Participants in the workgroups are industry actors that share a genuine belief in a common digital language and want to be a part of moving the industry into the future with standards-based data templates and shared contexts.

The Define workgroups will discuss and agree on content for data dictionaries as well as help new users by sharing knowledge and assisting them in onboarding to Define and the development of the global common digital language.

As a participant in the workgroups, you can ensure that your input will be considered and reflected in the development of the Define tool to the best interest of the construction industry. All users of Define will have the opportunity to take part in one or more workgroups.
