In the IBS building maintenance, the conventional methods to the project delivery and its failure to form effective communication channel between complementary knowledge on IBS construction and related members that is conducted in the sequential manner has resulted in ineffectiveness for managing building maintenance, where a paradigm shift within the IBS traditional approach is necessary. The research results described are concerned with i) an integrated system to record, diagnose and analyse information for IBS building maintenance to detect patent or latent defect, select an effective repair method, provide appropriate planning decision and reduce risks of defect throughout the building lifetime. ii) building a decision making support in diagnosis in IBS building maintenance based on robust data collection about concrete defects and causes including in the selection of a durable replacement design and material or the proper rehabilitation method. The system development was based on analysis of number of interviews and case studies conducted with professional engineers working in IBS building maintenance departments. The paper concludes that implementing a CMMS Expert using BIM can help improve the performance of IBS building design, construction and maintenance operations.
