||The Building Envelope Life Cycle Asset Management (BELCAM) project,lead by the National Research Council Canada (NRCC) and Public Worksand Government Service Canada (PWGSC), is a "proof of concept" projectaimed at helping asset managers to predict the remaining service life ofbuilding envelope components and to maximize the return on theirmaintenance expenditure. The BELCAM project focuses on flat or lowslopeconventional roofing systems as a representative domain. This paperfocuses on maintenance management, which is primarily concerned with themanagement of all technical and administrative tasks involved inmaintaining a building element in, or restoring it to, a state in which it canperform its intended function. A framework for the integration of theprocess of managing maintenance of roofing systems is proposed. Theframework consists of five sequential steps: (1) Identification of roofingsystem components requiring assessment, (2) Identification of roofingsystem performance requirements, (3) Identification of performanceassessment methods, (4) Roofing system maintenance planning, (5) Roofingsystem maintenance operations management. This paper introduces aframework for roofing systems maintenance management. It presents apreliminary analysis of an integrated information system to supportmaintenance management. The paper follows the developmentmethodology adopted by the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI)to represent the high-level information within the proposed framework ofmaintenance management. IAI projects follow a standard process-orienteddevelopment methodology, involving the following steps: usage scenarios,process definitions, information analysis and information modeling andvalidation.
