Welcome to the discussion forum focused on the integration of Building Information Models (BIM) and Facilities Management (FM). Facility Managers face tremendous challenges improving and standardizing the quality of data available. This makes it difficult to meet the day-to-day operational needs as well as to provide management reliable data for developing and managing business processes. BIM is poised to offer a new level of functionality for the management of buildings and the physical assets within them. This data model provides the information in its attributes to describe (in detail) the infrastructure of a building. This is becoming more frequently used by contractors and is part of the turnover of a building to the owner. Participants are encouraged to use this space to discuss BIM to FM aspects, both from a technical integration and business process change view. This forum is also used for technical discussion surrounding the IBM ISM offering of the Maximo extensions for Building Information Models.
