Date of Defense 1989-12-15 Availability restricted AbstractComputer 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
