One of the problems with the current practices in the various domains of facility management is that each facility is managed by its stake holder in isolation from the management of other similar facilities. However, with the advent of new technologies such as cloud computing, we have an opportunity to unify the management of multiple geographically dispersed facilities. To that end, this paper presents our joint research efforts on cloud-based smart facility management. More precisely, we present a cloud-based platform in order to manage sensor-based bridge infrastructures and smart machinery. Although the paper focuses on these two applications, the proposed cloud-based platform is designed to support/manage a multitude of smart facilities.
