Abstract
Facility Management (FM) is a critical component of the operational phase of a building's life cycle, which includes management of building systems and its services. A large quantity of data is collected from maintaining a building through FM. One question that arises is how can this data be distributed between different systems? A solution to this problem is important for facility managers and maintenance staff. This paper discusses the merits of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and its potential use in applications within the FM sector. The paper also reports a prototypical demonstrator implementation of an RFID based information management system for FM-scenarios. The prototype was deployed and tested in an office room at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland. The applicability of RFID for Decentralised Information Management (DIM) was applied and specific results for demonstration outputs were achieved.
