Manufacturer or Supplier

As a manufacturer or supplier you will be a provider of services or goods either directly to the employer or to another supplier in a supply chain.

You will be primarily involved in the delivery of component parts of a project. BIM Level 2 facilitates a consistent process for sharing product data across the project life-cycle. It can be used to document product data to support the specification, selection and replacement process. The Level 2 process allows well-structured digital information to be created and exchanged in an open way using a consistent schema. The standard information structure offered through BIM Level 2 ensures that the information about an object or manufactured component has meaningful use and the level of definition appropriate to its purpose at that stage.

Listed below are the standards that will assist a Manufacturer or Supplier to work at BIM Level 2 throughout the project life-cycle.
