BIM-Based Real-Time Monitoring of the Equipment Maintenance of Property


Article Preview

The operation phase is not only the longest stage of the life cycle of a project, but also the moment when people accumulates most information of the project. Because of the secular and complexity of property management during the operation period, and as there is large amount of information loss during the several periods before operation, it is very difficult to manage equipments all through the way. Based on the BIM technology, authors build a database of the equipment operation parameters to solve this problem. This paper realizes the real-time monitoring of the update of equipment information, equipment maintenance and fault handling during the operation stage. The research puts forward a new way to improve the standards of property management which will lead to a better economic benefits.
