BIM and FM people, new Labs Project

I hope you facilities management types out there, that are keeping an eye out for such things, have noticed the new project from Autodesk Labs.

They're currently testing an application which provides a link between Maximo and Revit (for those non-FM people, IBM Maximo is a CMMS, or a computerized maintenance management system, aka, work orders).

You can get download and test here. If you can try it out, be sure to provide feedback, that's what they want and need to see if they can make this a viable product.

From the Labs site:

Richly attributed data about building assets, that are developed in Revit during the building design and construction phases, can be published directly into Maximo during commissioning or at building "handover," thus supporting more immediate and efficient use of Maximo once the building is occupied. The Revit asset data can be exported in the COBie data specification, if desired. In addition, the BIM/3D asset data can be viewed inside Maximo, in context with Maximo applications and processes.
The technology preview consists of an add-in to Revit 2013 and integrated visualization of Autodesk® BIM 360 Glue viewer inside Maximo Version 7.1 or newer.

Autodesk® BIM 360™ Glue is a data-centric, cloud-based management solution for building and infrastructure projects that provides easier access to project models and data to support collaborative, multidisciplinary workflows across authoring tools and project control applications. It enhances cross-team coordination globally as updates are made more quickly available in project models. For more information about BIM 360 Glue, please go to www.autodesk.com/bim360

My facility has not yet upgraded to Maximo, but, I hope we'll be able to get it done soon.
