SSUD70-307: 7D-BIM (Facilities Management)


This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/ Lean/IPD techniques, working in a collaborative project delivery environment, to optimise operation of a building or infrastructure facility, from maintenance, economics and other important perspectives, following completion of its commissioning. It is taught in a highly interactive environment and is dedicated to aspects of utilising BIM technology platforms to make intelligent decisions regarding design impacts on operations, during all project phases defined by the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework. The subject affords students the opportunity to engage in a practical exercise, using the BIM framework phases, with a focus on Lean construction and IPD principles, to assess potential operational phase impacts of design decisions.

This subject has been designed as a micro-credentialed course for the benefit of industry professionals.

Learning outcomes

1. Use BIM/Lean/IPD principles to inform a design approach that integrates facilities and operational management imperatives into project design and delivery decisions
2. Define the risk aspects of failing to ensure collaborative use of BIM information in making design and construction decisions, especially with a facilities/operations management framework in mind, at all stages of the delivery process as defined in the buildingSMART Australasia BIM framework.
3. Describe the importance of collaborative and integrated input to design, cognisant of impacts on facilities management and operation phase imperatives, by all members of the project delivery team.
4. Recognise why BIM model knowledge is important in the preparation and maintenance of realistic and useful facilities management plans.
5. Experience how facilities management in the BIM/Lean/IPD project delivery environment can be far more accurate, informative, and rapidly delivered because of the 3D modelling and AR/VR aspects of design data presentation.
6. Describe benefits of BIM informed project design and life cycle costing, with an emphasis on optimising practical and costs aspects of long term facilities management and operation factors using BIM/Lean/IPD project delivery informed technologies.
7. State the benefits of ensuring life-cycle major maintenance and replacement of equipment items are included in the project BIM model.
