The proper maintenance and management of a given facility are what assure maximum safety of the occupants as well as the continuity of business if at all the facility under management is a business establishment.

For such a long time, maintenance and management-related decisions are usually based upon accumulated historical data of a given building. The data is stored in either manual form in files or digital forms in databases. The key detrimental issue regarding either form of storages is that they can either be text based or in 2D drawing formats if at all they involve the structure of the building.

Facility management and maintenance data stored either in text or 2D drawing formats are sometimes not intuitive enough during interpretation for decision-making purposes. Since most facilities are developed on different forms of data, it is quite time-consuming and sometimes difficult to comprehend and relate different types of data presented in either text form or 2D drawing surfaces.


The basic idea behind facility management and maintenance is to assist building managers to identify and solve a problem within the shortest time possible. 3D visualization technologies are the best applications at enabling users get an intuitive understanding of all matters pertaining facility management and maintenance.


Rather than requiring facility managers to pick up and connect different pieces of information together to finally derive an appropriate decision, 3D visualization interfaces systematically integrate and store various maintenance-related data together. The data in the 3D visualization interfaces are constantly accumulated and synchronized via inputs from users as well as sensors installed in various parts of a given facility.


With the application of 3D visualization information technology in facility management and maintenance, decision-makers are able to clearly figure out the relationships existing between spaces and  systems, as well as the general architecture of  premises. This eliminates guesswork in the decision making process as well as reduces on the time taken to make observations and deduct proper decisions.

The rise of smart technologies in building management and maintenance is completely transforming the work of service technicians. They add a layer of reality to their working experience; for example, with 3D visualization interfaces, the technicians will be able to even know the right set of tools for required for a maintenance exercise before getting on site. In time sensitive and emergency situations, they can perfectly salvage various calamity situations as a result of the preciseness offered with 3D technologies in decision making processes.

Some advanced 3D visualization models can practically provide every data aspect of a building including the very precise ones such as temperatures and particular coordinate points locations.  

In order for an organization or any other form of establishment to function effectively; facility management and maintenance are important. Proper building management guarantee the availability and protection of various required resources to execute different tasks. The good news is that 3D visualization interfaces provide quality facility management and maintenance for checking and fixing different installations with faults in a building.
