Level of Information Need: Less is More
08 Oct 2020
Digital Construction Hub
The definition of the right information to be produced and exchanged is a key activity for each project. In the past, metrics were set (from 1 to 7) and those numbers were used to indicate the geometrical representation and the alphanumerical requirements. But those metrics were too generic and could not be used to automatically check if information deliverables fulfilled the appointing party’s needs in terms of quality, quantity and granularity. In addition, the definitions of those metrics were dissociated from the purpose of the information, contributing to poor information management and under/overproduction of deliverables. In this presentation, the Level of Information Need framework introduced in the ISO19650-1 will be presented with reference to case studies. The speaker will present what it new, when it should be defined, by whom and how. The audience will gain deep knowledge in the topic and will learn how to implement in in real projects. The speaker is the Lead author of the upcoming European standard EN17412-1 on level of Information Need and the audience will have the possibility to ask questions during the Q&A session.
