buildingSMART - Use Case Management (UCM)

The use case management offers a guided process for developing an information delivery manual (IDM) based on ISO 29481-1: 2016. The service ensures a common language and a uniform understanding of BIM / VDC applications (use cases) within the entire construction and real estate industry. Use cases help both the customer and the contractor in defining the BIM goals of a project. In a subsequent step, the specific information exchange requirements are created. The use cases describe the current best practice and follows an openBIM approach.


All results of the project groups are published on the UCM website
