Manage assets and maintenance plans in a BIM-integrated way

usBIM.facility is the application to manage building maintenance and to integrate all facility management activities (BIM Software for Facility Management) into the BIM process in an advanced way.

With usBIM.facility you access the facility management environment directly from usBIM -  BIM management System.

You have an overview with all ticket activities; with a simple click on the graphs you can locate on the model the objects that have a ticket with the selected priority.

Everything related to the control, verification and maintenance of assets can be done directly on the facility application and be immediately visible on the BIM model.

The ability to use the application from mobile devices gives you the additional advantage of being able to receive information in real time and carry out maintenance activities wherever you are, opening, taking charge of and closing tickets, repositioning assets.

Site management

Visualise and identify a location directly on the model and obtain property information in both the BIM model and the facility system.

Management of assets and maintenance plans

From the asset tab you can view or search all assets; select the individual asset and manage all information (properties, tickets and attachments) directly from the template; you can also view maintenance plans by checking information and assets belonging to them.

Management of maintenance activities

Organise maintenance tasks by filtering them by date or by room, view planned tasks and the checklist of tasks to be performed for maintenance (you can get more details of maintenance tasks by connecting to the facility).

Ticket management

You can view open tickets or create new ones and easily define the entire ticket lifecycle from the request for action (creation), to assignment to the most appropriate user (by skills, distance, etc.) to closure via acceptance and waiting status.

FAQ

Facility management refers to the set of operations concerning the maintenance and management of all aspects of an existing building: from systems (electrical, hydraulic, mechanical) to greenery, from safety and surveillance systems to cleaning, from the conservation of the performance levels of the building components to the eventual disposal of the asset.

In practice, facility management is the process of design, implementation and control through which facilities (i.e. the buildings and services necessary to support and facilitate the company's activity) are identified and delivered to achieve and maintain certain performance levels able to meet the company's needs and create a high-quality work environment with optimized spending.

Facility management is based primarily on the collection, storage, generation, updating and sharing of documents relating to the history of the building (graphics, technical data sheets, user manuals, warranty documents, reports, projects, etc.).

Having a complete information framework of a building is therefore essential to ensure its correct management and maintenance over time.

There are processes and methods that facilitate knowledge of the building and facility management, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM).

6D BIM is a unique approach in which everything related to the structure management process is collected within a single building information model.

The sixth dimension of BIM combines the 3D model with all the relevant information necessary for the maintenance and management of the asset strongly simplifying all activities (ordinary and extraordinary) which need to be carried out throughout the entire life cycle of the built asset.

In fact, BIM model is the digital twin of the built asset, a faithful virtual representation where the information of every single element of the existing building is collected and accessible.

Therefore, it also becomes an important simulation and programming tool that can be used to better organize the maintenance of an asset.

This approach makes it possible to simplify ordinary activities (such as searching for information, surveying, drafting practices), to guarantee a more detailed knowledge of the consistency of the asset, to identify any problems making both the behaviour of the building and its income more efficient.

In short, the advantages of BIM do not end with design but there are numerous benefits even when managing an asset:

  • better communication between stakeholders, avoiding misunderstandings and planning errors;
  • more accurate and complete maintenance schedules thanks to the information contained in the BIM model;
  • more reliable information for contractors;
  • simplified maintenance process for contractors and subcontractors;
  • more informed decisions and investments;
  • cost-benefit analysis to increase savings and minimize expenses;
  • centralised data and information regarding every useful aspect of the asset;
  • optimisation of asset performance throughout its life cycle;
  • process optimization (from the design phase through to demolition).

We could say that BIM is now an essential component for facility management processes because it supports and facilitates the entire decision-making phase and helps to optimize resources, collaboration and knowledge of the building throughout its life cycle.

In the process of managing an existing property, various stakeholders (technicians, contractors, owners, management companies, etc.) contribute who, in different capacities and skills, manage the data and information that come into play in the various maintenance operations.

Allowing the integration of such data, often from different sources, within platforms and applications for facility management is the task of the COBie (Construction Operations Building information exchange) standard.

In simple terms, the COBie is an .xml file format spreadsheet with a precise data structure which constitutes a standard to collect information that becomes part of the package delivered to the owner during the commissioning of the asset.

This makes it possible, first of all, to order and share the data relating to an artifact and its ancillary parts and to guarantee the client the completeness, compatibility and usability of the information necessary for the management of the building throughout its entire life.

The COBie data, thanks to their structured representation, are also fundamental for those who deal with the estimation of costs and for contractors, because they allow to vary the management of project data during the work in the simplest way possible: it is sufficient to modify the rows of the spreadsheet and the entire project is immediately revised.

COBie in .xml format can be obtained directly from the BIM authoring used, or through external applications that generate the file starting from the BIM model in IFC format.

To better manage all aspects of facility management directly on a single BIM model, you need a software or application dedicated to the control, verification and maintenance of assets.

This type of application is used to manage:

  • locations;
  • assets;
  • maintenance plans;
  • maintenance Activities;
  • all other possible activities to be carried out on the asset during its entire life cycle.

usBIM.facility is the application integrated into usBIM platform developed to manage all these aspects related to facility management.

With usBIM.facility, you can work from your mobile devices, receive information in real time and perform maintenance activities from anywhere.

You can open, take charge and close activities of any kind, reposition assets even if you are not in the office and don't have your PC or Laptop with you.
