Automating the extraction of quantities

Drogemuller, Robin & Tucker , Selwyn (2003) Automating the extraction of quantities. In unknown.


The Automated Estimator and LCADesign are two early examples of nD modelling software which both rely on the extraction of quantities from CAD models to support their further processing. The issues of building information modelling (BIM), quantity takeoff for different purposes and automating quantity takeoff are discussed by comparing the aims and use of the two programs. The technical features of the two programs are also described. The technical issues around the use of 3D models is described together with implementation issues and comments about the implementation of the IFC specifications. Some user issues that emerged through the development process are described, with a summary of the generic research tasks which are necessary to fully support the use of BIM and nD modelling.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
