Alternate Methods to Obtain Facility Condition Assessment Data Using Non-Engineering Resources

Louis Bartels
Abstract— The Department of Defense has adopted the BUILDER application which will act as a single enterprise solution to performing facility condition assessment on their 2.2 billion square foot facility footprint. Alternate methods to performing on-site facility condition assessments need to be investigated to reduce the amount of engineering or subject matter expert resources required for a facility inspection. This study proposes several alternate methods including (1) the use of remote sensing devices to collect facility component distress information, (2) the use of building occupants to assess non-equipment components within a facility, (3) the use of maintenance professionals to assess equipment components while performing preventative maintenance actions, and (4) the use of frequent pattern data mining techniques to make future condition assumptions on associated components.

Index Terms— Facility condition assessment, frequent pattern association, remote sensing, sustainment management systems.
