SSUD70-307: BIM for Asset and Facilities Management May 2021 [Intensive - Week 11]

General information

This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/ Lean/IPD techniques, working in a collaborative project delivery environment, to optimise the operation of a building or infrastructure facility, from maintenance, economics and other essential perspectives, following completion of its commissioning. It is taught in a highly interactive environment. It 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 allows students the opportunity to engage in a practical exercise, using the BIM framework phases, focuses 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.

Assurance of learning

Assurance of Learning means that universities take responsibility for creating, monitoring and updating curriculum, teaching and assessment so that students graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need for employability and/or further study.

At Bond University, we carefully develop subject and program outcomes to ensure that student learning in each subject contributes to the whole student experience. Students are encouraged to carefully read and consider subject and program outcomes as combined elements.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

Program Learning Outcomes provide a broad and measurable set of standards that incorporate a range of knowledge and skills that will be achieved on completion of the program. If you are undertaking this subject as part of a degree program, you should refer to the relevant degree program outcomes and graduate attributes as they relate to this subject.

Subject Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

On successful completion of this subject the learner will be able to:
  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.

  • * Assessment timing is indicative of the week that the assessment is due or begins (where conducted over multiple weeks), and is based on the standard University academic calendar
  • C = Students must reach a level of competency to successfully complete this assessment.

Assessment criteria

Pass Usually awarded to students whose performance meets the requirements set for work provided for assessment.
Fail Usually awarded to students whose performance is not considered to meet the minimum requirements set for particular tasks. The fail grade may be a result of insufficient preparation, of inattention to assignment guidelines or lack of academic ability. A frequent cause of failure is lack of attention to subject or assignment guidelines.

Quality assurance

For the purposes of quality assurance, Bond University conducts an evaluation process to measure and document student assessment as evidence of the extent to which program and subject learning outcomes are achieved. Some examples of student work will be retained for potential research and quality auditing purposes only. Any student work used will be treated confidentially and no student grades will be affected.

Study information

Submission procedures

Students must check the [email protected] subject site for detailed assessment information and submission procedures.

Policy on late submission and extensions

A student who has not established a basis for an extension in compliance with University and Faculty policy either by 1) not applying before the assessment due date or 2) by having an application rejected due to failure to show a justifiable cause for an extension, will receive a penalty on assessment submitted after its due date. The penalty will be 10% of marks awarded to that assessment for every day late, with the first day counted after the required submission time has passed. No assessment will be accepted for consideration seven calendar days after the due date. Where a student has been granted an extension, the late penalty starts from the new due date and time set out in the extension.

Policy on plagiarism

The University’s Academic Integrity Policy defines plagiarism as the act of misrepresenting as one’s own original work: another’s ideas, interpretations, words, or creative works; and/or one’s own previous ideas, interpretations, words, or creative work without acknowledging that it was used previously (i.e., self-plagiarism). The University considers the act of plagiarising to be a breach of the Student Conduct Code and, therefore, subject to the Discipline Regulations which provide for a range of penalties including the reduction of marks or grades, fines and suspension from the University.

Bond University utilises Originality Reporting software to inform academic integrity.

Feedback on assessment

Feedback on assessment will be provided to students within two weeks of the assessment submission due date, as per the Assessment Policy.

Disability support

If you have a disability, illness, injury or health condition that impacts your capacity to complete studies, exams or assessment tasks, it is important you let us know your special requirements, early in the semester. Students will need to make an application for support and submit it with recent, comprehensive documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer. Students with a disability are encouraged to contact the Disability Office at the earliest possible time, to meet staff and learn about the services available to meet your specific needs. Please note that late notification or failure to disclose your disability can be to your disadvantage as the University cannot guarantee support under such circumstances.
