IBM® Maximo® Extension for Building Information Models (BIM) provides the ability to leverage BIM data within Maximo. This includes support for importing/updating BIM data, export from Maximo, and full 3D display of BIM data in context with Maximo applications and processes. The data import implements a subset of the COBie standard: http://www.wbdg.org/resources/cobie.php. The Maximo 3D Viewer integrates with Autodesk® BIM360® viewer.

Building Information Models (BIM) is a digital representation of the building that is created and updated during the design and build phases of construction. This data model provides the information in its attributes to describe (in detail) the infrastructure of a building. This is becoming more frequently used by contractors and is part of the hand-over of a building to the owner. This model provided at hand-over is generally referred to as the "as built" state of the building. Building owners who are commissioning a building into production need the information in this model to perform facilities management. The process of loading this information into maintenance products (like Maximo) is costly, time consuming, and may introduce errors. The code contained in this package allows the automatic loading of data in the BIM model into Maximo to begin the process of maintaining the building. This model associated with the operational state of the building is referred to as the "as maintained" state of the building.
- Full COBie certification with support for 12 COBie tables and partial support for two additional tables
- Merge of multiple COBie data sets on import to support complex projects with multiple model files.
- Merge of imported data with existing Maximo configuration including: Attributes, classifications, units of measure, and other data to support integration of COBie data with enterprise data standards
- Merge of COBie data with previously imported COBie.
- Update of previously imported data with new COBie data to support multiple data drops over a project life-cycle
- Update non-COBie Maximo data with imported COBie data to support renovations and model created for existing buildings
- Export of COBie data to support interchanges with other COBie compliant operational systems.
In addition, there is a set of extensions to existing Maximo applications and new product and design specification applications to support the imported data. The 3D viewer support provides out of the box support for the Autodesk "Large Model Viewer" from the view and data API. The BIM360 viewer technology. In addition, there is an open API to support integration of viewer from other vendors. These viewers are directly integrated into the Maximo UI.
BIM360 Viewer features:
- Automatic selection and display of the correct model
- Viewer context is synchronized to Maximo
- Maximo context is synchronized to the viewer
- The viewer may be used for asset selection
- Create work orders and service request from the viewer
- Display assets with open work order or service requests.
- Display Create and Edit Maximo systems
- Create a library of predefined views
