Abstract. This contribution shows part of a research activity aimed at supporting data documentation related to artworks and decorative apparatuses that characterize the architectural heritage using bSDD as a methodological tool. The proposal approach aims to provide specific information in SCAN-to-BIM processes, implementing HBIM models of decorative apparatuses or artworks with data on the state of conservation and morphological-structural composition according to the material of each component of the system (Lanzara and Scandurra, 2023). The main goal of this activity is the creation of open and detailed information models shareable and consultable via IFC exchange format (ISO 16739:2018), supporting conservation, prevention, maintenance and restoration of historical-artistic heritage. The use of codes, manuals, vocabularies and thesauri, and the multidisciplinary knowledge of specialists, shared within the theoretical and operational framework of the restoration and conservation of cultural heritage, informally contribute to supplement existing codes and to implement/define new datasets for information about deficient and not codified conservation states for specific materials. The structuring of the Data Dictionary is supported by ACCA software's usBIM.bSDD application, accessible via a collaborative web-based platform (Scandurra and di Luggo, 2023). According to the proposed workflow, shared terms and definitions can be integrated within the graphic model of the manufacts and structured within a CDE – Common Data Environment. The system, which has already been tested in the context of historical architecture, is currently being tested on movable and immovable decorative apparatuses and artworks, selected for their constituent materials and compositional complexity. This contribution presents the experimentation on the decorative apparatus of the major altar of the Church of Santa Maria di Costantinopoli in Naples.
