Abstract Previous efforts by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) to develop a life-cycle building model have resulted in the definition of a core building information model that contains general information describing facility assets such as spaces and equipment. To describe how facility assets (i.e., components) function together, information about assemblies of assets and their connections must also be defined. The definitions of assets, assemblies, and connections for the various building-information domains are discipline-specific. The work documented here addresses the process flow and data exchange requirements for the design of electrical distribution systems in typical Army facilities. This ontology advances the state of the art by defining an Industry Foundation Class (IFC) Model View for electrical system design supporting end users in developing compliant BIM models suggesting potential areas of automation in electrical system design.
