Forty years ago computerized maintenance management, commonly known as CMMS, was an advance in FM technology. It hasn’t really changed much since. CMMS didn’t work very well for managing preventative maintenance then, and it still doesn’t now.
With ever more complex buildings, and demands for more proactive maintenance processes, CMMS now looks more unattractive than ever. Due to COVID-19, proactive cleaning/sanitization and proactive indoor air quality, have now moved to critical needs to support tenant/occupant re-entry.
Digital supply chains are long established in other industries. Forty years ago consumer product manufacturers started putting bar codes on their products, to streamline the point-of-sale, and help them collect better data across their supply chain.
These bar codes allowed retailers to digitize the point-of-sale, capturing sales transaction in real-time, updating inventory, and re-ordering quicker, with less administration. The entire supply chain benefited. Today, the retail point-of-sale experience is often self-serve. Simply scan, tap and go.
What is commonplace for the product point-of-sale, is now available for the point-of-service in facilities; HVAC, electrical, plumbing, security, automation, cleaning…all building services…delivered online, in real-time.
COVID-19 has put new pressures on facilities operators to demonstrate proactive health, safety and environmental practices. When was this washroom last cleaned? When were the air filters last replaced? Is indoor air quality meeting ASHRAE specifications? Are air conditioning units able to adequately cool the increased fresh air? Was the work actually done? Where are we wasting energy? Building owners, tenants and occupants now care.
