BIM und IoT-basierte Rückverfolgbarkeit von Bauprodukten
Funders: Bundesinstitut für Bau-, Stadt- und Raumforschung im Bundesamt für Bauwesen und Raumordnung
Project term: 01/2023 – 06/2025
Building product traceability is of great importance for the sustainability of a building, especially when considering how the building will be treated at the end of its life cycle. Traceability makes it possible to understand and assess the origin and environmental impact of the building materials used. This is important to ensure that the building is constructed, operated and eventually deconstructed in a responsible and sustainable manner.
In industries such as healthcare, retail and automotive, concepts for data continuity and product traceability along the information supply chain are successfully established. These concepts have also been investigated in the construction and real estate industry for many years, but often break down during the transition to the end customer.
The research project "BIM und IoT-basierte Rückverfolgbarkeit" aims to develop a holistic concept for data continuity and traceability of building products. As part of the project, a labelling system is being developed to uniquely label and link building products and planned virtual objects. To facilitate the feasibility of building product traceability, the BIM (Building Information Modelling) method and the Internet of Things (IoT) will be used. The aim is to link the as-planned model with the digital building product twins (including manufacturer, identification, product property, logistics and event information) as a so-called as-built model.
The results will be validated in a real test environment and presented to the public using a demonstrator in the BIM laboratory of the University of Wuppertal.
