The following table provides the analysis conducted to evaluate software manufacturer compliance with the Spatial Compliance Information Exchange (SCIE) conducted for the 23-25 July 2008 Building Information Modeling Information Exchange Demonstration.
The SCIE Requirements include the provision of a COBIE file that uses space classification based on OmniClass Table 13 "Spaces by Function" to provide a user-neutral format for the exchange of spatial compliance information. At this time the harmonized BOMA / IFMA space classification standard (ASTM E1836-08 Standard Practice for Building Floor Area Measurements) is the default COBIE and SCIE requirement. Owners must identify specific zoning requirements in SCIE specifications, which were not tested during the July 2008 demonstration.
