DEVELOPMENT OF GIS DATABASE AND FACILITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: ASSET AND SPACE IN UKM
Facility Management (FM) has becoming a crucial aspect in providing better service to the client/tenant or public as well as to minimize the maintenance cost. Group of buildings bounded by a defined boundary/spatial space such as a college, university, city or even a country have to manage their assets and space systematically with maximum potential/usage and minimum maintenance cost. Incorporating GIS plays innovative and effective role in asset and space FM especially. There are a lot of research and suggestions for it, but implementation is still average and quite new in Malaysia. University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM Bangi) has taken initiative to perform such idea with a full scale implementation. Currently, UKM utilizes GIS in nine modules, where one of the main module called SEPADU, an internal use module system for asset and space information system. This paper describes the implementation of integrated GIS solution in information system. Spatial data acquisition, database development and system for FM will be discussed in this paper.
