BS 1192: Collaborative production of architectural, engineering and construction information. Code of practice
BS 1192 is the original information management standard, documenting the industry standards and best practice for the collaborative production of information (aka BIM).
This is largely based upon the standards, methods and procedures developed during the Heathrow Terminal 5 project. And remains the only standard to be fully tested on projects.
Its primary focus is the concepts and principles for the common data environment (CDE) and the transactions between container states within the CDE. It also contains the naming conventions for containers (folders, files and layers) within the CDE and standard codes for fields.
The way forward with ISO 19650
Since its first release in 2007, the standard had been amended to align with other standards. Therefore the lessons learnt from its implementation have been incorporated within its international version, ISO 19650-1 and ISO 19650-2.
As such, BS 1192 will be withdrawn following their publication in December 2018.
The British Standards Institution (2016) BS 1192:2007+A2:2016. Collaborative production of architectural, engineering and construction information. Code of practice, is available from: The BSI Shop . And the ISO 19650 standards are available from The BSI Shop.
The British Standards Institution
