LEXiCON, a Construction Innovation Hub project which is working on developing a common language for construction projects to make it easy to compare and categorise information, has released its second phase report.
A key part of the new report sets out how users can create and edit machine-readable Product Data Templates (PDTs) that are accurate, relevant, and up to date with current standards. PDTs are a useful tool for those operating in the architectural ironmongery sector because they help with the creation of Product Data Sheets.
In addition, LEXiCON Phase Two offers guidance on bringing the right groups of people together as a Relevant Authority to collaborate and to further boost the accuracy of product information.
GAI technical manager Douglas Masterson is part of the Working Group responsible for the LEXiCON project, and assisted with the creation of the latest report.
