A team of 16 BIMForum members has developed and released a new specification for BIM. The level of development specification, or LOD, explains "how detailed model elements for the different building systems are, or need to be." BIMForum has made the standard available for all to use as a references standard. "We want everyone to have the same understanding about how much information should go into each element of a building model, and for what uses those models are suitable," said Dmitri Alferieff, director of the BIMForum.
