This thesis forms the final project at Aalborg University’s Master´s degree in Building Informatics.
The purpose of this thesis is to analyse the use of classification systems and work processes in connection with a Facilities Management organisation. The analyses made in relation with this thesis, forms the base for the tests performed with methodologies, and development of systems. The thesis puts focus upon the operational division, and their daily work processes, as well as their requirements towards a new FM system. The work processes and requirements for the new system are thoroughly analysed, thereby forming a base for new solutions.
The thesis is based upon scientific literature regarding Facilities Management, classification systems and work processes, supplemented by work experience provided by the group, about currently used tools. The project takes its starting point in reports from Cuneco and BuildingSMART, relevant FM literature and Contextual Design in relation with the utilization of tools and work processes. Methodologies used in this thesis, has been put in relations with the organisations existing requirements for a new FM system. To support these subjects, the project is based upon “Frederikshavns Ejendomscenter’s” transition to a new FM system that is expected to be ready to use, at the end of 2014.
This thesis is directed at municipalities or similar organisations, which are going to, or are introducing a FM function in their firm, or implementing a new FM system.
”Arbejdsprocesser og klassifikationssystemers indvirkning på en Facilities Management organisation” starts with the introduction of the project case, which then leads to an analysis of particular problems, which can arise in connection with the introduction of a new FM system. Afterwards the methodologies used in composition with the analysed problems in the thesis are described. The thesis’ structure is parted in a set of concept describing chapters, which prepares the reader for the data collection chapter, which then forms the base for the thesis’ solutions. At the end of the thesis, concrete test are conducted with tools and currently used information exchanging methodologies.
The thesis is concluded in partial conclusions at the end of each chapter, which are then summarized in a main conclusion, wherein the problem statement is answered. Hereby giving the reader an insight in the methodologies and tools, tested by the group and which ones they define as strengthening for the FM organisation.
To conclude the thesis, the group reflects on opinions regarding the used methodologies and work processes within thesis, which is reviewed at the end of the report.
