Despite The Significant Benefits Of Building Information Modeling (BIM) That Can Be Potentially Achieved During The Operation And Maintenance (O&M) Phase, Industry Has So Far Mainly Focused On Its Implementation In The Design And Construction Phases. As-Built BIM Models Cannot Be Efficiently Used Mainly Due To A Lack Of Expertise On The Owners’ And Operators’ Side To Update And Use Them. Moreover, Industry Standards Do Not Contain Precise Guidelines To Ensure The Ease Of Use, Interoperability, And Maintainability, For An Efficient And Effective Utilization Of Models. Additionally, As These Models Are Mainly Developed For The Design And Construction Phases, They Usually Lack Information Required For The Building’s Operations And Contain Many Superfluous Details. These Issues Constitute Some Of The Main Barriers To The Adoption Of BIM For O&M. In This Light, This Research Investigates Delivering Correspondence Between As-Built Models And O&M Requirements, Using Procedures And Automated Tools To Facilitate Quality Management Activities For FM-BIM.Read full article
