Area, Rooms, Wall


Unambiguous area specification is required in a digital version of an asset model. The environment at a location regulates parts of the product specification for a product to be used at that location. “Area, Rooms, Wall” describes the semantic representation of such relationships. When both areas and product types are classified, machine executable reasoner-based design rules may be utilised to determine compliance.

Representation of area types and area restrictions and barrier types from standards such as NORSOK S-001, Technical safety, and NORSOK S-002, Working environment. The blue M003 Collaboration Room and M013 HVAC Plant Room both are examples of such classified areas. A specified plant area becomes an individual in the asset model. The plant topology is described using object property relations between areas, boundaries and objects that residesIn areas. NORSOK S-002 Office/Meeting Room is a semantic representation of the document content. The same applies for the other yellow classes.
