BIM2FM: Capturing Design & Construction Information for Building Operations and Facility Management
Architects, engineers, and contractors live in a model-centric (BIM) world. Building owners live in an information-centric world. Most building owners are not yet ready to manage live building information models, but many are ready to manage the rich data set of information that can be extracted from models. This session explains how building owners can bridge the BIM2FM gap by specifying an electronic building information deliverable in a format that they can actually use in their CAFM, CMMS, or IWMS software systems without laborious, time-consuming, and error-prone manual data re-entry.
1. Understand the components of a Facility Information Specification
2. Compare traditional contractual building information deliverables with the requirements of a Facility Information Specification
3. Analyze building information needs and organize them into a structured format
4. Prepare a detailed Facility Information Specification
