2 About National Institute of Building Sciences NIBS - Public Law , Sect. 809Bridge between Private and Public ConstructionNon-governmental – Unique 501c3 OrganizationFacility Information Council Mission"improve the performance of facilities over their full life-cycle by fostering common and open standards and an integrated life-cycle information model for the A/E/C & FM industry."NIBS Related Products –Construction Criteria BaseWhole Building Design GuideNational CAD StandardNational BIM StandardSome background on NIBS is important as many people don’t know about this unique organization and why it works so well for what we are trying to accomplish.Congress directed NIBS to “exercise its functions and responsibilities in four general areas, relating to building regulations……………..”1. Develop & maintain performance criteria for maintenance of life, safety, health, and public welfare for the built environment.2. Evaluate building technology to meet the above criteria.3. Conduct related and needed investigations4. Assemble, store, and disseminate technical data and related informationNIBS acts as a non-threatening open forum host for capital facilities industry collaboration and a recognized consensus processTwelve groups required to be represented by the legislation:Consumer and General Interest - Consumers, users, academia, media, and public interest groups.Architects - Architects and related professionals in private practice.Engineers - Engineers and related professionals in private practice.Federal Government - Officials and representatives of federal government agencies.State and Local Government - Officials and representatives of state and local government including code officials.Building Construction - Building construction contractors, subcontractors and utilities.Labor Organizations - Building trade unions.Housing - Builders, developers and housing producers.Building Materials and Products - Producers, manufacturers and distributors of materials and products used in the building process.Codes and Standards – Codes, Standards writing or producing organizations.Real Estate, Finance, Legal and Insurance - Owners, real estate financial and insurance organizations.Research, Testing and Other Services - Research organizations, testing laboratories, and other service organizations.

9 Business Process Change: COBIE Construction Operations Building Information Exchange Conception & Definition PhasesIdentify items from the specifications that will require warranty informationProcurement & Execution PhasesCollect information as items are ordered and delivered such as who is warranting, when the warranty starts, how long is the warranty period, what preventive maintenance is required to keep the warranty in forceUtilization & Closure PhasesRead the information collected directly into your CMMS software to ensure that the warranties are supportedOne of the examples we are using in NBIMS is the COBIE project.We are not as interested in the actual product as the process as it is one of the few that demonstrate how information flows from design through construction to the operations phase of the project.COBIE will demonstrate the flow of information through the phases of a facility something that is not yet happening yet Is critical to realize the total potential ROI
