Abstract

Facilities and buildings require large amounts of capital, but do not themselves produce goods and services. Therefore, decisions to build, lease, buy, renovate, or relocate must be made very carefully. According to a recent report by the International Facility Management Association, a quarter of a corporation’s budget is spent on tracking of information about equipment and people as they move about. The same report states that the use of computer-aided facilities management systems enables managers to realize increased productivity and significant cost savings. This paper examines the nature of decision support required for facilities planning and management, and presents a design for a generic facilities planning and management decision support system. Several commercially available microcomputer-based systems in support of facilities planning and management are evaluated in light of the proposed design.
