Gatwick Airport is the busiest single-runway airport in the world and the second largest in the UK. They are currently partway through a $1.6-billion capital investment program for both building refurbishments and large infrastructure projects up to 2014. Gatwick recently received accreditation for PAS 55 (asset management) and is using these processes to optimize asset management. As Gatwick's Building Information Modeling (BIM) maturity increases, they are starting to use models for improved communication and stakeholder engagement. Most significantly, they are exploring the use of COBie to provide an improved hierarchy within CMMS and as a protocol for moving data from BIM to facilities management. This class provides an overview of tight integration between Autodesk® BIM authoring and review tools and IBM Maximo®. We demonstrate how to integrate asset data with Maximo throughout the life of a project and how the data can be reused to begin future projects.
- Explain the process of uploading assets from Revit®-based software to Maximo using various methods, such as IFC, COBie, or direct transfer
- Use improved navigation of 3D models directly linked to Maximo to visually identify assets
- Describe business integration opportunities with design information flowing to construction, to facilities management, and back to design
- Explain how a virtual building handover improves business
