→ Fair Criticisms of IFC

Tim Davies escribe en Constructing Data:

IFC is the best schema for exchanging construction and facilities management project information.

There are many unfair criticisms of Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) files when often it is bad software implementation, bad setup, or bad model management at fault.

But that’s doesn’t absolve IFC from any criticism at all.

This article is based on my day-to-day experience of creating, exporting, importing, developing, and managing data with IFC and is where I believe it is fair to say IFC has got it wrong.

Tres ideas básicas que comparto en buena medida:

  • Nomenclatura confusa
  • Documentación poco user friendly
  • Tecnología con una curva de aprendizaje demasiado elevada, tanto para desarrolladores como para usuarios
