Data driven engineering to improve the performance of asset maintenance
The UK construction industry has been mandated to improve the design, delivery & maintenance of assets through the delivery of digital information (BIM). BIM is now being implemented for design & construction, but its use for asset management & maintenance is only beginning to be considered. This project will progress the use of BIM as the cornerstone of data management for asset maintenance & management (BIM levels 3 & 4).
The project will identify, for a given asset type, the data required for through-life management, how to link this to the BIM model to visualise the data & understand the condition of the asset. Modelling will simulate the deterioration of the asset, & enable evaluation of different potential maintenance scenarios to establish which gives best value.
