Abstract: Although it is proved that Building Information Modeling (BIM) can improve building maintenance performance, there is a lack of efficient maintenance strategies and right decision-making approaches for improving Facility Maintenance Management (FMM) activities. BIM based on Augment Reality (AR) can enhance the activity of FMM by providing appropriate information as well as user-friendly visualization. In this study, a framework for end-users and facility managers to report and manage maintenance requests was developed. This will help FM team to optimize building maintenance strategies and decision-making and finally reduce the costs associated with the maintenance activities in the buildings.
