BIM-MEPAUS Product Data Templates and their daughter component data templates have been developed to provide simple to use structured data sets in a Microsoft Excel® format to support industry engagement in efficient and reliable digital data workflows through each phase of the project delivery and transition to operation.
Product data templates contain the shared parameters nominated in the Product Specifications including identity data, performance and quality data, manufacturer product data, commissioning data and completion data.
Component Data Templates comprise a reduced set of data from the Product Data Template and comprise a design data schedule and a procurement data schedule. The design data Schedule documents those requirements needed to specify the quality and performance requirements whilst the procurement schedule has greater detail and schedules the key data that is typically resolved through the procurement process and needed for technical approvals and equipment procurement and commissioning.
It is expected that data contained in the templates will ultimately be exchanged with databases where it can be used for a wide range of purposes.
