WICHE Management Information Systems Program. Higher Education Facilities Planning and Management Manuals Project. (SAM-Space Analysis Manuals Project) Project Description.
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, Boulder, CO.
This report describes the basic objectives, assumptions, orientation and development of the Space Analysis Manuals Project. The main objective is to write and distribute a series of annuals describing methods and procedures for use by college and university personnel in planning and managing college and university facilities. One of the basic assumptions is that the primary audience will be composed of administrative personnel and faculty at new and/or small institutions who are not specialists in facilities planning and management. The material presented in the manuals will include, first, measures of present capacity, and, second, program planning and analysis, including detailed and generalized planning and analysis. The manuals will be oriented to the evaluation and management of existing facilities within the framework of present and future program requirements of an institution. A structural diagram of the project is also presented. The appendices give: (1) projections of program characteristics, including academic programs, academic support programs, administration, student services, and physical plant; (2) space management analysis and the projections of facilities requirements for instruction, research laboratories, offices, study, housing and dining, general use, physical education and athletics, and general support; (3) factor relationships in building space programming; and (4) the project schedule.
