Information container breakdown structure
An information container breakdown structure ‘…is a pre-determined, detailed way to define manageable units of information across the project and/or delivery team. The evolving project information model can be complex and will comprise many information containers. Defining the information container breakdown structure therefore enables multiple appointed parties to create information simultaneously within different containers in an efficient manner. This eases information exchanges whilst at the same time removing the risk of them overwriting each other’s information.’
