CURRENT PRACTICE A disparate set of CAD systems for drawing, geometric modeling and visualization is used in current building practice, together with an increasingly wide range of independent, application specific, programs for design analysis and construction or facility management. Isolated application systems, with fragmented data models and separate filesystems, prevail. Integration at the application level is still in its infancy, but developments in datamodeling and database management systems (DMBS) have contributed to data integration and the emergence of common user's interfaces.
