ACI 131.1 provides a framework for enabling efficient interdisciplinary coordination and collaboration for exchanging information in both model and nonmodel forms. This report develops a process model that identifies the typical workflows during engineering design, planning, and site production of cast-in-place (CIP) reinforced concrete. It identifies when information is shared between disciplines at different stages of CIP concrete projects. The process model relates the different disciplines that deliver the project, the different phases of the project, and the information exchanges that take place. This report will be used by building information modeling (BIM) users and software developers as a framework for developing shareable model views for visualization and coordination of production and placement of reinforced concrete.
