Abstract:

The accessibility and communication of information used for the planning, programming, and design of Air Force facilities can determine the quality of early cost estimates, the efficiency of the design process, and the future operational effectiveness of a facility type. Since the 1950s, the Air Force has standardized facility information in an attempt to realize cost and time savings in the building delivery process. This thesis analyzes the past and present systems of packaging standardized information for facility types and proposes a new Facility Type Information Package FTIP. The proposed FTIP should reduce the costs of obtaining facility type information, provide a more complete communication of information, improve the updating process, and will give directions for incorporating site specific information. General guidelines for the preparation of FTIPs and an example for a Child Care Center are also included. Author
