BIM-MEP AUS launch new data management tool

Published: 12 April 2019

BIM-MEP AUS (BMA) is excited to announce a major step forward for managing project and asset data. The new BIM-MEP AUS shared parameter table contains a list of standardised parameters that have been carefully identified and refined through industry consultation and workshops. 

The shared parameter website is designed to serve three sets of users: 

  • Project and component specification authors; 
  • Revit modellers; and 
  • Data Managers and analysts working off the model. 

To cater for these groups, a range of filters are available to facilitate searches by:

  • Project Schedules: to help define and communicate project requirements; 
  • Groups: for easy selection of shared parameters; and
  • Data Type: to select parameters by discipline and type. 

Additional parameters will be progressively added as BIM-MEP AUS develop new component specifications and user proposals. The Shared Parameter text file for Revit will be updated with each version release of the BMA Revit MEP Template Add-in.

A simple User Guide is available to help first time users navigate the shared parameter web pages, while the Shared Parameter Guideline provides information on the rules we’ve used to name and manage shared parameters. 

The full Shared Parameter text file is available to subscribers for download.
