    For bringing out full capabilities of manufacturing facilities, various maintenance activities are necessary throughout the facility life cycle from design to the end of its life. We have been proposing the necessity of a support system for achieving efficient and consistent life cycle facility management based on a facility model. In this paper, the structure of the facility model is presented. The model can represent the hierarchical structure of facilities. It also provides flexible means to represent various technical information relevant to the facility management. The effectiveness of the model is shown by a deterioration evaluation system of the facility.
