What is ETIM?
•It is the international data model for the standardisation and classification of technical product data.
•It is a logical, unambiguous classification or taxonomy which is both manufacturer and system independent.
•It is designed to facilitate the smooth transfer of product data through the supply chain, without any re-working or re-keying
•The data is ready to be used on a website, printed catalogue or BIM product data template.
•The ETIM model includes the most important technical characteristics required for a buyer or specifier to find and select the correct product.
