ABSTRACT
The definition and implementation of user views is likely to be a major factor in the success of
the ISO-STEP standard for computer-based representation of building components and their
inter-connection. The development of a method for describing user views to a particular model
is also likely to increase the usage of existing design tools. Currently, the arcane languages and
the detailed knowledge required of the physics and terminology of the specific domains of many
of these tools limit their use by designers. This paper addresses these issues by describing a
system that can present information from a base computer model of a building to a given user.
The language and level of detail of the system are directed at the needs and understanding of the
user. This system allows multiple concurrent views to the base model, each view tailored to a
particular discipline (eg, architect, structural engineer, thermal engineer, etc) and further tailored
to meet the specific needs of the particular user in terms of understanding of the various
