Product information is going digital, and FIS has been working with Government through BIM4FitOut and BIM4M2 to understand how products in the finishes and interiors sector can be described using the Product Data Definition document.

The Product Data Definition document, published by the UK Government’s BIM Task Group in April, defined a methodology to enable information to be requested and provided in common, plain language terms. LEXiCON is the implementation of this methodology. Steve Thompson, Vice Chair of BIM4M2 explains more here.

FIS has also been working with its Special Interest Forums to produce Product Data Templates (PDTs) for the Partitioning, Ceilings and Operable Wall sectors, and will continue to work with other federations and product manufacturers to develop more PDTs.
