It is recommended that students complete the BIM Basics Training course prior to taking this course.
The Components of the Common Data Environment course explains the basic principles of the Common Data Environment identified as a requirement for information Management in ISO 19650. Based on the concept developed under the AVANTI process and first incorporated into British Standard 1192:2007 the principles of the concept of the CDE have been proven to reduce waste and facilitate the reduction in waste and effort in finding information as well as facilitating trust in the information available.
In the 2006 Avanti Standards, Methods and Procedure the following quote was provide:
“To change or ‘simplify’ any element of the procedure – without an understanding of the impact of that change – puts the improvements at risk, and at best will only maintain the ‘status quo’.”
The CDE is now an integral part of the ISO 19650 process. However many of the simplifications applied have lost that original understanding, The aim of this course is to rectify this understanding to facilitate the improvements necessary to improve the way information is delivered.
The course is broken down into four lesson, which are:
Lesson 1 Information Environments:
This lesson provides an overview of the functional sections of the Common Data Environment as well as the identified gateways;
Lesson 2 The Expanded CDE Process:
This lessons explains the principles of the expanded Common Data Environment process;
Lesson 3 Nomenclature and Metadata:
This lessons explains the implementation requirements of both nomenclature and metadata; and
Lesson 4 Functional Requirements:
This lesson provides an overview of the functional requirements of the Common Data Environment.
- Describe the purpose of the Common Data Environment
- Express the CDE functional sections and gateways
- Recognize the requirements of the expanded CDE process
- Recognize the requirements for standardised nomenclature
- Recognize the requirements for project and document metadata
- Recognize the functional requirements of the solutions that support the CDE process.
