Industry Foundation Models
The Industry Foundation Models (IFM’s) purpose is to support design level specification and scheduling, with the IFM’s containing a reduced schema to provide minimum data needed to support early design. The intent then is for these IFM’s to be exchanged for Manufacturer specific content as the project progresses, which provide much more specific geometry, performance and product data for construction scheduling, procurement and life cycle management.
The IFM Content has been developed using the Autodesk Australian Content pack as a base starting point. The content has then been renamed according to BIM-MEPAUS naming standards and values set to match the BIM-MEPAUS Shared Parameters.
