 The creation of Facility Information Models is one of the parts of the Gellish Modeling Method, as is described in the overall Gellish Modeling Method - Architecture document. When such an information model concerns a plant, a product, a building, etc., then the result can be called a **Plant Information Model**, a **Product Information Model**, a **Building Information Model (BIM)**, etc. The creation of Facility Information Models is one of the parts of the Gellish Modeling Method, as is described in the overall Gellish Modeling Method - Architecture document.

 Important kinds of systems in which Facility Information Models will most likely be implemented are document oriented systems, such as extended Electronic Document Management Systems (extended EDMS’s), Content Management Systems (CMS systems) or Enterprise Content Management Systems (ECM systems). Another kind of systems in which Facility Information Models may be implemented are more data oriented systems, such as Product Data Management Systems (PDM systems) and Product Lifecycle Management Systems (PLM systems) or ERP systems, typically extended with 2D drawing and 3D shape representation capabilities. Important kinds of systems in which Facility Information Models will most likely be implemented are document oriented systems, such as extended Electronic Document Management Systems (extended EDMS’s), Content Management Systems (CMS systems) or Enterprise Content Management Systems (ECM systems).

 Traditionally information about a facility is recorded in documents, first in paper documents, later in electronic documents. In a Facility Information Model a core part of the information is expressed as data, which data reflects the facility and its components and their operation and possibly their properties, whereas another part consists of the remaining documents. Each of those documents is then related to the element in the facility model about which the document contains information. Traditionally information about a facility is recorded in documents, first in paper documents, later in electronic documents.

 A facility information model can be implemented in various ways. The essence is that the user of a system by which the data and documents are accessed should experience it as one integrated system. Nevertheless,​ the system may be constructed such that the documents are stored in a simple directory or such that they are be stored in a separate document management system and the data are stored in one or more databases. A facility information model can be implemented in various ways.

 The process to create an electronic Facility Information Model will depend on the available material, the phase in the (project) lifecycle of the facilities and the intended scope. \\ The process to create an electronic Facility Information Model will depend on the available material, the phase in the (project) lifecycle of the facilities and the intended scope. \\
