The BIM Excellence Initiative is built upon a clear structure for harvesting and organising knowledge. This 'Knowledge Structure' is composed of five pillars (referred to as Knowledge Sets) that support all the work delivered through BIMe Initiative Projects. The below image is a summary of the five Knowledge Sets and their many components:
The conceptual structures that enable the generation of tools, templates and similar deliverables of practical use.
Foundations include Frameworks, Models, Taxonomies, Classifications, Terms, and all types of Ontologies.
The methods and activity maps enabling the consistent capture, organisation, and sharing of knowledge, information, and data.
