Model Support


The Model Support Group (MSG) is a team of international experts that builds and maintains buildingSMART data model standards. The MSG is primarily responsible for the development, maintenance, and integrity of the IFC schema and related specifications and tools.

The main objective of the MSG is to continuously develop, improve, and maintain the IFC schema and its documentation, as well as supporting its implementation in IFC compatible software. In addition, the MSG is responsible for coordinating Model View Definitions (MVDs) developed by interested stakeholders to fulfill specific business processes and need information exchanges.
