The Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) exchange schema is too generic to capture the full semantic meaning needed for direct use by different construction project stakeholders' BIM tools. Although BIM standards that prescribe model view definitions (MVD) for domain-specific exchanges are under development, insufficient semantic definition of exchanges prevents achievement of the full… CONTINUE READING
