Jana Koers (University of Applied Sciences Münster) has officially startet her PhD at the University Twente with the working title of her thesis "Development of a generic data and information model for Facility Management-focused building design".

The research takes place within the area Facility Management-focused building design which is an essential but complex part of modern Real Estate Management. Various stakeholders in different constellations are involved in these planning processes and each one contributes a different scope of performance. With regard to this it is a challenging task to handle the cooperation and information exchange processes. A huge amount of data, documents and information from multiple sources and systems have to be identified, proved, saved, processed and made accessible. Hence, a model will be developed to visualize the cooperation and information exchanges between all involved stakeholders. A solution for an uninterrupted information exchange and the efficient inclusion of all involved partners for better managing the complexity in FM-focused planning will be generated.

The research focuses on a close interaction between theoretical and practical experience in the facilities management industry. It is based on empirical studies and indicates a close cooperation between science and practice in the project. The model will be implemented in known companies and evaluated in different business case studies.
