Building Information Modelling (BIM) like most innovations within construction has brought about its own set of terminology. These terms were created for two reasons: Firstly, to ensure that they did not associate with existing solutions that could take ownership of new innovation; and secondly to encourage adopters to look at their processes with fresh eyes.

While the new terminology has been successful in this regard it has had another less positive effect. Taking advantage of ambiguity within the industry misconceptions have been accepted as fact leading to uncertainty on the definition and scope of particular terms; this tool aims to tackle this issue.
