CodeBook for FM - Full Lifecycle BIM, Linking Revit, IBM Maximo and ESRI

Finally, bidirectional parameter data flow between BIM, Facilities Management Data and GIS Data

PORTSMOUTH, R.I., Sept. 8 — (PRNewswire) — CDV Systems, Inc., implementation and training industry leaders for Autodesk Revit® and US Distributors of CodeBook®, is proud to announce CodeBook V9 for FM. CodeBook for FM facilitates parameter creation and bidirectional data flow and integration with Revit Architecture & Revit MEP models to IBM Maximo for FM data, and room coordinate points to ESRI for GIS location tracking data.

Full Lifecycle Management

"For years, there has been a clear divide between BIM data and FM/GIS data," comments Cyril Verley, founder of CDV Systems. "CodeBook's link completes the definition of a building's 'Full Lifecycle Management,' allowing BIM parameter data to flow across all platforms during all phases. This changes the whole dynamic of BIM. BIM can now be used not only for pre-design, documentation construction and as-built development, but can also continue into FM/OM GIS for room, space and asset management and sets the stage for future pre-design renovation, completing the full project lifecycle."

CodeBook Compares and Validates Program Requirements

For the past 14 years, CodeBook(R) has had a well-established and proven record of success integrating and bidirectionally linking project programs, equipment and furniture data using an MS Access database with CADD or BIM programs such as Autocad, Microstation and now Revit Architecture & MEP 2009, 2010 & 2011, 32 & 64-bit. CodeBook plans to release their SQL version by the end of September 2010. Once linked, CodeBook allows the monitoring and validation of design changes during the entire design and documentation process by comparing the "required" program and asset data to the "designed" model data in the Revit project. Parameter data can flow back and forth between programs and BIM models, allowing CodeBook to manage the project program, equipment furniture, and other asset needs, while Revit manages the graphical data.  

Downstream Data

CodeBook reports data, formatted for Maximo and ESRI GIS use, and reports data in MS Word using templates, as well as output report data for use in Excel and Access. Since the bulk of the project information data resides in CodeBook, the demands on the Revit model are significantly reduced, decreasing the BIM file size down to more manageable levels.

"The ability for CodeBook FM to integrate with Revit MEP opens many new doors to better manage MEP requirements, system and equipment data, for the full lifecycle of a project," comments Daniel Stonecipher, CDV Systems' Director of MEP Development. "For owners, designers and builders, this integration allows the project to quickly react to different design requirements throughout the stages of design, irrespective of delivery method, and facilitates a smooth transition from Design to FM/OM and back. We see building retrofits are increasingly being realized for their many sustainable, social and financial benefits, and MEP design is at the heart of any renovation."
