IFMA Technology for Facility Managers. The Impact of Cutting-Edge Technology on Facility Management


A comprehensive look at the impact of technology on facility managers Facility managers are tasked with operating and maintaining the built environment. Technology plays a big role in this function, and often facility managers are asked to install, implement, and work with a variety of technologies without any prior experience in information technology. Technology for Facility Managers presents the cutting-edge technology that facility managers will come across in their careers. Each chapter covers a different technology and includes an overview and basic primer about the technology—the current use of the technology, how it's evolving, and how it will impact the practice of facility management in the future—and is complemented with case studies that address how the technology was implemented and the effect it had on the organization. Technologies covered include: Building information modeling (BIM) Building automation systems (BAS) FM automation (CAFM/IWMS) Condition assessment/life cycle analysis Radio frequency identification (RFID) Geographic information systems (GIS) Social networking Sustainability and energy analysis Information and communications technology (ICT) Workflow technology that supports standards such as Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and those developed by the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) Technology for Facility Managers is appropriate as a textbook for IFMA Accredited Degree Programs and as a resource for professionals studying for certification through IFMA.

Linda Thomas-Mobley Legal Concepts for Facility Managers


Facility management – as any profession encompassing multiple disciplines and integrating technology, people and physical space – is not only complicated but fraught with occasions to be exposed to various legal liabilities Successful facility managers need the ability to manage risk well. They must understand the various ways the built environment can malfunction, anticipate the most likely problems and protect the owner's interest in such a way that the building can be safe for occupants yet productive for business purposes. The FM must therefore know the major tenants of risk avoidance, including knowledge of possible legal obstacles. Legal Concepts for Facility Managers informs facility managers of their legal responsibilities and helps them avoid unnecessary exposure to liability. Each major legal theory will be explained and illustrated with charts or case histories. Chapter learning outcomes and discussion questions will help students recall salient information and are also intended to be used as homework assignments or prompts for classroom discussions. As with any legal textbook expressly written for professionals who are not in the practice of law, the objective of this book is to inform students about their legal responsibilities. This text is not intended for students preparing to practice the law. It can be used in any course teaching built environment professionals how to avoid unnecessary exposure to legal liability.

Группа авторов BIM for Facility Managers


A practical look at extending the value of Building Information Modeling (BIM) into facility management—from the world's largest international association for professional facility managers Building owners and facility managers are discovering that Building Information Modeling (BIM) models of buildings are deep reservoirs of information that can provide valuable spatial and mechanical details on every aspect of a property. When used appropriately, this data can improve performance and save time, effort, and money in running and maintaining the building during its life cycle. It can also provide information for future modifications. For instance, a BIM could reveal everything from the manufacturer of a light fixture to its energy usage to maintenance instructions. BIM for Facility Managers explains how BIM can be linked to facility management (FM) systems to achieve very significant life-cycle advantages. It presents guidelines for using BIM in FM that have been developed by public and private owners such as the GSA. There is an extensive discussion of the legal and contractual issues involved in BIM/FM integration. It describes how COBie can be used to name, capture, and communicate FM-related data to downstream systems. There is also extensive discussion of commercial software tools that can be used to facilitate this integration. This book features six in-depth case studies that illustrate how BIM has been successfully integrated with facility management in real-life projects at: Texas A&M Health Science Center USC School of Cinematic Arts MathWork's new campus Xavier University State of Wisconsin Facilities University of Chicago Library renovation BIM for Facility Managers is an indispensable resource for facility managers, building owners, and developers alike.
