Abstract: Since the civil infrastructure is used for a long period of time in service, functional degradation is inevitable due to changes in environmental conditions and use conditions. Therefore, maintenance of the structure is highly important. Consequently, vast amounts of information is created in the maintenance phase. To determine the appropriate information, it needs to be stored in a suitable manner. Therefore, in this study, for the purpose of properly managing the information by the systematization of information about degradation, we have developed a process model by expanding the IFC standard. This paper describes definitions of new entities in the process model and its structure. In addition, the paper demonstrates a practical example of the applications of the extended model.
