Multi-model-based Access Control in Construction Projects

  title={Multi-model-based Access Control in Construction Projects},
  author={Frank Hilbert and Raimar J. Scherer and Larissa Araujo},
During the execution of large scale construction projects performed by Virtual Organizations (VO), relatively complex technical models have to be exchanged between the VO members. For linking the trade and transfer of these models, a so-called multi-model container format was developed. Considering the different skills and tasks of the involved partners, it is not necessary for them to know all the models in every technical detailing. Furthermore, the model size can lead to a delay in…

Context-Specific Multi-Model-Template Retrieval
An approach is obtained, which allows simplified handling and reuse of complex project-, product- and collaboration-models in order to support the collaboration within a virtual Organization in Construction Industry.
Building Information Modelling in 2012: Research Challenges, Contributions, Opportunities
This working paper provides an annotated bibliography of studies on Building Information Modelling (BIM), which were published in English in the first six months of 2012. It discusses the areas of
Virtuelle Organisation für Bauprojekte
Die Anzahl und raumliche Verteilung der Projektbeteiligten erschwert die Gestaltung der Projektkollaboration, da sowohl BIM Daten als auch Informationen uber die Projektpartner und ihre


Fine-grained information access in Virtual Organisations
An approach for the realization of fine-grained context-aware access management, mapping the required dynamic VO behaviour in an ICT environment using a generic platform ontology acting as context model that describes the actors, resources and processes of a VO.
A framework for multi-model collaboration and visualisation
A new framework for the integration of model collaboration and visualisation tools is proposed, as enabler for further research and development work in the area of model-based construction information management.
On reference models for collaborative networked organizations
The ARCON reference modeling approach is proposed considering multiple modeling perspectives: environment characteristics, life cycle, and modeling intent, which takes into account contributions from previous works on enterprise modeling and extends them to the context of collaborative networked organizations.
The realized reference implementation builds upon the use of an open IFC toolset developed at the University of Weimar and HOCHTIEF and a formal model subset definition schema (GMSD) and supporting tools initially developed by the first two authors.

The paper describes the ABAC model in terms of its authorization architecture and policy formulation, and makes a detailed comparison between ABAC and traditional role-based models, which clearly shows the advantages of ABAC.
Context sensitivity in role-based access control
This paper describes an extended role-based access control model, which makes RBAC sensitive to the context of an attempted operation, by introducing the notions of role context and context filters.
Towards a Fine-Grained Access Control Model and Mechanisms for Semantic Databases
This paper presents a fine-grained access control model specifically tailored to semantic models that can be enforced at the level of both the model's concepts and the concepts' instances by means of a query rewriting strategy.
Building Product Models: Computer Environments, Supporting Design and Construction
From the Publisher: Building Product Models thoroughly presents the concepts,technology, and methods now used to work out what will become the building product model - a new, digital representation
Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): Features and Motivations
The purpose of this paper is to provide additional insight as to the motivations and functionality that might go behind the official RBAC name.
Supporting attribute-based access control with ontologies
This paper presents an approach based on an extension of the established XACML standard that simplifies the policies by providing an ontology-based attribute management facility.
