’t give you the data?
  29. 29. @coBuilderUK Can I just use a BIM Object? Ask the questions •Will it definitely be the product that is installed? •Does it have the data that has been asked for and in the format required? •What level of detail is needed? •Is the object too geometrically rich?
  30. 30. @coBuilderUK The Knauf Insulation Case Study Download at: “We have been looking for a future-proof solution, which goes beyond the 3D objects capabilities and will help us meet the demands of our organisation and our partners, without the need for significant software implementation and investment. We have found this solution with coBuilder." - Stephen Smith, Marketing Manager Knauf Insulation UK.
  31. 31. @coBuilderUK Are you the source of your information?

  34. 34. @coBuilderUK Ensure Availability
  35. 35. @coBuilderUK Is your data fit for purpose? My product data is created according to national and international standards for construction products. My product is not under the scope of any standards My product data is created under a European Technical Assessment All my data related to standards is available to my clients I often get request for product properties that I don't have at hand at the moment
  36. 36. @coBuilderUK How do you translate & localise your data to the different markets you target? I employ a team of translators My local representatives handle data translations I don't translate/localise my data I use a software for automatic translations
  37. 37. @coBuilderUK coBuilder International Develops product type templates based on studies in legislation and national standards in various countries Internationalised product data based on buildingSMART Data Dictionary Provides quality translation services for product data in over 15 languages Our work is supported by the following International and European associations: European Construction Industry Federation (FIEC) International Union of Painting Contractors (UNIEP) International Union of the Associations of Heating Ventilating and Air- Conditioning Contractors and International Union of Roofing and Plumbing (GCI-UICP)
  38. 38. @coBuilderUK What new distribution chanells have you introduced to your business in the last year? I now offer my product data online (website/e-commerce system) I offer my product data through merchants and wholesalers I offer customised data offers to contractors and subcontractors I now offer my products as BIM objects My products are accessible through software products my customers use (Revit, ARCHICAD etc.)
