Classification, an introduction
The 54-page guide offers an introduction to classification, that is, ‘what things are called, and how those names are arranged and structured’, or ‘the act or process of dividing things into groups according to their type.’
- Production information.
- Schedules of rates / quantities.
- Information management systems.
- Operation and maintenance information.
The guide considers classification with particular reference to building services. It explains what classification is, why it is needed, how it is used, and how to recognise particular classification systems.
The guide suggests that ‘Having a vast amount of data about a project or asset can be a very powerful resource. However, it is only as useful as its ability to be retrieved when needed and this is the role of classification.’
