Abstract: Maintenance management (MM) has become an important work during the operation phase of the construction life cycle. Managing facilities effectively is extremely difficult owing to various factors and environments. One of the difficulties is the performance of 2D graphics when depicting maintenance service. Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies uses precise geometry and relevant data which depicted in 3D object-oriented CAD to supporting the maintenance service of facilities. This study proposes and develops a BIM execution plan for maintenance management especially at early stage of operation and maintenance phase. With the application of proposed BIM execution plan, the implementation of BIM technologies can be effective in the operation and maintenance phase. The proposed BIM execution plan is then applied in selected case study of a building project in Taiwan to verify the proposed methodology and demonstrate its effectiveness in practice. The combined results demonstrate that a proposed BIM execution plan can be an effective management approach for MM. The advantage of the proposed BIM execution plan lies not only in improving MM work efficiency integrated with BIM technologies but also in maximizing the value and benefits from BIM to support the maintenance management.
Keywords: BIM, building information modeling; maintenance management; facility management.
