Abstract: This research targets the creation of indices to enforce standard assessment for group of educational buildings and to set common understanding of facilities’ condition among different stakeholders. This model contains four levels of performance assessment that deal with program, facility, package, and element. AHP-fuzzy model is built using linguistic expression to represent condition of asset. The proposed model generates standard indices for three levels (element, package, and facility) which are aggregated to provide realistic condition assessment for a group of facilities (program). For evaluation of this model, a case study is presented with data from 21 schools in Giza governorate-Egypt to provide these indices. Example for assessment of two elements is worked out to illustrate the feasibility of this model. Outputs could be used by management as part of the decision support system.

Keywords: AHP, Fuzzy Logic, Facility Assessment, Educational facilities, Condition index.
