Improve the efficiency and quality of project and facility management, operations processes and regulatory interfaces. This is accomplished through standardization of work process and information flows, interoperability of software tools, and knowledgeable staff working together in a collaborative environment. This results in an enhancement of project and facility management and operation communication, reduction of schedule and improvement of the quality of deliverables; additionally, this improves interface between public and private sector throughout the life cycle of the building on regulatory issues.
An integrated, collaborative and automated project facility management, control and regulatory environment that provides a complete end-to-end project management coordination and control capability that is well connected with both upstream and downstream project processes. The automated project and facility management and control system of the future will dramatically reduce the time and cost in moving through construction and operation functions and will enable seamless integration of disparate project teams. Streamlined regulatory processes will reduce construction costs and facilitate disaster resiliency in the built environment.
What if you could easily share real time project and facility management coordination and control data within your company for each of your facilities and where you so desired with your clients, procurement and construction teams, joint venture partners, contractors, suppliers, and fabricators?
What if your project management and control environment worked together as a seamless interconnected system to provide all of the functionality needed to plan, develop, validate, and execute all aspects of your project and building operations?
What if you could greatly reduce project and facility management and operations risk through application of automated design, optimization, verification, and change management systems?
What if all aspects of your building interface with the regulatory system – building department, planning/land use zoning, fire, environmental agencies, were streamlined to reduce by as much as 70% the amount of time you now spend going through the regulatory system and the data you transmitted to government were done electronically?
The goal of this element of the Roadmap is to identify and pursue the data models, business processes
and functions required to advance the development of a fully integrated facility planning and management system that can be seen as the real-time system across the design, construction and facility life cycle. It is critical that this system can be adopted throughout the capital projects and facilities industry. The goal also includes identifying and reducing, or eliminating, regulatory barriers to effective and efficient building design, construction, operation and maintenance and construction code enforcement through the use of interoperable information technology and other streamlining processes.
Specific objectives include:
