The mission of the NIBS Building Information Management (BIM) Council Construction-to-Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) Workgroup (CWG) is to exercise stewardship of the Construction‐to‐Operations Information Exchange Model View Definition (MVD) and data schema. The Workgroup 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 CWG 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 CWG goals.
