Moving the Facilities and Infrastructure Industries Into the Information Age

While the implementation of BIM has been a major industry focus of recent years, our vision must shift to look at the broader vision of Asset Management, Virtual Design, Construction, and Operations (VDCO) and high-level metrics. We shall bring all the strategies, tools, and technologies together to profoundly reduce waste, significantly improve productivity, reduce total cost of ownership, and create a sustainable environment for continuous future improvement, all of which will make the needed changes attractive to investors to accomplish rapidly. This white paper is intended to identify what actions are imperative in moving the facilities and infrastructure industries forward in this country and around the world. It is to these ends that we must dedicate all future effort.
