ANALYSIS OF METHODS OF REGULATION REQUIREMENTS TRANSLATION INTO MACHINE-READABLE FORMAT FOR VERIFICATION OF BUILDING INFORMATION MODELS
Currently, the project documentation is submitted for examination in the form of electronic documents that normally contain text and graphic information. Standards, which requirements the project documentation should meet during the examination, are published in electronic, but not machine-readable form. In recent years, specialists of the construction industry of Russian Federation fully realize the need of automated examination, which can be available if both sides of the process – design results and relevant standards – are presented in machine-readable form. This article reveals the results of existing approaches analysis how to transfer into the machine-readable form the regulation requirements for the building information model as a form of design results presentation for automated examination. The most promising of them is the language of knowledge representation based on the rules. There are criteria for machine readable presentation established and extended. The RuleML language is suggested as a solution, since it meets the criteria mentioned and is fixed in the regulation standards for information modeling. The RuleML based method of machine-readable requirements is acquired, which may in future be implemented within the transition to automated examination in the scope of Russia Federation and as a unified approach on the international level.
