Administrating, managing and protecting buildings, assets and facilities – with a system
Facility management (FM) is according to GEFMA (German Facility Management Association) an efficient management method, which unites necessary support (or secondary) processes of a company’s core business. A facility manager focuses thereby on a job engineering, retention of values and return on assets.DIN EN 15221-1 “Facility management” (Part 1: Terminology) provides, for the first time in Germany, the norm for terminology and structures in FM based on the work of European Standards Committee CEN 348. Analogous to GEFMA 100-1 it is clearly defined here, that the securing of the company’s core business (primary processes) is the subject all FM services should refer to.
EAM Software GmbH has integrated the neXt.fm (the product of wwsneXt GmbH) and IBM Maximo EAM in collaboration with wwsneXt GmbH. In this connection the Maximo Enterprise Adapter was used to integrate the data to the system due to Maximo business logic.
neXt.fm is easy to operate but highly efficient software for inventory, facility, floor-space, document, cleaning, cash, contract and maintenance management. It is an outstanding tool to edit relevant data from graphical as-completed drawings.
Configuration and servicing of a site structure is graphically supported by neXt.fm. Even asset structures could be built in neXt.fm and transferred to Maximo. The details of a data communication could be configured with the help of an appropriate tool due to customer requirements.
- graphical representation and navigation
- floor-space management
- room book
- asset management
- service management
- work order management
The combination of both products ensures the integrated and easily maintained database. Maximo receives a needed master data immediately, so asset management can be started without wasting time and efforts for data capturing.
