Supporting agcXML Initiative

Supporting agcXML Initiative

COINS a Gold sponsor of the agcXML initiative.

Having worked on the issue of system interoperability for many years internationally, we recognizes this as both a US and global issue.

The experience COINS gained by building the largest e-trading hub in the UK – matching purchase orders, invoices and payments between a company’s ERP and supplier using standardized data formats – is something we can bring to the initiative. The Business Application Software Developers Association (BASDA) is an association in the UK of which COINS has been a member since 1996. The BASDA Interoperability Charter was formed to solidify its members’ commitment toward increasing their customers’ ability to improve process efficiency and gain competitive advantage through interoperability. Sharing lessons learned and strategies used by BASDA is another way in which COINS can contribute to the agcXML initiative.

About agcXML initiative

The agcXML Project will result in a set of XML schemas for the transactional data that is now commonly exchanged in paper documents. Examples of such documents include, but are not limited to, owner/contractor agreements, schedules of values, requests for information (RFIs), requests for proposals (RFPs), architect/engineer supplemental instructions, change orders, change directives, submittals, applications for payment, and addenda.

To ensure compatibility with related efforts, the agcXML Project is being executed as part of the buildingSMART Initiative of the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI), within the framework of the IAI's agcXML Domain, and under the auspices of the International Alliance for Interoperability-North America, a Council of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS). The project is one of several AGC efforts in the building information modeling (BIM) and interoperability arenas, including the recently published Contractor's Guide to Building Information Modeling.
