Reference frameworks

A reference framework serves as a guideline for users applying the COINS system in a specific area, such as ‘functional specification’ or ‘quantity estimates’. The reference framework can also contain a supplement to the CBIM Building Information Model.

Reference frameworks may be developed to serve as industry standards, or in aid of an organisation or a specific project.

Reference frameworks intended as industry standards will be made available via this page. The following list provides an overview of scheduled issues. The issues in ‘bold' are regarded as ‘high priority’. Two reference frameworks are already available and can be accessed via the hyperlinks.

  1. Functional specification (available)
  2. Preparing a Design Dossier
  3. Transferring building information
  4. Object data management
  5. Preparing the object structure
  6. Testing a functional spatial schedule of requirements
  7. Making quantity estimates (available)
  8. Applying a library
  9. Using construction sector libraries
  10. Managing a building configuration


The reference frameworks designated as high priority are described briefly in the section below.

1. Functional Specification Reference Framework (available)


This reference framework serves as a guideline for application of the COINS system during functional specification. The reference framework also serves as a supplement to the COINS Building Information Model (CBIM). The guideline takes the form of an example: the ‘Harinxma canal’ case. The example has a twofold purpose:

  • Explaining how a basic specified question can be developed into a more elaborated functional decomposition;
  • Explaining the procedure for methodical verification on the basis of a recorded functional specification.

The reference framework also explains how to package the functional specification in a COINS Container in order to facilitate transfer to a construction partner.


4. Reference framework for object data management


This reference framework serves as a guideline for application of the COINS system during building information management. The reference framework also serves as a supplement to the COINS Building Information Model (CBIM). The guideline takes the form of an example. This example has the following purpose:

  • Explaining how information from various partners can be compiled into a single Building Information Model.
  • Explaining how to set up an edit and version management structure that will allow users to determine ‘who edited what at which moment and why’;
  • Explaining how to apply baselines.


5. Reference framework for preparing an object structure


This reference framework serves as a guideline for users applying the COINS system to set up an object structure for a structure. The guideline takes the form of various examples. The guideline has the following purpose:

  • Explaining how an object structure can be designed to take into account aspects such as contracting, disciplines, responsibilities, etc.;
  • Explaining how an object structure can be designed to take into account aspects such as design, realisation and management and maintenance;
  • Explaining how to make agreements with project partners regarding the application of a common object structure;
  • Explaining how an object structure can be packaged in a COINS Container in order to facilitate transfer to another construction process partner.


7. Quantity Estimates Reference Framework (available)


This reference framework serves as a guideline for users applying the COINS system to conduct a quantity estimate of structure components. The reference framework also serves as a supplement to the COINS Building Information Model (CBIM). The guideline takes the form of an example and has the following purpose: explaining how to organise the quantity estimate process.


8. Reference framework for library use


This reference framework serves as a guideline for users applying the COINS system to set up and use a library for components during a construction project. The guideline takes the form of various examples and has the following purpose:

  • Explaining how a library can be applied to reuse information;
  • Explaining how to set up a library;
  • Explaining how to apply classification and type descriptions;
  • Explaining how to ensure alignment with an industry library (ETM, Cheobs, IFD).


10. Reference framework for managing a structure configuration


This reference framework serves as a guideline for users applying the COINS system to manage a structure configuration. The guideline takes the form of various examples and has the following purpose:

  • Explaining how to record the structure in a BIM;
  • Explaining how to apply baselines;
  • Explaining how the configuration is managed during edits;
  • Explaining how as-built information is processed in the BIM;
  • Explaining how to prepare an information guideline in order to ensure that as-built information is compatible with the BIM.
