Subject: RE: [obix] NIST Interoperability Report Now Available

I like this quote in the report:


Facilities management systems should interoperate with building

control systems to enhance operations and maintenance staff

productivity. As one stakeholder indicated, "For every dollar you

would save connecting design and construction, you could save

several times that connecting O&M controls to the original CAD

and engineering designs. Downstream is much more important

than connecting design software to construction [given that

facilities will be in operation for many years]. The design needs

to have better connectivity to real world data."

Subject: [obix] NIST Interoperability Report Now Available


Last year, the Building and Fire Research Laboratory and the Advanced Technology Program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) commissioned a study to identify and estimate the efficiency losses in the U.S. capital facilities industry resulting from inadequate interoperability among computer-aided design, engineering, and software systems. Although the focus of the study was on capital facilities-commercial/institutional buildings and industrial facilities-it was intended to benefit key stakeholders throughout the construction industry.



The final report of this study, prepared for NIST by RTI International and the Logistic Management Institute, estimates the cost of inadequate interoperability in the U.S. capital facilities industry to be $15.8 billion per year.



The intended audiences of this report are owners and operators of capital facilities; design, construction, operation and maintenance, and other providers of professional services in the capital facilities industry; and public- and private-sector research organizations engaged in developing interoperability solutions.



I am happy to announce that the 200+ page final report, entitled "Cost Analysis of Inadequate Interoperability in the U.S. Capital Facilities Industry," has received NIST Editorial Review Board approval as NIST GCR 04-867 and is now available for immediate downloading in pdf format from the NIST website:
