In March this year, the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries, CEI-Bois, initiated a pilot project together with Cobuilder to help manufacturers digitise their data and make it available in a machine-readable and standardised format. As part of the pilot project, the CEI-Bois initiative TIMBIM will create a common data dictionary and common data templates that are based on relevant harmonised product and test standards and are applied across all European countries.
