Abstract: This paper explores the purpose, role, and structure of these systems, showing how micro-computers can be exploited to improve the quality of decision making in capital planning and related areas. To illustrate the design factors which are common to the whole range of facilities management systems, as well as to identify areas where such systems must be carefully customized to an organization's specific role, capabilities, and environment, two actual systems are compared. These two very different systems have important things in common, including an interactive, evolutionary design approach which is critical to their successful implementation.
