Building Information Modelling, or BIM, is steadily growing in importance throughout Australia and entering into the FM industry. 52% of FM professionals in our last software survey believed it would be a key technology, although reported uptake of BIM software is less than this figure. This is partly due to a perceived requirement for high level IT skills – and this myth will be busted at Total Facilities 2019.
The team at Service Works Global (SWG) will be demonstrating our QFM BIM software on stand E8, showing how building and asset information is captured (such as cost, location, service life, carbon impact, maintenance, spares, reordering, substitution, serial numbers and warranty details), made into a 3D model, and used by FMs to improve the cost and speed of their service. The process will show how asset information can be updated through the simple QFM interface and translated automatically onto the 3D model, meaning that no experience of CAD or Revit tools is required.
The team will also be providing advice on how CMMS software can save money and improve daily FM operations such as:
- using an app for operatives in the field to receive and complete work orders
- automating work assignments to the most suitable operatives to reduce work for the helpdesk and speed up work resolution
- providing self-service kiosks or computers to allow building users to log jobs themselves, request services or even check themselves in as a visitor when arriving for an appointment.
