To reach international consensus and to succeed in creating an internationally standardized interface we now reach out to the larger community to engage in an expert panel to review the deliverables of the project and support standard finalization.

In September 2018 the first Expert Panel Meeting was held, and the IDM was presented for review. Now the MVD is ready to be reviewed and we would like to invite both software and industry experts to join in and give their feedback to the project.

Preliminary agenda
IDM – Review process - summary, comments and feedback.
MVD – Presentation of the MVD, discussion and further process
(The documents will be available to all the participants two weeks in advance, 5th of December 2018.)

Who are we looking for
For a broad international consensus and high quality of the final product, we want to engage domain experts with experience knowledge on precast automation software systems and interfaces, especially Unitechnik CAD-CAM Interface and PXML, and knowledge on PCI-001 MVD.

Both members and non-members of buildingSMART can participate in the expert panel.
