Railway Room

railroad-159321_1280

Purpose

The purpose of the Railway Room is to accelerate and exploit new digital opportunities for railway systems and create a comprehensive and applicable digital representation of the entire railway ecosystem that will support all phases of the lifecycle. This provides the basis of interoperable support systems, reduced complexity, secure and safe solutions and reduced costs for all stakeholders.

Steering Committee

The steering committee is led by representatives from ÖBB-Infrastruktur, SBB, Trafikverket, CRBIM, MINnD, SNCF, FTIA, and RFI.  The steering committee facilitates the project and activities of the room, including overseeing the IFC Rail workshops and online meetings of the domain groups and technical services, leading the room sessions at buildingSMART Summits, interacting with the Standards Committee and ensuring the buildingSMART Process is followed.
