||The property management phase of the construction process comprisesoperation, maintenance and minor alterations. Property management, by itsvery nature, is responsible for the greatest volume of work in the product lifecycle of a building and it is therefore of great importance to utilize IT in thiswork. An efficient way of doing so is to use a Building Product Model as acore in the information management system.A digital Building Product Model contains a logical and generaldescription of the product "building" and its creation, The complete BuildingProduct Model should contain all relevant information needed for the design,production and management of a building. The data model created and usedin this project is based on the BSAB/SfB system for classification and isdeveloped with the methodology and principles of the STEP standard.The BSAB system contains product classification tables. It is a tool for thearrangement of technical and financial information in documents anddatabases. The SfB system is the predecessor of the BSAB system and is stillin use in many countries. STEP is a series of I S 0 Standards for the Exchangeof Product Model Data. STEP is a specification for communicating productinformation at all stages in the product life cycle. The fundamentalcomponents of STEP are product information models and standards that areused as means of exchanging information corresponding to these productmodels.In this project, a conceptual scheme of a building is implemented into anobject-oriented database and a suitable user interface is created. This databasesystem is then used to handle information about a real building in sometypical property management tasks.
