Abstract:

Layout Composer is one of the Facility Composer suite of tools, created for use by facility planners, designers, and engineers during the initial phases of facility planning and design. In Facility Composer, customer-specific and computable criteria are associated with a growing facility model that continues throughout the life cycle of the facility. Facility Composers ability to maintain a linkage between criteria and project elements site, building, story, etc. is beneficial in that it 1 helps in defining criteria and recording their rationale 2 helps ensure that critical criteria are followed, and that desired characteristics are recorded and addressed 3 helps organize criteria and makes them available at their point of use and 4 simplifies creation, maintenance, and distribution of new criteria. This work has developed user documentation for the Layout Composer application, to help users rapidly create 2D and 3D conceptual facility designs solutions.
