Determining the function for each space in a building plays an important role for assessing the service level of an educational facility. The function layout affects how users move between spaces during their participation of activities in the facility. This research describes the integration of an activity-based simulation model and a space-function assignment optimization model with six phases, including data collection, data preparation, data mining, optimization, verification, and refinement. The paper also uses a real case to demonstrate the use of the proposed model, and has shown a 4.96% improvement on the objective value compared to the contracted architect’s original plan.
