[Guest Blog] How to make big facility management expectations a reality


This is a guest blog submitted by Arundhati Ghosh, Account Manager at VueOps. VueOps will be at Forge DevCon this year - come find them in the Visualization Zone in the Village. Forge DevCon will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Monday, November 18. Get tickets here!


We all know that uncovering the root cause of any building issue starts with building owners, facility operators or managers. Researching the issue, gathering warranty documents and troubleshooting solutions, etc. can be complicated and time consuming. 


But what if there was a way to make it easier? What if you could maximize the use of data that is consolidated onto a single system to prevent downtime, save money and take advantage of rich Building Information Modeling (BIM)?


It is possible with VueOps™, a custom digital solution offering the latest in data management and visualization.By bringing together turnover documents, facility locations, equipment data, viewers for documents, images, video, and 2D/3D models, teams have a simple and intuitive way to manage information specific to locations and assets installed in buildings. This situational information is right at your fingertips to better search, manage, and inspect facilities through their entire lifecycle. 


The VueOps data integration platform includes data qualification, extraction, validation, and update framework that fulfill the important job of transforming project information into data that helps building managers and operators maintain and manage smart sustainable buildings.


It can be used to find and view design, product, operations and maintenance information about equipment holistically for incidence response and maintenance events, and eventually incorporate with asset health and diagnosis tools.


Current computerized maintenance management solutions (CMMS) and building management systems (BMS) may alert your teams to a problem, but they do not give you all the data and information in just one place to solve that problem quickly. That’s why VueOps also integrates with the owner's existing systems including IBM(R) Maximo(R).


Facility Management requirements are often not communicated, but highly valued. Understanding how maintenance workflows differ from those of space management is critical. VueOps helps teams focus on what assets matter to deliver asset data in the right format and at the right time including mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP), architectural assets, naming and data schemas. 


There is a lot of talk about facility management as a technical solution, not a process, standard or culture-driven solution. By utilizing years of building expertise and observing project operators, asking questions and truly understanding how a project will be used throughout its lifecycle, VueOps has created a nexus of technical and situational information that is all in one spot. The VueOps team has been developing the strategies and data sharing methodologies to collect this data from across these domains. The platform delivers this information to clients in a usable format to target many of the common systems used in building management and maintenance.


Keeping all systems running at peak performance may seem daunting, but with the help of a team of experts in project documentation and turnover and BIM for facility management standards and processes, VueOps has you covered. 


We’ll see you at #ForgeDevCon in Las Vegas! Find us in the Visualization Zone in the Village on Monday, November 18 and/or visit https://vueops.com.
