The mission of the NIBS Building Information Management (BIM) Council Product Data Requirements Workgroup (PDR-WG) is to define the desired product performance and sustainability data elements, the schema for product-specific attributes extending the Construction‐to‐Operations Information Exchange Model View Definition (MVD), and data schema into performance and sustainability data required for product selection, commissioning, maintenance, and operations.


The Workgroup fulfills this mission in multiple ways:

  • Development of product-specific data tables to meet owner needs for product selection, commissioning, maintenance, and operations.
  • Promote the adoption and implementation of standard data tables by product manufacturers, product vendors, designers, constructors, owners, and software firms supporting the building industry.
  • Support the process of incorporating product data tables into the National BIM Standard – United States® (NBIMS-US™) and coordinating with the standards of buildingSMART International.
  • Supporting research validating the benefits of using the standard data and schema.
