A group of employees -- often from multiple departments -- who are associated with one another as a working group. In addition to employees, teams can include vendors, craftspersons, and contacts (records from the Vendors, Craftspersons, and Contacts tables).
Teams may be based on work function, location, reporting structure, project, and so on. A team assignment may be for a specified amount of time -- say, four months for a project -- or may be permanent.
The Team Properties table (
team_properties) stores the team name, seat ratio, function, description, and so on. The Team Members table (
team) stores the team members -- the contacts, vendors, and employees who are assigned to a team.
A person can be a member of multiple teams.
In Archibus, teams are used in the following ways:
- Space occupancy can be based on team assignments. This is known as team space.
- In asset management, team members can be assigned to be an asset's custodian.
- Team members can be assigned to equipment items to monitor and care for the equipment throughout its lifecycle. This is known as an equipment support team. These team member may be assigned to be an equipment item's custodian, but it is not mandatory that the custodian be part of the equipment support team.
- When managing moves, you can move teams and lay out space for teams as part of a move scenario.
