Al-Hussein, Maria (2000) An information model to support maintenance and operation management of building mechanical systems. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
This thesis presents an information model developed to represent, organize, and link information essential to maintenance and operation management, a facility management function. It first describes the facility management domain and identifies facility information as a primary element to sustain the decision-making process. Then it discusses the need for open communication channels to allow information exchange throughout facility's life-cycle phases, reviews several models addressing information integration, and introduces a framework, which ensures interoperability within different facility management functions. The proposed information model focuses on the information describing building mechanical systems and utilizes object-oriented modeling language. To validate the information model, a prototype is implemented and a real case-study is investigated to provide data and to demonstrate how the research relates to practice.
