Abstract
Computer applications have become popular and widespread in architecture and other related

fields. While the architect uses a computer for design and construction of a building, the user

takes the advantage of computer for maintenance of the building. Inventory and facility management

are two such fields where computer applications have become predominant.

The project has investigated the use and application of different commercially available computer

software in the above mentioned fields. A set of user requirements for inventory and

facility management were established for different organizations. Four different types of software

were chosen to examine their capabilities for fulfilling the requirements. Software from

different vendors were chosen to compare and study the feasibility of application of each. The

process of evaluation has been developed as a methodology for assessing different computer

software applications in inventory and facility management: Special software applications and

hardware considerations for developing computer-aided inventory and facility management,

has also been discussed.

The documentation and evaluation of software shall provide a person the basic knowledge of

computer applications in inventory and facility management. The study shall also help building

managers and facility managers develop their own criteria for choosing computer software

to fulfill their particular requirements
