Facilities management, one of the fastest growing segments of the building industries profession, is finding ever greater use for computers. Until now, however, there has been little published information for the professional facilities manager on what features to look for when purchasing hardware and software, and how to effectively use spreadsheet, CAD, and database programs. Computer-Aided Facilities Management is the first book to address issues of electronic automation for the facilities manager, including: cost containment; maintenance of floor plans; planning; and allocation of interior space. Also included are job-tested techniques for installing and implementing systems and a look ahead to future changes in computing technology. This book is essential reading for today's informed facilities manager, architect, interior designer, and contractor.
