This report describes the process for identifying building functionality criteria and assessing the functional capability of Army facility real property. The criteria are to be incorporated into a process to measure the functionality and performance of existing Army buildings for support of sustainment, restoration, and modernization SRM decisions. This process is based on a general functionality assessment framework developed for the BUILDERTM Sustainment Management System SMS. BUILDER includes an algorithm and procedure for calculating a building functionality index FI based on a predefined set of criteria. The FI indicates any decrease in building performance due to technical obsolescence, user requirement changes, or new codes or standards. These generalized criteria are supplemented with Army-specific criteria based on current Army Standards and Army Standard Designs. In addition, facility functionality-related criteria from the Army Installation Status Report for Infrastructure ISR-I are identified and mapped to BUILDER criteria. This linkage provides a way to exchange information between ISR-I and BUILDER, creating the technical basis for an integrated facility management environment. This report presents the results of the work and offers recommendations pertaining to future integration efforts.
