Using the published data templates in practice
By getting access to ready-to-use data templates, construction industry stakeholders from across the value chain, can apply them in their own organisations, taking substantial leaps towards standards-based management of their data, thus ensuring interoperability and repeatability. By implementing a standardised data structure, your data can be shared and reused everywhere.
The data templates of the construction products are available for viewing after initial registration. If you would like to purchase the templates for professional use, please follow the step-by-step guide.
For the development of data templates on a national or organisational level, workgroups have been established within the Define community. Their tasks include taking national or organisational needs and regulations into account when developing data templates.
Currently, workgroups are being established by industry actors in Norway and UK to continue the work on the data dictionaries. In Denmark this work is driven by Molio, in The Czech Republic by CAS, and by CEI-Bois for the European woodworking industry.
