1.IntroductionInformation is contextual understanding product and data interpretation. It is the necessitymedium through which expertise, knowledge, judgment and decisions taken by individuals isexposed, communicated and shared with others. Information management from organizationalaspects to invoke the activities that support the lifecycle of information management fromconstruction, representation and management through to interaction and reuse (Menkhoff, Eversand Chay, 2010). An information intellectual organization is one which considers the value ofdata or information and can successfully analyze, discover, assemble, search, benefit and reuseall sort of information products need for any of its process. This is certainly important ascompetitive benefits today makes data a core requirement for business process, increasingperformance of organization and obtain effectiveness of operation (Li and Poon, 2013). AnEnormous information is exchanged and lessons learned are accomplish in BIM activities.However, recent knowledge management practice is an individual process and no procedure hasbeen established to collect those lesson learned in BIM (Chong and Hermreck, 2012). Thiswould lead to lose the knowledge that will have bad impacts on BIM model and collaborations.Therefore, an integrated technique to perform knowledge management within the scope of BIMis required, so that the knowledge received from the validation system of lesson learned can begathered in knowledge management system. This research intends to construct new buildingapproach that will associate BIM and KM to fully collect and reuse knowledge in BIMmovement, and facilitate constructing lifecycle mode and operation2.Knowledge Management ConceptsThe ‘knowledge base’ represents to the types of data, information or project knowledge thatis to be handled or managed. This KM (Knowledge Management Processes) defines to theactivities and tasks that are executed to manage knowledge, within the project or organizationcontext which is even called as process shaping factors (Robinson, 2010). Information iscontextual understanding product and data interpretation. It is the necessity medium throughwhich expertise, knowledge, judgment and decisions taken by individuals is exposed,communicated and shared with others.2
2.1Data, Information and KnowledgeThe concepts of information, data and knowledge are closely related and it is commonlyconsidered that knowledge has higher level than information, and information is considered to behigher level than data. Data is a group of raw factsInformation is well structure and interpreted data Knowledge is known as extracted informationData is a group of raw factsData is a group of distinct, objective facts about action and offers no interpretation and nofeasible basis of events. Data are syntactic things and patterns without meaning, and available inusable or non-usable patterns without any implication beyond the existence.Information is well structured and interpreted data Information is well structured data provides with meanings, and is executed from theinterpretation data process. It represent information as data that are progress to be useful,promoting solution to ‘who‘, when’, ‘what’, and, ‘where’ questions”. Knowledge is extracted informationToday knowledge is become the most essential resource and asset for industry.Knowledge is dynamic justified belief of truth, and it is developed by individual and associationcommunication in the society. It is the function of data and information, and it answers ’how’questions. Although, Knowledge is developed through subjective efforts and involve judgmentrelated to data and information. Data is a carrier and collection of information and knowledge,and a publish for knowledge transfer and information exchange (Sarngadharan and Minimol,n.d.). It is determine that information is related and detailed to the past and the present, whileknowledge can be utilized to predict the future within a particular limit. The role of knowledge isto promote the operation of transforming data into information through interpretation of data,receive new information from existing information through expansion, and achieve newknowledge through learning.2.2Holistic approach of information management A holistic approach to information management needs the integration of tools, skills,processes and strategies within group to manage all sort of recorded data through its completelifecycle from creation to deletion accompanied by essential technologies and administrative3
