The second release of the CIMsteel Integration Standards
(CIS/2) has been endorsed by the American Institute of
Steel Construction as the standard for the electronic
exchange of structural steel project information for the
North American steel design and construction industry.
Derived from the deliverables and experiences of the
Pan-European Eureka CIMsteel Project and published by
the Steel Construction Institute in the UK, the CIS/2
was developed with a life-cycle view of structural
steelwork information in mind. However, the primary
focus of both developers and implementers of CIS/2 has
been on the pre-construction processes of design,
analysis, detailing, and shop fabrication. This paper
examines the applicability of CIS/2 to on-site
construction processes, focusing on automating the
erection and surveying of structural steelwork and
integrating these two processes into the overall project
