This study extends the mvdXML Checker with a mvdXML Generator and user interface to make it more user friendly for domain end‐users. The mvdXML Generator enables domain end‐users to specify requirements and generate mvdXML rulesets in the same spreadsheet template. The mvdXML Generator is based on the NATSPEC Object/Element matrix. The user interface is developed to operate the mvdXML Generator and mvdXML Checker. In the future, more free‐to‐use model checkers based on open standards, such as the mvdXML Checker, should be developed. Similar incentives offer domain end‐users the possibility freely exchange information between applications, make adjustment to applications, and reduce the threshold for SMEs to make use of automated model checking software. Ultimately, the extension of the mvdXML Checker aims to enhance the quality of data in building information models.
