Abstract:

Over the past several years, the Architectural Engineering and Construction AEC industry has been making a substantial effort to create an standard facility modeling format known as the Industry Foundation Class IFC, which has now made it possible to capture criteria and requirements during planning and design, and then to reuse this data during the life cycle of the facility. This research effort is par of the Fort Future program, which is developing a capability to model, simulate, assess, and optimize installation capabilities to support the Objective Force. The Facility Acquisition component of Fort Future, Facility Composer, will shorten the time required to acquire facilities while ensuring that Objective Force and Future Combat Systems FCS criteria and requirements are met. Facility Composer tools support capturing and tracking of facility criteria and requirements, planning and design charrettes, and associated planning and design analyses. Planning Composer is one of the primary tools in the Facility Composer application suite, which helps users create an architectural program and to set values for project specific criteria. This work contains a User Guide for the Planning Composer software.
