Maximize Asset Performance with Asset Information Modeling

Asset Information Modeling (AIM) extends Building Information Modeling (BIM) principles beyond the construction phase into the entire lifecycle of an asset. By creating a detailed digital representation of the physical and functional characteristics of an asset, comprehensive information can be accessed throughout a project's lifecycle. These models include data about design, construction, operation, and maintenance.


  • Efficiently manage assets throughout their entire lifecycle, from design and construction to operation, maintenance.
  • Optimize costs by providing insights into maintenance schedules, performance data, and operational efficiency.
  • Implement predictive maintenance strategies, leveraging historical performance data to anticipate and address potential issues before they impact operations.
  • Integrate with Internet of Things (IoT) devices to allow AIM to provide real-time monitoring of asset performance.
  • Utilize 3D modeling capabilities, offering a visual representation of assets and their components.
  • Streamline facility management by integrating data related to maintenance schedules, equipment performance, and occupancy information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the production of the AIM fit in a BIM workflow?
AIM production typically integrates into the later stages of the BIM workflow, specifically during the operational and maintenance phases when the digital model transitions into a dynamic tool for ongoing asset management.
What information is contained in the AIM?
AIM encompasses comprehensive data related to the physical asset, including design specifications, construction details, operational parameters, maintenance schedules, and any other pertinent information that contributes to a holistic understanding of the asset's lifecycle.
Who uses the information in the AIM and what for?
Stakeholders such as facility managers and maintenance teams utilize AIM to make informed decisions related to asset management, maintenance planning, and operational optimization. The information aids in proactive maintenance, resource allocation, and overall efficiency enhancement.
How is the data in the Asset Information Model managed?
Data in AIM is systematically managed and updated through a structured process. Regular inputs from various sources, including maintenance records, sensor data, as-built changes, and operational feedback, contribute to keeping the model accurate and reflective of the asset's current state. This proactive approach ensures the AIM remains a reliable resource for decision-makers.
