The aim of this study was to suggest the System Architecture for Effective Architectural MEP Pipe Reverse Design(PRD) based on the Point Cloud and derive the consideration. To do this, the requirement and use-cases related to the MEP pipe reverse design work were defined and the architecture for the reverse design automation was proposed. To identify a consideration for finding the architecture issues, a prototype was developed using the architecture and evaluated.
