Many computer programs are available for managing the operations and maintenance aspects of a facility. To date, most computer programs for managing a facility have been generated by mechanical and electrical engineers, and by front office fiscal experts. The advent of CADD now permits civil/structural engineers to create more comprehensive databases that will be used in facilities management. Case histories of current applications and predictions about evolution of a single database covering the entire life cycle of a building are included.
