Using Real-Time CMMS Asset Data Capture During Construction to Improve Facility Management

Sep 01, 2012

This article explores the value proposition of using mobile applications to capture real-time asset data for improving facility management (FM) activities. Currently, new asset information is delivered to the FM group after construction as a “handover.” What asset data is received is manually loaded into the owner’s computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) after handover or, in some cases, is never loaded at all. By adopting a transition to operations approach with real-time CMMS asset data capture, not only does FM improve, it makes facility managers a part of the project “team” and not just the ones who come in after the dust clears.
