BIM for Facility Management (BIM for FM) is the data and business processes that support building owner’s facility life-cycle decisions.
Owner, contractor, and A/E processes must be available to support cradle-to-grave decision support relative to the built environment. Without these processes, BIMs is little more than 3D CAD.
Owners alone can drive BIM and it’s associated processes to define the requisite data and internal processes to support specific and ever changing business and functional needs associated with the built environment.
Most owners do not have processes, systems, or the technology framework to supports this need. This, and the basic fabric of the AEC industry must change.
