Five Work Groups have been defined:
- GT1 – Strategy
- GT2 – People
- GT3 – Processes
- GT4 – Technology
- GT5 – International
Composition of the Work Groups
The composition of the Work Groups is open, with all organisations or people who are considered able to contribute to the subjects defined in each of the groups being able to incorporate themselves into each of them.
Assignment to each of the Groups is carried out through writing to the Commission’s secretary (ComisionBIM@ineco.com).
Each of the work groups will be organised as follows:
- Coordination: each of the Work Groups will have a Coordinator in charge of the tasks of coordinating the Group and driving it forward.
- Secretary: support for coordination works.
- Work Subgroups: given that the general subject of each of the Groups is very wide, specific Work Subgroups will be established to develop tasks or specific subjects. Each of these Subgroups will have a head who will also be head of the task assigned. In order to ensure the operability of these subgroups, the intention is for them to have no more than five or six people; although there may be some exceptions in cases in which the work volume requires more people.
Insofar as possible and considering the dimension of each of the Work Groups, communication will be carried out online, with general meetings of the Groups being held only once a year, coming together in the es.BIM Conferences.
The activities of the Work Groups will be established in the Commission or, where applicable, in the Technical Committee.
Three possible channels will be established to transfer to the Commission the activities to be carried out in the work groups:
- Proposals by the Technical Committee.
- Proposals arising within the organisations and bodies represented in the Commission and transferred to be considered by the Technical Committee.
- Proposals arising in the Work Groups themselves and, likewise, transferred to the Technical Committee.
All proposals will be evaluated by the Technical Committee before they are transferred to the Commission to be approved.
Once approved, the tasks are assigned to members of the group who will form subgroups that will have their own head. These tasks will generate a series of deliverables that will be scheduled.
The Subgroup work operations will be established within these Subgroups, becoming established in accordance with their components, both the distribution of the work and the communication between their members.
In general, the documentation generated by the subgroups will be circulated between all members of the Group to which it belongs noting comments before it is transferred to the Technical Committee.
Creation of new groups
In principle, the number of work groups has been limited to these initial five in which all the tasks to be carried out will be performed.
The creation of new groups may be proposed to the Commission to be studied when either of the following circumstances occur:
- The subject to be developed in the new group is independent of the subjects being carried out or planned in the existing groups
- The volume of work assigned to a group is greater than the group’s capacity and the incorporation of new tasks will slow down or hinder the existing work
In any case, the establishing of new Groups will require the approval of the Commission.
