The 3d Model keep the data simple

I was under the impression the 3d model in the building information modelling environment needed to contain all the specifications for the doors or window as of such, but if we take the approach that the model be will attached /linked to a CDEThe single source of information for any given project, used to collect, manage and disseminate all relevant approved project information. Stored digitally, this is where information is shared collaboratively in a logical, accessible way to help all key parties gain access to information. database that all could use it throughout the building /operation stages. Then we might be able to keep the model very simple and use the standard component that come with the drawing package, then when the supplier of then windows or doors will make the required adjustments in the order. And these are fed back into the database that is linked to model via a COBieA spreadsheet data format that contains digital information about an maintainable assets in as complete and as useful a form as possible. This spreadsheet has a has a pre-defined structure that is used to both store and index information transferred within the CDE. A COBie file contains only ... formatted spread sheet this could be treated as model update from data side. Instead of updating the model, this could be done quite easily after the spread sheets are templated and tested. So this could in theory give you the best of both worlds, a living concept model, with a database / specification. Any thoughts…
