Product data definition

This draft technical specification is currently being used as the base document for a new PAS standard - PAS 1192-7 Construction product information – Specification for defining, sharing and maintaining structured digital construction product information - by which it will be replaced.  It is intended to provide a consistent methodology for the definition, creation, management and sharing of product information through the life cycle of an asset based on the purpose of that information, and who the information is to be used by.  This draft  does not constitute a standard that has been developed through a recognised and independent consensus-building process, and once PAS 1192-7 is ready for public comment later in 2017, it will be removed from circulation.

Exemplar Process Maps

These exemplar process maps illustrate how defined and mapped information requirements ensure that organisations procure and are supplied with verified, appropriately controlled information to the right Level of Definition. Information requirements can also inform governance gateways (decisions points where key questions need to be answered to enable approval). These questions are referred to as Plain Language Questions (PLQ).
