Production and management of Data Dictionaries: BEAMA's approach to PDTs
BEAMA is transitioning to new PDT development processes for our members’ products in line with the recently published PAS 14191. PAS 14191 sets out how to establish a governance structure to manage a data dictionary and these are described. This is necessary to provide clear responsibility for product groups and make sure that all parts of the industry have had a chance to contribute to their development, an essential step to ensure the widescale adoption of the resultant PDTs.
BEAMA is planning to deal with products in its scope and will liaise with other industry associations to coordinate and align the developments of data dictionaries for other product groups. Through this collective effort we can create a single environment for the users of construction product data who should be able to readily find the product data they need.
