Data dictionary

Digitisation for construction product manufacturers: a plain language guide, published by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2021 states: ‘A data dictionary is a dictionary of properties relating to construction products and methods, standardising the terms and enabling machine reading of properties. Effective data dictionaries are compiled by a process of agreement with industry.’
