NAVFAC Building Information Management and Modeling (BIM) & Facility Electronic Operation and Maintenance Support Information (eOMSI) Program   

Introduction

The Navy is the 1st Federal Government Agency to leverage Building Information Management and Modeling (BIM) to acquire Facility Electronic Operation and Maintenance Support Information (eOMSI). While many Federal Agencies have implemented BIM over the past ten years for design and construction, NAVFAC is leveraging this process and technology to extend the life cycle of facilities and reducing their total ownership cost. Implementing BIM / eOMSI will improve the accuracy of the Navy's shore asset portfolio by standardizing electronic deliverables: required facility data, 2D drawings, and 3D parametric models.

Background

NAVFAC has the unique responsibility to plan, design, construct, and maintain Navy facilities. The Capital Improvements Business Line (CIBL) plans, designs and constructs facilities; the Public Works Business Line (PWBL) maintains facilities. CIBL took a proactive approach to understand how BIM technology was cost effective to support the maintenance of Navy facilities post-construction. Based on CIBL's review of facility related data processes and systems, a detailed facility life cycle map was generated to document a generic military construction project (MILCON) highlighting key milestones throughout the process: planning; design; construction; activation/transition; sustainment, restoration & modernization; and disposal. After executing in-house BIM Pilot Projects and coordinating with PWBL on their facility maintenance database requirements (MAXIMO), NAVFAC developed a phased plan to incorporate BIM to acquire Facility Electronic Operation and Maintenance Support Information (eOMSI), see Figure 1.

CIBL and PWBL collaborated to develop a BIM/eOMSI process to improve the delivery of accurate required facility data. The eOMSI Facility Data Workbook (FDW) is an excel spreadsheet that documents the Mastersystems, Systems, and Subsystems installed in the facility during construction by the Contractor. For each Subsystem installed in the facility, the Construction Contractor populates up to 17 required standardized facility asset data fields, see Table 1. Upon construction completion the Construction Contractor submits the final eOMSI FDW which is a contract deliverable to PWBL for upload to their authoritative database (MAXIMO).

BIM Definition

  • To develop a comprehensive strategy for collecting, managing, and sharing required data / information to accurately support facility life cycle from early planning to building disposal.

BIM Goals

  • Standardize data processes and data format for facility life-cycle sustainment.
  • Data entered once, used repeatedly, used consistently, and maintained current.

NAVFAC BIM is:

  • Electronic Data Deliverables (EDD) for facility life-cycle sustainment, restoration, and modernization (SRM).
    • Part I eOMSI Manuals:
         1) Product & Drawing Information
         2) Facility Information
    • Part II eOMSI Facility Data Workbook (FDW)
  • Software vendor neutral.

NAVFAC BIM is not:

  • A specific software solution (e.g. REVIT, Bentley); NAVFAC does not require private industry to purchase a particular software package to execute BIM.
  • NAVFAC is software neutral and does not specify a standard application to execute BIM.
  • A modeling solution.

  1. New construction greater than or equal to $1M.
  2. Major renovation greater than or equal to 50% of the Plant Replacement Value (PRV).
