Implementing New Technology for Efficient Facilities Management

As cities grow and populations rise, the demand for electricity and other resources in the built environment increases rapidly. This has led to a need for innovative solutions that can help Facility Managers meet these growing demands while also reducing the impact on the environment. From innovative grid systems and energy-efficient buildings to renewable energy sources and sustainable transportation options, there are many different ways that we can work towards creating a more sustainable and livable future for everyone. By embracing new technologies and approaches to urban development, we can help ensure that our cities remain vibrant, healthy, and resilient for future generations.

Implementing New Technology for Efficient Facilities Management

Facility managers have a challenging job that includes managing efficiency and comfort within budget constraints, negotiating legacy building systems, and meeting the business's ever-changing demands.

One of the most exciting shifts within the industry is a more concentrated effort toward the usage and adoption of occupant engagement. Increasingly, businesses want to align buildings and capital investments with the company's commercial mission. This requires a focus on different types of outcomes beyond reliability and efficiency.

More importantly, the industry is more demanding of implementing Artificial Intelligence, IoT, natural language processing, automation, and newer digital technologies that enable facilities to be more efficient.

Blockchain and Facilities Management

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques can analyze building and physical asset data. These technologies offer facility managers a more holistic approach to monitoring and fine-tuning the entire building and asset system.

Performing building analysis with AI and ML can help facility managers continuously improve asset health and sustainability savings. Artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques draw patterns and helpful analogies from disparate data, enabling facility managers' policy to understand better peak-hour demand and the usefulness of complete equipment and physical assets.

A unified IoT platform powered by AI and ML can provide actionable insights into facility deficiencies. Further, the building systems managed by facility professionals may become more intelligent as the data for analysis increases, leading to predictions and maintenance cycle decisions, thus improving efficiency for facility managers.

Disruptive Technology and Facility Management

The benefits of automation are boundless. Rather than relying on tenants or facility team members to constantly monitor temperature levels, the influx of work orders, or switching off the lights, a centralized Building Automation System (BAS) will seamlessly and automatically monitor these essential functions.

Furthermore, because these systems continually collect data, managers can optimize physical assets based on real-time insights. This allows the facilities management team to analyze usage patterns, giving you the power to develop strategies for saving money and improving efficiency throughout the entire asset portfolio.

IoT-integrated buildings have opened new efficient resource management methods with real-time data insights. Building systems of the future will leverage data from interconnected systems to enhance the building occupant experience. This is such an essential departure from the goals of the current building stock because, with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), there will be even greater connectivity between systems.

For example, built-in or retrofitted sensors constantly collect and record data. That data feeds software systems, and when connected to services, it allows you to interpret that data more effectively to gain better insight and ultimately find and fix problems before they happen.

Tech Trends Transforming the Facilities Management Industry

The impact of IoT and connected devices in future occupant spaces will evolve the occupant experience beyond improved energy-saving measures. IoT enables managers to control the built environment from one centralized location and gives managers deep insights into the operational performance of every physical asset in the building portfolio. This means that managers can optimize all facility functions to the highest degree.

IoT has simplified the management of multiple aspects of building facilities. Systems can be controlled and monitored on a single platform, such as a web or mobile app. The single platform makes a huge difference in a company's bottom line and the environment, making facilities management far more efficient.

New Technology for Efficient Facilities Management

We predict the Facility Management industry will experience a significant digital transformation in the coming years. By using expanded optimization solutions to focus on enhanced asset performance and maintenance management, your facilities team can save money, lower risk, and improve efficiency.
