COBie: a tutorial for an FM Game-changer, Part A

The Construction Operation Building information exchange (COBie) is a standard format to collect and exchange building information through the different stages of the project; this is from design to operation. The presentation will provide an overview of COBie, which is part of the National BIM Standard-US, and available tools to enhance the users understanding and start their implementation. Using COBie as a tool to get new construction data quickly into your CMMS, CAFM, or IWMS system can save time and money. COBie gets the maintenance team up and running more quickly in a new structure, and can be used over the lifetime of the structure to save time and cost. The presentation will discuss Life Cycle Issues and address how COBie can be an effective tool over the entire life cycle of a building, and lead to more effective Facility Management. The presentation will look at how COBie and BIM will fundamentally change the value of facilities management to the host organizations. Information exchanges like COBie will involve the facilities manager from the beginning of a design process through the building life cycle.
