Abstract

This paper propose to benchmark the performance of space management in Faculty of Geoinformation Science and Engineering (FKSG), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) with four other competitors: Faculty of Information Science and Technology (FIST) and Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) from Multimedia University (MMU), and Faculty of Technology Management (FPT) and Faculty of Information Technology and Multimedia (FTMM) from Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). The data was collected through interview, questionnaire, as well as secondary sources such as books, journal, article, and earlier research. The data was analysis using both qualitative and quantitative technique. Results and analysis show that both faculty from MMU, namely FIST and FBL are leading in all the comparisons done except for room frequency of computer rooms. Furthermore, some effective space management method was listed out through analyzing space management system of these five faculties and interview with the officer in-charge of each faculty. Few methods were suggested for improving space management performance in FKSG, UTM, including review and evaluation on space management system; development of better space management system and staff training; lease out teaching space for higher utilization rate and more income, and establish centralized computer rooms to replace current computer rooms.
