IDENTIFYING THE IMPACT OF INTEGRATING BUILDING INFORMATION MODELINGWITH MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT A LITERATURE REVIEW
Journal of Al-Azhar University Engineering Sector
Building maintenance is considered to be the cornerstone of modern management systems for newly established projects. One of the reasons is that it plays an important role in reducing maintenance cost and increasing the lifetime of project components. However the lack of sufficient studies, lack of awareness and lack of coordination with different disciplines on a project delivery process affect maintenance managers and staff on having accurate and specific information needed for a project
... nents, which leads to waste of resources, time and indirect cost of a project, While technological development gives one of the most popular systems which is known as building information modeling (BIM) as a new tool to support maintenance management. Thus, the main objective of this paper is to identify the impact of integrating building information modeling with maintenance management, whether this integration would be useful for stakeholders or would it help in reducing project budget and save time or not. The research methodology involved a literature review study on this topic. Where it is found that maintenance managers can reach the higher quality and better performance for a project by using BIM tools, data required and process. Furthermore, such integration has proved to be a great value regarding the efficiency of the maintenance management process, eliminating waste of time, rework and sequentially cost reduction.
