Prioritization System for Building Maintenance Applications in Public Universities

Chih-Yuan Chang, Yuan-Chu Chang, Shyh-Meng Huang

This research present a system named Prioritization System (PS) to support the maintenance engineers while they are making the decision about the priorities for maintenance applications of school buildings. Distinguished from the other research done before, which built the priority model only with historical data, the PS presented in this research bases both on historical data and knowledge, which is deposited in a school maintenance knowledge base. The standard estimation criteria and electronic medicine documents of buildings are set into the PS, which will be integrated with a School Building Maintenance System (SBMS). Automatically prioritized by the system according to the estimation criteria could avoid mis-determining subjectively made by people themselves. Besides, the system enhances its decision support and reduces the replacement cost for management jobs.
