Industry Foundation Classes
Industry Foundation Classes (IFCs) are data
elements that represent the parts of buildings, or elements of the process, and contain the relevant information about those parts. IFCs are used by computer applications
to assemble a computer readable model of the facility that contains all the information of the parts and their relationships to be shared among project participants. The project model constitutes an object-oriented database of the information shared among project participants and continues to grow as the project goes through design, construction and operation.
