COBie Task Group

COBie Task Group (CTG)

The mission of the Alliance Construction-to-Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) Task Group (CTG) is to exercise stewardship of the Construction‐to‐Operations Information Exchange Model View Definition (MVD) and data schema. The Task Group fulfills this mission in three ways:

  • ongoing technical development of COBie to meet AECOO industry needs
  • supporting the process of incorporating successive versions of COBie in the National BIM Standard – United States® (NBIMS-US™)
  • promoting the adoption and implementation of COBie by the building industry

The CTG will develop will develop and maintain an annual operational plan which outlines the activities and specific projects to be pursued within the next year to include quarterly milestones with deliverables along with any resources required to achieve the CTG goals.
