Production Data Model
The Production Data Model is developed within
project "Design for Construction" of
STAR research program "
System engineering in construction" at VTT Building Technology
Need for open data exchange technology in construction management systems.
Conceptual data models for product-activity integration mechanisms are needed to
show how product models can be linked to production management systems.
Conceptual model for production management (site process).
The model consists of a core model and four related submodels. The core model
includes only perspective-independent properties while submodels may have some
perspective-dependent properties. Submodels are:
Constructability aspects are considered in each submodel.
- cost estimation data model
- scheduling data model
- purchases planning data model
- production resources data model
Production Data Model is intended to be used either as:
A basis for implementation of integrated software (e.g. in PICTOR project)
A reference model when defining more detailed conceptual production models
into specific application areas
A basis for nomenclature in teaching and developing new production
A conceptual schema in data exchange standardization.
Impact on process lead time
Indirect through common concepts
Indirectly via applications that use production data model
