Abstract: The USACE/Industry BIM Consortium has been developing a specification and standardized delivery process for collecting and exchanging facility data required by the Department of Defense and the Army for downstream applications. This effort produced a new Unified Facilities Guide Specification, UFGS 01 78 24.00 10 (Facility Data Requirements), which defines a prioritized set of assets and data attributes. A project-development team performed a pilot study to validate that these assets and attributes meet the Army’s needs for populating their Operations and Maintenance data systems. The focus of the pilot study was to verify that asset data collected during facility construction at three Army installations could effectively be imported to the Army General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS). With the help of GFEBS experts from Installation Management Command, the project team developed a Facility Data Workbook (FDW), a spreadsheet application that facilitates the collection of facility data and translates the data into the GFEBS equipment input format. An FDW was developed for each selected facility at the pilot sites and the GFEBS input process at each installation was evaluated. Recommended changes to the specification have been drafted and will be evaluated for inclusion in an update to the guide specification.
