The most important decisions about a building or structure are made during the early stages of design when the least amount of detailed information is available. Analysis tools that can help designers assess the implications of their decisions across a range of important parameters are needed. These should all be capable of operating from a single shared representation of the project. Once these initial decisions are made, designers need to be able to track the results as the building design becomes more comprehensive. This allows deviations to be identified, and then either corrected or the earlier decisions reconsidered. This process needs to continue until the building design is completed and then fed into the building usage and management phase of the facility's life. This chapter provides a vision of how such systems will operate in the future and examines the current state of integrated, whole-life cycle analysis systems. This allows areas where gaps exist to be identified.
