3 Why an ontology?Having structured relationships amongst standardized information for a facility:Defines facility information exchanges and resulting BIM data in way usable by specialized service providersOrganizes facility life-cycle information with associated dataProvides basis for longevity to the information and improves feasiblity of multiple checkpoints for data integrityA BIM is great, but without it being standardized you could get locked into the limits of one vendors productsWe are encouraging the use of IFC based information exchanges which link us to the international community open standards.We need to have commonly organized information throughout the life-cycle so other software products outside our area of responsibility can find and read the dataWe will need to keep the data alive and usable for years – this is no small order and it can only be accomplished with a standardized approachOntolog Forum: Building Service Performance Project Kickoff - Michelle Raymond14 July, 2008
4 NBIMS Business Processes Interfaces to business processes at the core of NBIMSStandardizing commonly-recognized relationshipsIdentify information needing to flow through the modelMake information available to appropriate partiesFormalizing information flows will:Identify authoritative sources for informationEnsure that correct data is collectedData need only be entered once into the modelInterfaces between various sections of the National BIM Standard and business processes will be at the core of the Standard.Standardizing relationships will help to identify the information that needs to flow through the model and be made available to other parties as identified in the BIM Scope. Formalizing these information flows will help identify authoritative sources for information and help ensure that correct data is collected and need only be entered once into the model for all eventual re-use and modification.Ontolog Forum: Building Service Performance Project Kickoff - Michelle Raymond14 July, 2008
5 National BIM Standard Definition of BIM – buildingSMART Official Definition: A Building Information Model (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its life-cycle from inception onward.This is the agreed to “standard” definition for a BIM.Key points are:It is digital so a machine can read and analyze itIt includes the entire life-cycle from inception onwardIt supports collaborationIt is shared information and supports interoperabilityIt is an open standard and free* All text above is directly or paraphrased from the BIM_Slide_Show.Ontolog Forum: Building Service Performance Project Kickoff - Michelle Raymond14 July, 2008

A Distribution Element is routed to the building system with an oBIX payload.Having oBIX provide Building Information Model based knowledge in a form agreeable to all communities is an ongoing effort.Connect Facility Information and Emergency ManagementNBIMS VisionBIM Data ModelNBIMS ProcessoBIX OperationsData Exchange SupportoBIX Contracts and EDXL-DE headerEDXL–DE payloadsOther standards usage and supportBIMS into NIMSOntolog Forum: Building Service Performance Project Kickoff - Michelle Raymond14 July, 2008

14 Skywarn storm spotter network triggered Building Sensors and Actuators
15 Skywarn storm spotter network triggered Scenario: segment 3Weather spotterIn the same building there works a trained Skywarn weather spotter. His weather radio receives an alarm from the NWS indicating the severe thunderstorm watch. He heads to the roof weather lab and monitors the weather situation visually and by sensor instrumentation. He transmits a report indicating the sighting of a rotating wall cloud via his ham radio and a secure web service. With the Doppler images, sensor data and trained storm spotter reports, the National Weather Service has enough reliable information to initiate a tornado warning.

22 Management level technical: topic 3 Emergency Response InfrastructureA Tornado Path Prediction situation analysis tool defines the expected path and feeds information back into the emergency alerting system. Another situation analysis tool on the network, matches the geospatial information about the tornado’s path to a database of assets within the metro area. This information can be used to specialize messages to warn those in the path and alert emergency responders to the anticipated damage. Path prediction combined with geospatial and asset location information is an example of a Service that can be utilized within the Emergency Response Infrastructure.

24 CERT response Management level technical: topic 5 Scalable and adaptableFor an Incident Management System to be effective it must be scalable and adaptable. It must be capable of handling small incidents, like single events of wind damage at the beginning of the scenario. It must be able to handle separate events that tax the same resource pool. It must be able to deal with events separated through out the jurisdiction and cross jurisdiction. It must continue to evolve as the incident evolves.
25 Images: local area images Management level technical: topic 8Practices and policiesAt each stage of the command change the personnel roles and communications structure is managed via Minnesota Incident Management System (MnIMS) policies. Registries of individuals roles, skills and privileges matched against their personalized badging aid in rapid team structuring and information transfer of existing situation awareness. The lack of availability of interoperable communication devices for the CERT responders forces them to move the Incident Command Post to a busy and distracting location. Each Emergency Response ‘best-practice’ that isn’t followed, degrades the system. At least the adaptability of the system helps mitigate the degradation – some.
27 Scenario: segment 13Situation assessment determines resource needsIt is determined that removing debris by hand and with the limited available tools won’t get the trapped kids out fast enough from areas where the quality of air is unknown. Heavy equipment is needed.

Specification is to provide a set of standard formats for XML emergency messages. These Resource Messages are specifically designed as payloads of Emergency Data Exchange Language Distribution Element- (EDXL_DE)-routed messages. Together EDXL_DE and EDXL_RM are intended to expedite all activities associated with resources needed to respond and adapt to emergency incidents. The Resource Message is intended to be the payload or one of the payloads of the Distribution Element which contains it.The Resource Message is constrained to a manageable set of 16 Resource Message types related to the major communication purposes involved in the allocation of resources pertaining to preparation for, response to and remediation of emergency incidents.ExampleIn our scenario, a request is sent from incident command for appropriate heavy equipment. A software tool installed in the command unit notes that use of heavy equipment requires a licensed heavy equipment operator. Thus, the resource request message includes both equipment and equipment operator. The resource request message is formatted according to the Emergency Data Exchange Language – Resource Messaging (EDXL-RM) standard and is distributed via protocol accepted within the metropolitan area using SOAP and HTTP. Return of the equipment and operators will also be managed by the EDXL-RM standard and the associated resource management procedural methods.Report Resource DeploymentWe needsearch andrescuesupportSite EmergencyManagement SystemRequest InformationBroadcast
