Industry Challenge

Digital transformation within the Facility Management Operations (FMO) profession lags in digitally integrating many facilities' assets with business processes. Furthermore, FMOs are often disconnected from the design and construction of the facilities they maintain, resulting in a lack of clarity and specificity in requirements, inefficient reviews and ineffective handover of the assets. The separation of FMO from the data, information, technology and capital process dramatically reduces an organization's ability to answer some of the most crucial questions about the assets in their portfolio, including:

  1. Predictions of asset whole-life costs
  2. Assessment of climate risks
  3. Recover from disaster
  4. Maintain high availability
  5. Deliver equity to occupants

Proposed Solution

The Digital Execution Plan – FMO Task Group will define an FMO roadmap through a capital program from pre-construction to post-occupancy to achieve digital integration.
