AbstractThis research proposes a new approach for modeling facility engineering processes and data to achieve integration. The so-called Primitive-Composite (or P-C) Approach is a structured methodology that can be used to design an integrated information management system for a given facility engineering domain. With this methodology, designers can analyze the domain of interest and design an object-oriented schema that can be shared among multiple users across the life-cycle phases in that domain. The P-C Approach was applied to the domain of electrical utility transmission towers and tested for that domain. A database for one specific tower was implemented using a commercial object-oriented database management system (ONTOS).
