The BUILDER™ Sustainment Management System (SMS) is a web-based software application that helps civil engineers, technicians and managers decide when, where and how to best maintain building infrastructure. The BUILDER™ SMS process provides a proactive means of asset management and resource allocation.
ARCHIBUS has added the following enhancements for working with BUILDER™ SMS.
The table below lists the new capabilities and associated benefits for BUILDER™ SMS inspections.
|New methods of collecting the latest assessment results - on Smartphones, Desktop, Tablet, or a third party.||Enable field inspection of assets and management of assessment results for in-house and outsourced staff, regardless of whether the assessor uses tablets, smartphones or desktops.|
|Perform direct-rating assessments, while being able to collect additional information.||Group assets by their direct rating assessments and use this rating information to determine if the direct-rated asset or group of assets require normal maintenance, additional minor maintenance, additional maintenance required to return to acceptable service level, major overhaul, or the asset is non-serviceable and requires replacement.|
|Manage assessments as projects.||Group asset assessment inspections by individual equipment and systems, improve planning and tracking of assessment projects. For example, assign a project with a set of assessments to specific assessors.|
|Additional operational and managerial reports.||Reports like Equipment Failure Analysis, Equipment Maintenance History and Number of Work Requests for the same equipment allow assessment managers to identify assets that benefit the most from re-inspection.|
Integrating ARCHIBUS Capital Budgeting and Project Management with BUILDER™ SMS Funding Sources and Work Plans provides these benefits.
||Access projects easily to conduct project postmortems. Use historical knowledge gained to better plan projects in the long term.|
||Manage bids for each work-package from different vendors. Helps to group and manage project activities that may be at different phases of a project, but require a vendor with the same trade skills.|
Implement a management process for projects. Gain better control over project execution.
Initiate more than just sustainability work projects and group all projects into a strategic master program.
|Improved reporting for section or equipment approaching end of service life, or having zero remaining life expectancy.||
Plan for existing asset disposal and replacement to maintain business continuity.
Identify under-performing assets that may not be meeting service life expectations, and take appropriate action.
|Asset Managers can now organize buildings into complexes and export to or import from BUILDER™ SMS.||
This is especially useful if real estate portfolio inventory has a large number of buildings at a single site.
Such grouping helps to quickly identify and conduct asset management activities in buildings that have the same function (example: classroom buildings on a campus) or hold the same classes of assets, or have the same lessor or lessee.
