Building Lifecycle Management (BLM) involves “adaptation of product lifecycle management – like techniques to design, construction, and management of buildings.” It requires a standardized ontology and the integration of disparate competencies, technologies, and processes.
In other words, BLM is “the practice of designing, constructing, and operating a facility with a single set of interoperable data.”  It is operationalized through a robust Product Lifecycle Management system, which creates an efficient environment for coordinating complex Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) data.
Building Lifecycle Management requires accurate and extensive Building Information Modeling (BIM). BLM adopts a BIM Level 3 approach that enables a highly efficient collaborative process based on manufacturing industry best practices.
