The Object Management in MasterConcept follows the ISO/IEC standard Principles for Structure Handling in order to structure plant objects by different perspectives and functions in a smart and simple way. It was first implemented in MasterConcept 1993 and today the development has gone further with this latest standard in MasterConcept.
Today it’s used for buildings and all its building functions. The new standard is labeled as IEC/ISO 81346-12. The last digits (-12) refers to the BIM area. The new standard have examples how to structure the data. There are two main areas how to structure a building.
Products of construction works are construction units, by which a building is assembled, e.g. foundation, wall, column, ceiling, facade, door, window.
Products of building services are units such as technical plants, plant sections, components, and other equipment used for realizing functions of building services.
