While recognizing that an IDDS comprises three
major aspects: people; process; and technology, the

Limited forms of integration are offered through
BIM-based approaches offered by major CAD ven-
dors. These approaches are typically vendor specific
and tie together a small number of design tools (in
comparison to the thousands available in the mar-
