I’ve been discussing the use case of IFC to convey object libraries with manufacturers recently. I’m interested in hearing if there is merit to expanding the applicable entities for psets such as http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifc/IFC4/Add2/html/link/pset_manufacturertypeinformation.htm
It denotes an applicable type of IfcElement, but in an object library context there would only be an IfcElementType (refer below and attached sample). I’d suggest there was merit in expanding the appropriate entity so these could be nominated including GlobalTradeItemNumber etc. I’m sure there are other psets similar.
