A process in which the functionality of the project and equipment serving the project are maintained over the operational life of a facility. A successful maintenance program will improve building performance, reduce repairs, and reduce overall maintenance costs.

Potential Value:
  • Plan maintenance activities proactively and appropriately allocate maintenance staff
  • Track maintenance history
  • Reduce corrective maintenance and emergency maintenance repairs
  • Increase productivity of maintenance staff because the physical location of equipment/system is clearly understood
  • Evaluate different maintenance approaches based on cost
  • Allow facility managers to justify the need and cost of establishing a reliability centered maintenance program
Resources Required:
  • Design review software to view Record Model and components
  • Building Automation System (BAS) linked to Record Model
  • Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) linked to Record Model
  • User-Friendly Dashboard Interface linked to Record Model to provide building performance information and/or other information to educate building users
Team Competencies Required:
  • Ability to understand and manipulate CMMSÂ and building control systems with Record Model
  • Understanding of typical equipment operation and maintenance practices
  • Ability to manipulate, navigate, and review a 3D Model
