The benefits of using construction information modeling (BIM) in the design and construction phases of assets are well documented. However, it is the owners who have the most to gain from the use of BIM in the operation and maintenance of assets. Yet, little research has been done on the transfer of digital deliverables from BIM projects to asset managers despite the great importance of these deliverables for the operation and maintenance of assets.
This research aims to analyze the information management process during the delivery of a digital asset and to observe how the international data management standard is applied to a project in the Quebec context. It is supported by a literature review that addresses (1) the beneficial effects of BIM applied to asset management (BIM-FM), (2) the influence of the Quebec context on the implementation of BIM-FM, (3) the issues related to the implementation of BIM-FM, and (4) the standards that can help managers deal with the issues of BIM-FM.
The methodological approach of the study is based on the collection of qualitative information through interviews with the actors involved in the pilot project, which serves as a case study, as well as on information found in the project documents.
