Abstract

This research aims to describe an implementation approach for a translator of KBimCode as a part of a BIM-enabled automated design rule checking system. KBimCode is an explicit and computer-readable form written in a scripting language to represent Korea Building Act sentences. KBimCode separates the rule-making process that conventionally dependent on rule-checking software. Based on the approach, KBimCode implemented with its own logic rule components and has been managed with the database. On the other hand, there are several rule-checking software executed with their own rule set. Translating natural language rules into the rule set of each software and translating a rule of specific software into others require a lot of manual effort. The manual translation also hinders interoperability between rule checking software. We address the problem with developing the KBimCode translator for each rule checking software. In this research, we focused on translating KBimCode into an executable code of specific rule checking software, named KBimAssess. KBimCode translator will integrate the rule-making and rule-checking process, which means various stakeholders, even who are not familiar with programming, can easily conduct BIM-enabled rule checking by utilizing KBimCode. Furthermore, the implementation of KBimCode translator is expected to contribute to the enhancement of interoperability between various rule-checking applications.
